    Now i just wish HBO would offer HBOGo on a stand alone subscription service without having to get ripped off by Big Cable.

    You just have to have Time Warner as your cable provider. When you log into HBOGo, it routs you over to your cable provider and you log in through them.

    I'm kind of happy that they don't offer you a basic subscription service and instead force you to purchase a rip-off like cable...

    Makes it that much easier to know HBO is an ****** company, doesn't deserve my $, and I hope they go belly up for being greedy :D

    As I recall, Showtime is doing the same thing now too. Pity, really. I'd be more than happy to spend the money for quality shows, rather than the crap that's on regular cable.

    HBO and Showtime could make an absolute killing by just selling subscriptions to their content online and bypassing the cable providers. They would take all of the profit, and people would sign up in droves. I would pay up to $20 a month for each service and cancel cable altogether.

    Your absolutely right!! Cable providers charge up to 25 dollars for premium channels. Hbo can charge, let's say 9.99 a month, and they would still make a killing!!
