Submission + - TV streaming in Scandinavia gearing up and hbo goes streaming only (variety.com)

An anonymous reader writes: For years people outside the US have been denied access to services such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO.
Getting access to fx. Netflix using VPN services has been so popular that most (print)newspapers and tech sites in denmark have had detailed articles about how to to get it working.

Now Netflix and HBO has announced their arrival in Scandinavia too so the local services with very limited content might finally get proper competition.
Unlike the US, HBO delivers streaming without the need for a cable subscription. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings made light of the competition in a post on his Facebook page: "Excited to see HBO join us in offering standalone streaming service in Scandinavia...what about the USA?"

Now we cross our fingers and hope we get the full package and not just limited access although it seems unlikely they will be able to work that into their current business model.
