The telco says that it experiences high demand from customers for video-on-demand streaming services and notes that video traffic penetration has increased by 62% annually from total traffic within its network, and now contributes three-fifths of overall traffic. It also said that there has been high demand for HBO GO content and so its collaboration with WarnerMedia is designed to accommodate customer needs as well as provide added value to video streamers in Indonesia.

As part of the launch, Telkomsel will offer three MAXstream HBO GO data plans for pre-paid and post-paid customers: MAXstream HBO GO IDR 60,000 includes 5GB MAXstream quota valid for 30 days; MAXstream Gala starting from IDR 69,000 which includes access to content from MAXstream, HBO GO, Viu, and Vidio Gold for 30 days and MAXstream quota starting from 7GB; as well as Halo Play starting from IDR 110,000 which includes access from MAXstream, HBO GO, Viu, and Vidio Premier Gold for 30 days and internet package, SMS and phone calls.

“This partnership allows a whole new consumer base in Indonesia to enjoy our premium selection of movies and TV series,” commented Clement Schwebig, managing director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Southeast Asia, Pacific and China, which operates HBO in Asia. “HBO GO on the MAXstream bundle will offer the very best in movies, drama and comedy, as well as kids’ content and the biggest fan-favourites.”

Telkomsel director of marketing Rachel Goh said the collaboration demonstrates Telkomsel’s commitment as a digital telco company to always focus on its customer by providing solutions and digital services. “Telkomsel is very excited about the collaboration,” she said.
