HBO to Produce 50 Percent More Original Content This Year

HBO to Produce 50 Percent More Original Content This Year

There has been some debate amongst scientists as to whether the universe as a whole is expanding or contracting. But when it comes to the television universe, there’s absolutely no doubt that it’s expanding at a rapid pace.  Netflix is making original content, Hulu is making original content.  Hell, even Crackle wants in on this brave new world where anyone and a camera can make “content”.  Whether or not you see this as a good thing or a bad thing is up to you. HBO has traditionally stuck to a “quality over quantity” formula. But in a world of 8$ streaming apps with increasingly comparable content...

Send a raven! Send two ravens! Send all the ravens! UPDATE: HBO has announced that Game of Thrones Season 6 Will Premiere on April 24th, 2016! HBO rocked the television world today with a revelation that Game of Thrones would continue at least through a sixth season! Okay, so maybe you aren’t totally surprised by this announcement but it’s good to know that your favorite show will be on for at least two years, right? It’s been speculated that Game of Thrones will need at least seven, if not eight seasons to complete the journey but we’ll probably have to wait to get real confirmation on that front. When will Game of...

Are the WATCHMEN Coming To HBO?

Are the WATCHMEN Coming To HBO?

This writer is of the opinion that the whole Superhero genre has reached its saturation point, but then again I’m not a ‘geek.’ I was quite content with HBO setting itself above the rest and not going that route. Now, however, it appears the pay cabler is considering the realm of spandex clad do-gooders with an array of super abilities saving the world from evil. HBO is in preliminary talks with Zack Snyder, who directed the 2009 movie Watchmen, to explore whether the concept is doable for the network. In a brief statement HBO stated – “Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred but we have no additional...

Vinyl Series Premiere Date Revealed in First Full Trailer

Vinyl Series Premiere Date Revealed in First Full Trailer

Vinyl has been on our minds for over a year now. We’d called it the “Martin Scorsese Music Project” for quite some time until HBO finally revealed the name of the project and “Vinyl” seems to be extremely appropriate for this show. If you take the talents of Martin Scorsese, and spice it up with the brilliance of Winter and authenticity of Mick Jagger you have this show.   We’d been waiting for an official premiere date for Vinyl and we can now reveal that the show will air in January of 2016. This is a huge relief to HBO subscribers since the network has been without a proper drama series since True...

HBO Now is Available… Now

HBO Now is Available… Now

Today is one of the most important days in HBO’s history.  For decades now, HBO has been a premium cable channel, available via a traditional subscription and access to a coaxial cable in your living room wall.  A few years back HBO launched HBO Go, a streaming app that allows you to watch HBO shows on the go.  But there was just one problem: you still needed a traditional cable package from a corporation like Comcast, Time Warner Cable or DISH Network.  Not a problem for everyone but for some, it was everything. Effective immediately, the game has changed forever.  HBO Now, the new streaming service similar to HBO Go is available...

Geoge R.R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

Geoge R.R. Martin Planning A New HBO Series

George R. R. Martin is in collaboration with HBO to create a sci-fi drama work under the title of CAPTAIN COSMOS! At first I thought this a belated April Fool’s Day joke when the above bit of news came to our attention. Mr. Martin, creator of the “The Song Of Fire & Ice” series of fantasy novels, cannot even finish his current project let alone ramp up something new, so surely this wasn’t true. It wasn’t until we recalled that George was indeed in a first-look development deal with Home Box Office to create new material that it dawned on us that this could be fact. Another hint that he is carving time out to work on the new...
