HBO Co-President Eric Kessler told a gathering of industry boffins this morning in New York that there is no chance his company will make shows like True Blood or The Wire available to digital non-subscribers. — from a paidContent story posted this morning
Really, Mr. Kessler? I canceled my Comcast cable (including HBO) about a year ago, reducing my monthly bill to $66.95 from $203. (I’m still paying for high-speed Internet.) I opened the HBO GO app on my iPad2 seconds ago and — guess what? — both True Blood and The Wire available to me. (I’m able to watch Bored to Death, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Treme, and just about other series you offer, too.) Go Cord Cutters!
