Tonight's the Night!

Winter is coming to HBO... tonight!

I think we can be pretty sure GAME OF THRONES will be better than SPRINGTIME FOR HITLER, at least. Fortunately, this show comes from Benioff and Weiss, not Bialystock and Bloom.

We're pretty excited here. (Even though I've already seen tonight's episode).

And remember -- HBO is free this weekend on most cable systems throughout the US. So even if you don't normally get HBO, if you have cable the chances are excellent that you can at least see tonight's premiere.

(After which, of course, we hope you'll all be signing up for HBO).

More a little later. I have to get back to Kong.

I cannot wait, Ser! I've quit cable forever and stream netflix through an Internet ready tv... one of the best home entertainment decisions I've ever made. I miss HBO, Skinemax, and Showtime as there's really no legal way to get these stations without signing up for cable's extortion racket. Luckily my parents live a couple miles away and get HBO.

But there's good news! i dont know if u've seen the advertisements for it (maybe someone here knows more) but ive been seeing a lot of Ads for HBO on demand NET PROGRAM (for 10 bucks). Sorta like netflix, but i'm assuming u get to watch the shows whenever u want. It might be something u wanna look into...

ok i know i saw something where u could pay for HBO GO on my ps3... but in your case it's free if u have a HBO subscription so you could ask your parents to get it and sign in under their account

You are incorrect, but cable company's sure as hell are not going to offer it to you or anyone with out your knowing about it. By Law we are required to allow you to purchase premium programing WITHOUT any other subscriptions. Meaning you can call up your cable company and ask for HBO ONLY! And that really does mean ONLY. If you subscribe to anything else they have the right to make you get any subscription services first before you can get said program.

However, If you tell them you want HBO, or any other PREMIUM package they have to allow you to get it with out any other subscription pre-requisites. The main problem you are going to have is the majority of front line employees may not even be aware of this fact and you may need to speak to a supervisor in order to get it set up. Good luck. Hope this helps many people.

FYI yes I work for a cable company.

You know i double checked and I may have been slightly wrong. You may have to subscribe to the basic local channels only, and then HBO, but no other subscriptions are required
