HBO and Amazon sign exclusive agreement for HBO content, no GoT

In an announcement sure to thrill absolutely no one, current Amazon subscribers will be able to start watching Exclusive HBO content may 21st on Amazon Video on Demand (aka Amazon Prime). What’s really notable about this, though, is that HBO has pretty much put up a giant middle finger to every GoT fan out there, insisting on holding onto content that’s less than three years old in order to “generate new subscribers.”

This screams to me like a band-aid solution to the hemorrhaging that’s occurring in the cable/satellite world as more and more people go online and are cutting the bills. Oh, HBO, will you never learn?

HBO headed to iPad and mobile in about six months

Even though HBO has been playing coy with Netflix for a while, HBO co-president Eric Kessler let it slip that they’re working to bring HBO Go to iPad and mobile devices “within six months”.

Kessler mentioned that the HBO mobile service would be free to current subscribers, but didn’t mention any sort of separate pricing if you want HBO Go alone, so it’s not clear if that will be an option. Even if it is, it doesn’t mean that cable is going anywhere soon. Time Warner Cable also recently announced that it will be rolling out an iPad app of it’s own very soon. Tablets, not TVs… It’s the future!
