Re: Stupid logic
And also because of the consistently rising cost of cable TV and the stagnant economic growth, what do you think the first thing to go in the cable package is?
It's the HBO subscription.
As for the people saying that it would complicate things to have programmers handle the delivery and servers, they've already been doing it for HBO GO. The only difference is to remove the authentication for the cable/satellite subscription and go to the account solely. They may need some server upgrades for capacity, and they may want to consider doing live streams of the HBO channels (a la WatchESPN, wouldn't that be sweet?), but technologically, there wouldn't be that many expanded costs associated with it as compared to the walled garden, IMO.
