This is just one of those things that pops into your head and you just roll with it, ya’ know? But is this any more likely than an elaborate trap system made to protect the idol itself? Who can say, really.
It’s neat that starting next year you’ll be able to get HBOGO without a cable subscription. I’ve been waiting for them to make that announcement for a couple years now. As a cable-free home most of the television we consume is a little dated (our big three right now are Twin Peaks, Bones, and Star Trek: Voyager) but we manage to see a lot of the important stuff with friends.
I’m curious to see how long it will be until the old cable model is reformed into something that is internet-based. Things are moving so quickly now, thanks to the webs, that it’s tough to get a bead on change. Time will tell.
