Season Four!!!

Spain
HBO has officially renewed GAME OF THRONES for a fourth season. (And I'm almost finished with the first draft of my script. No, sorry, not going to tell you which one it is).

Record ratings for our season three premiere, "Valar Dohaeris."

Also (sigh) record levels of piracy.

On other topics... no, no, Peter Dinklage is NOT being replaced by Warwick Davis in the role of Tyrion. That was just HBO's little April Fools joke. (I was so busy I forgot to make my own April Fools joke). So calm down, boys and girls. Peter is still with us.

I *want* to give HBO my money. I have no problem forking over a fair monthly amount to be able to watch GoT. But in order to give HBO money, I first have to give Time Warner MORE money for digital cable, something that was not necessary five years ago - I had HBO for a couple of months when I first moved here because they hadn't disconnected from the previous occupant. When I called Time Warner back when S1 was about to air, it would have taken my bill from ~$55 a month (basic expanded + internet) to about $95 a month. Forty bucks extra a month for three billing months? No. That's $120 for ONE SHOW (and a bunch of extra channels I'll never watch) - the DVDs only cost $25-$40.

I understand that HBO is firmly in bed with cable TV and they make way more money from bundling, but they really need to consider a la carte options if they want to put a dent in piracy. Even if it's only through HBO GO, I'd be happy to pay ~$15-20 a month directly to HBO to watch online and still buy the DVDs.

Satellite TV is a great option to cable.

I have DirecTV myself, and love it.
