"HBO Latin America is very pleased to announce this agreement for a new and long-lasting partnership with LIME and its subscribers. LIME is now able to provide its customers the option of enjoying premium programming, just in time for them to tune in to new seasons of original series like Game of Thrones, True Blood, Veep and The Newsroom," said Javier Figueras, Corporate Vice President of Sales for HBO Latin America. "We both have an aligned goal of delivering the highest quality in entertainment with the best technology available to the market."
In addition to the paid channels above, LIME will also add the following HBO channels to their basic line-up to enhance their channel offerings: Cinemax, Warner Channel, Sony Entertainment Television, AXN, Sony Spin and E! Entertainment Television.
"We are delighted not only on the long awaited launch of LIME TV in Cayman but we're also excited to offer Caymanians quality programming that's always on. The launch of HBO/MAX adds a new, unique and compelling dimension of choice and value to our premium movie channel platform," said Dianne Bissoon, VP Television & Entertainment. "This further strengthens our partnership with HBO in other LIME TV islands such as Barbados and St. Lucia and we look forward to enhancing our partnership in years to come."
This agreement makes LIME the first cable operator in the Cayman Islands to legally offer its subscribers quality programming from HBO. Joining several cable partners throughout the Caribbean who have already established agreements with HBO, LIME is positioned to provide the best entertainment value for its subscribers now and in the future.
