NEW YORK (AP) — HBO lovers have one more way to watch “Game of Thrones.”

If you subscribe to Dish’s $20-a-month Internet TV service, Sling TV, you can order HBO for an extra $15 each month. That’s the same price as the new HBO Now Internet service you can get, for now, through Apple and New York-area cable company Cablevision.

Sling TV is Dish Network Corp.’s attempt to attract the estimated 10 million households who pay only for Internet and not for cable.

The satellite TV provider and Time Warner Inc. said Tuesday that the HBO service over Sling TV will include the live HBO channel and on-demand TV shows and movies.

It’s supposed to launch in time for the season premiere of “Game of Thrones” on April 12.
