    I have only watched HBO a handful of times in my life. Last time was a couple years ago in a hotel. It was boxing and it was very well done.

    I like hbo and am distancing myself from gerbil's opinion. Per usual.

    Apparently HBO bought the rights to it - to view it online you must sign up for a $15.00 per month web based service.

    Hey all you crazy HBO executives - I remember how you guys were part of the cable cabal that freakin' charged crazy high prices to view your sub-par drivel. It seems to me I can remember cable prices starting out at very low rates and then getting jacked all the way up to car payment levels because you're all a bunch of fat, wool covered pigs. I never did buy cable because of the criminally high rates but I've been enjoying my Netflix at only $9.99 per month. How you think your open sewer of garbage is worth more than Netflix is beyond my comprehension - but in case you are as slow and stupid as you are greedy let me be clear: I'LL NEVER PAY FOR YOUR SERVICES.

    DIE
    DIE
    DIE

    I hate your company - I hope the elevator fails and you fall to your deaths - I hope you OD on cocaine - I hope you all rot in a cold grave.

    ^---- This is what happens when you bend a customer base over for years. I hope your service fails and your kids starve in the streets. DIE DIE DIE.
    That was excellent. I'm all about a good imprecatory prayer.

    one thing, if you have the DVD netflix subscription you can get any movie, even those that are not available online because of things like HBO rights. If it was ever available for sale in the stores, you should be able to get it through Netflix DVD.

    Coward.
    Just like DE said you'd be...
    Actually YOU put Trump in the White House. He wouldn't have gotten 1% of the vote if it wasn't for the widespread spiritual and cultural devastation caused by progressive policies. There's no "this country" left with your immigration policies, your "allies" are worthless and even more suicidal than you are and democracy is a sick joke that I hope nobody ever thinks about repeating when the current order collapses. - Darth_Executor striking a conciliatory note in Civics 101

    There is only one thing on HBO that I want to watch and that is the new Westworld series. I hear it is very good.

    firstfloor,
    I find the best way to develop balanced commentary is to use thought experiments.
    For example, before I wrote the original post I spent about three hours imagining this issue from the perspective of an executive at HBO.

    My thoughts went something like this:
    I'm an obese, self-centered criminal who enjoys putting other people in helpless situations and then brutally taking advantage of them. As much as I'd enjoy running a Saw-esque operation in the pole barn out back our society frowns on homicidal behavior and I could end up in jail. Because of civil limitations I must recast my sadist dreams into something compatible with capitalism. I need to be able to jam customers, pay off Congress, and grow as rich as possible. I know... I'll run a cable outfit.

    ^-- None of that would have been possible unless I really imagined myself in their shoes.

    Try it sometime.
    It is a real eye opener.

    "Heaven offers nothing that the mercenary soul can desire. It is safe to tell the pure in heart that they shall see God, for only the pure in heart want to. There are rewards that do not sully motives. A man's love for a woman is not mercenary because he wants to marry her, nor his love for poetry mercenary because he wants to read it, nor his love of exercise less disinterested because he wants to run and leap and walk. Love, by definition, seeks to enjoy its object. C.S. Lewis
