Somehow I think the (current) agreements HBO has made to the cable franchises expressly forbid HBO from marketing directly to the viewers. One hopeful sign is this could very well be HBOs first move toward building a more intamate DIRECT relationships with the cable subcribers and I'm willing to bet that this MIGHT be the first sign of cable tv exclusive channels doing an end run around the cable franchise and sell their channels to any and all customers.Wouldn't that be...
Say what you willl but the fact remains that HBO is still a huge player in the old guard entertainment industry and the mere thought that the seem to be 'GETTING IT' and trying to embrace this 'brave new world' of ours IS A REALLY GOOD THING. First off the whole idea that this will be available to me at NO ADDITIONAL COST other than my normal HBO monthly fee is SIMPLY UNHEARD OF and it seems to be out of the greedy hands of my cable provider who wouldn't think twice about...

Apple and oranges perhaps but the fact reamains, the OWNER of the content has the ULTIMATE say as to how it is to be sold and if they happen to make a choice you don't like it doesn't give anyone the right to just steal it instead.Look the band could tern around and say that from this point forward all songs will be sold in blocks of 11 and sorted alphabetically. SO ifvyou want to buy Wish You Were Here you'd have to buy the other 10 tracks that fall in before and or...
HE might be back?!?! Somehow I think Mr. Floyd or PINK to his dearest friends will some how find a way to carry on.
