Despite this agreement notable HBO shows like Games of Thrones, Succession, The Sopranos, and The Wire will not be Netflix as they have been kept off the deal. Even though this is not the first that HBO shows have appeared on a rival platform, this deal in particular is surely paying off for the studio.
