SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc will pay more than $300 million over three years to offer older shows from premium-cable channel HBO over the next three years, tech blog Re/code reported on Thursday, citing multiple people familiar with the deal.
Amazon’s streaming video service will offer shows like “The Sopranos” starting next month. The deal value reported by Re/code is less than the $200 million a year estimated by analysts.
HBO is owned by Time Warner Inc.
