Is Red Shoe Diaries / Beverly Hills Bordello on there?

Nice app but I prefer the model HBO is going for where you can get a sub without the cable company.

Yeah, definitely. That will always be the more appealing option.

All companies will be building that approach in the future.

Alot of these companies are watching what HBO does first since it's basically the big dog in that regard.

It also depends on the pricing of HBO Go. I think $10 a month is good. It needs to be near Netflix pricing if it wants to avoid a backlash.

Adding HBO to a normal subscription is like $11 or $12 on average. But since HBO doesn't have to pay money to the provider, they can take the $10 freely with no fuss.

I really hope HBO doesn't get greedy and ruin it for everyone. Like I said, companies watch HBO and if they set a bad precedent, we're all screwed.
