HBO has announced plans to offer viewers an online service in 2015.

The cable network will begin selling a digital version that will not require a pay-TV subscription next year, CEO Richard Plepler revealed at an investor presentation today (October 15).

Plepler explainer that HBO will launch a "standalone, over the top" version of HBO in the US in 2015.

He added that the company will work with "current partners", and that others may join in the near future. However, further details were not provided.

HBO is currently available to customers who buy other bundles of TV networks from providers such as Comcast. Last year, HBO generated $4.9 billion in revenue.

Industry insiders have stated that HBO and Time Warner could work with companies such as Amazon and Hulu to market and deliver its web content, according to Re/code.
