(Reuters) – HBO network is in talks with Apple Inc, Google Inc and some other companies to be its launch partner for the highly anticipated HBO Now video streaming service, according to two media reports. The service’s retail price is expected to be $15 a month and will launch next month, timed to the season premier of HBO’s blockbuster series “Game of Thrones,” the International Business Times reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. HBO, ramping up plans for an a-la-carte version of its premium channel, is in talks with at least five companies including Apple and Google to distribute the Web-only service, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter. TiVo Inc, which makes digital video recorders, is in discussions with HBO about distributing the service, Chief Executive Tom Rogers told Bloomberg.
