Time Warner's (TWX) HBO will looks set to beat Netflix (NFLX) to the punch in the Nordic nations of Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland with an on-demand streaming service of its original programming. The service should be up and running by the end of October, while Netflix's streaming service will debut sometime before the end of 2012. The streaming launches will mark the first time the two firms have battled directly in the same region with the same business model.
