Just lost HBO...DAMN

Post by ericf4 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 2:00 pm

So all Sling and Dish customers lost HBO and Cinemax today...Fn stupid contracts.... Looks like they were fighting with ATT/Time Warner and couldn't come to terms....Now will have to move perhaps to Directtvnow etc....

just got an email from hulu yesterday that lifetime movie network (LMN for those in the know) will no longer be included in the standard package and will be a 7.99/mo upcharge. yeah, i'm thinking it's worth it...

where's my baby?
Help me find my baby!
someone stole my baby!
bring my baby back!

Seriously though - we've been pretty happy with youtubetv + whatever the wife and kids stream on their iPads.

directvnow has been mostly positive for me. had a couple of short outages early this year. but HBO is only a $5/mo add on, which is a big positive for me. plus most local channels are available inside the app.

I'll likely do that. I just don't like.the DVR is only 20 hours. How many hbo channels do you get? On sling i paid $15 for 1 hbo channel.

The last time I walked into our tv room and my wife was watching a Lifetime movie:

“So, she’s a succeaful romance novelist who can’t find true love, right?”

“Yup.”

“And that guy’s her soulmate, but neither of them know it yet?”

“Yup.”

“Cool.”

You can just pay HBO direct through their app with an HBO Now account.

I run DIRECTV NOW through my Apple TV, which has my Prime app and Netflix in it, and added HBO and Showtime to it, which also works well when I’m on the road.
