The Joys of Vertical Integration

As the summary points out, HBO is owned by Time Warner. There is no way they will ever allow for any access to HBO that bypasses a cable or satellite provider because that will be one less reason to purchase the cable TV service offered by Time Warner Cable.

Time Warner Cable was spun-off from Time Warner. It's a separate company now.

TWC was very late to receive HBO GO.

That could be, but who owns the stock and sits on the boards.

You need to look into the stake holders before you can claim they are separate entities.

Thats like saying our congress is separate from corporations and yet you look at their career funding and their politics you will see the stake holders are the corportations, thus they are one in the same.

While I don't know who the major stake holders for either are they do seem to be considerably more split than the supposedly separate Viacom and CBS.
