I swear, I think or write about something and suddenly it’s everywhere!
Take My Money, HBO is a new website where you can type in a dollar amount that you would be willing to pay per month for a standalone subscription service for HBO Go. You have to have a Twitter account for it to work.
The network has already responded saying, and I’m paraphrasing here, dream on suckahs! They say they would lose money this way.
Maybe, maybe not. You have to look at how many people would cancel their cable subscription and opt for HBO Go (which, presumably, would cost far less than the HBO bundle you get with cable) versus how many new people would pick up the Internet only option.
Me? I’d actually be willing to pay up to $20 a month for it. Quality programming with a great back catalog? That’s worth paying close to what we pay Netflix in our house.
Sadly, HBO just isn’t hip enough.
Speaking of hip enough, I keep tossing around the idea about creating a Twitter to coincide with my blog- mostly so I can post stuff I don’t really want to expound on but still want to share.
Also, I’m working on a post about Deanna Troi! 😮 exciting, I know!
