HBO is illustrating poor intellignece, commonsense
HBO is illustrating poor intelligence, commonsense. Our current culture is to timeshift programming because in this day of economics its better time-management for our households and lives. If HBO were to win such a restrictive measure, I'd simply not subscriber to HBO. This would be a win-win for two premium content providers. HBO doesn't have to worry about me (I'm not buying HBO anymore), and another premium content provider get's my business (HBO competitor wins).
Corporate positions based on sales/marketing/legal types just make companies like HOB look dumb. HBO = Dumbo Network.
