LONDON — Google has inked a deal with HBO to make several shows available on its TV service, Google Play, in the U.K., extending a pact in the U.S. announced in October.

Shows covered by the deal include “Game of Thrones,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “True Blood,” “Girls” and “Veep,” as well as older shows, such as “The Wire,” “The Sopranos” and “Band of Brothers.”

The price per episode is £1.89 ($3.10), while full seasons range from £14.49 ($23.75) for “Veep” to £21.99 ($36.05) for “Boardwalk Empire.”

“This is an exciting time for HBO in the digital space and we can’t wait to work with Google over the coming weeks and months to deliver all of our series and films to their platform, including a host of new and returning HBO shows throughout 2014.”
