HBO’s CTO Resigns, After Outsourcing its Streaming Technology

/ 3 years ago


HBO has announced it will be releasing a new video streaming service that would be a separate entity to its HBO Go service, after which the company’s Chief Technology Officer Otto Berkes resigned, stating that in a way, he “couldn’t pull it off.”

Berkes wrote in a memory that Variety secured, where he said “Recently HBO’s management decided to partner with a third party to assist HBO in bringing our OTT service to market in 2015. This is a change in direction from what I planned with HBO and the approach will not utilize my overall capabilities. Therefore, I feel that this is the right time for me to move on from HBO so that I am able to fully pursue my passion building world-class technology teams, products and businesses.”
