A month has passed since Game of ThronesSeason 7 wrapped up. Fans are restless about the next season. According to Screenrant, fans have another two years to wait until its next season comes out. HBO is also experiencing the burn after “Game of Thrones” Season 7 concluded. According to a report by Variety, HBO is witnessing a fall in its subscription rates over the last month or so. They believe that it has something to do with “Game of Thrones” concluding. The show has garnered quite a following during its time on the network. HBO has witnessed viewership records being set, thanks to the “Game of Thrones” fame.

Many of the fans even began subscribing to HBO Now to watch exclusive episodes and clippings.

The inception of HBO Now

HBO launched its video-streaming platform back in 2015. The entertainment network provides users access to its TV shows and movies in exchange for a monthly subscription fee. The platform faces tough competition from other services such as Amazon Prime and Netflix. These platforms have a wide variety of content to offer to its users. HBO Now had had a difficult time keeping up with this pace. They, however, began experiencing a surge in the subscription rate as soon as Season 7 premiere aired.

According to Sensor Tower, these subscription rates fell by around 22 percent towards the end of the fifth season.

The rate picked up the pace when Season 6 premiered but fell by almost 60 percent once the segment concluded. The same thing took place when “Game of Thrones” Season 7 premiered and concluded. Fortunately for HBO, they didn’t fall by a big margin. The platform only experienced a seven percent loss in the revenue.

More regarding the show

According to a report by Deadline, one of the main reasons why they experienced a smaller loss is because of “The Deuce,” by David Simon. Many fans have continued to remain hooked on to HBO because of “The Wire” creator’s latest innovation. The show narrates the origins of the porn industry, which took place in the late 1970’s.

Additionally, “Westworld” season 2 will also be premiering in the spring of this year. There is a huge fan following for this science-fiction/drama series as well. HBO CEO, Richar Plepner was quoted by Winter is Coming as saying that the platform is finally stabilizing in terms of its subscriber base. According to the Daily Mail, shooting for the last season of the show is already underway, creating, even more, excitement for fans.
