HBO will now be $17.99/mo (up $2)

Congratulations, HBO. You have discovered the price point that will finally motivate me to call up and cancel my subscription to your network.

$17.99 for one channel? I haven't subscribed to movie channels in probably 15 years but that seems ridiculous.

That is insane. FOr the last year I have been getting all of the premium movie channels at $6.99 each for 6 months. When they expire I call up and tell them it is too expensive to have all of them and they renew my 6 months "deal." I really don't want any of the "exclusive" shows on those channels. Was keeping them around for the one or two movies that I want to see during the month but it just isn't worth it anymore.

Seems like I pick up more full length uncut movies on HDNet than I ever do on HBO, and HDNet is no extra fee with my Fios plan. Also seems like it was around this time last year that I got fed up enough with DirecTV that I bailed. Happy and saving $$ ever since, and this sure is no reason to go back!

chances are that is for at least 3 HBOs. You don't normally get 1 anymore with Digital cable.

In its early years, HBO was $7.95.

And if you take inflation into account that would be over $20 a month. No HD, no online access and just one channel.

We gave it up after the Sopranos and then when Big Love was done. I'd add it when the shows started and remove it when they were done. Worked well and we would usually be on some promo so it wasn't full price. There is nothing on HBO worth $18/mo.
