They're saying that HBO is going the crazy ex-Girlfriend route with this split. Lol
I guess they are on Their Taylor Swift. The full report is yet to come out on yahoo but if true this would prove more serious than I imagined. Unfortunately I believe HBO will hurt themselves more so in the long run. You don't burn bridges.....

I'm seeing comments all over the place about people saying they're going to dump HBO and pick up Showtime. Shit getting real out here lol


I was actually thinking of dumping Showtime because their movies are so bad. HBO has better movies and shows, HBO is a better service overall. Showtime may have gotten the better boxing deal. But it's the crap on Showtime you have to go through just for boxing. Showtime was great for movies back in the mid 80's-90's. They lost several major movie contracts, and most of their stuff is B-Grade now. The costs are going up, but I get yearly discounts.

I agree, my cable bill is a bit under $200. And I have the big 4, if you can call the other two big lol. I like the shows for HBO but Showtime is coming up. As far as movies I'll watch Starz or Encore, hell..even Cinemax before Showtime. It's messed up but they get everybody else's left overs. Maybe that's why their so invested in boxing now, it's no secret that they need subscribers
