Red by HBO (formerly Screen Red, but simply known as Red) was a Southeast Asian pay television movie channel. It was a joint venture between HBO Asia and the Hong Kong studio Mei Ah Entertainment. Launched in 2010, the channel focused primarily on films from Asian countries, all of which are presented in their original language and with localized subtitles available. The channel was unlike most HBO networks in that it carried advertising.
In October 2015, the channel rebranded as Red by HBO. The rebranding signified a widening in the channel's scope to cover all of Southeast Asia (in addition to China, Japan, and South Korea); and a new on-air appearance meant to evoke contemporary interpretations of Asian imagery.
On July 1, 2021, Red by HBO was discontinued throughout Asia, with the last film(s) aired The Garden of Evening Mists and Helen the Baby Fox. Refurbished by Red by HBO Screenplay Films
