HBO appears to be a television juggernaut, powered by “Game of Thrones,” one of the biggest hits in the history of cable. But as the fantasy series began shooting its final six-episode season last month, the network faced a series of new hurdles. It has no obvious successor to “Thrones,” and it must contend with a highly competitive landscape in which Apple, Amazon and Netflix pour billions into content.
"For Years, HBO Was a Juggernaut. But Its Future After ‘Game of Thrones’ is a Lot Less Clear." is from the November 27, 2017 Business section of The Washington Post. It was written by Steven Zeitchik and narrated by Sam Scholl.
