    Who needs HBO with NetFlix variety?

    Yes, there are food network programs available on either Netflix or Hulu, on line for that matter.

    Live news coverage.  I'm going to get the HD antenna which offers all the local channels and more.

    As far as Breaking News, I find that on line when I feel like tuning in which lately isn't very often.  It's all violence and faux news these days.

    Between twitter, DailyKos, and democraticunderground, better coverage is available, imo.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      Netflix is mainly network shows and comedies, which I'd rather have something shoved in my eye than watch...

      HBO will not put its original content on an all-you-can-eat service.

      Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Newsroom, Treme, etc....  plus their documentaries.

      But I can get access to an HBO account until they get through their current provider contracts... their CEO has already hinted that they might be considering selling this to the public directly.

      •  You would really enjoy House of Cards (0+ / 0-)

        UK and US version.  NetFlix original.

        I've never been an HBO customer.

          I despised House of Cards... I made it about 2/3 of the way through the first season of the American version because I really wanted to like it and only about 4 or 5 episodes into the UK version.

          I live in DC and I couldn't get over how utterly and completely unrealistic it is.  After you spend years working in K Street lobbyist firms, the Hollywoodized hyper-scripted episode-packaged caricature of "Washington Power Politics" just looks silly.

            ... I'll likely eventually finish the US House of Cards.

            Not that I would know whether the UK version is more realistic, but that Ian Richardson is brilliant in his role.
