HBO Go (TWX) could be provided as a service option for broadband subscriptions, says HBO CEO Richard Pleper. This would give HBO, which already offers HBO Go on a standalone basis in Scandinavia, a way to sell subscriptions to cord-cutters without alienating pay-TV industry clients (since most of them double as ISPs). It would also back up Reed Hastings' assertion that HBO Go, rather than Amazon Prime or Hulu, is Netflix's (NFLX) biggest rival. (also)

    HBO Go does not support HDMI. This is a non-starter until they get that fixed.

    I wonder how this will go, NFLX tried but everyone said no. But HBO has a much better chance. I also wonder what Comcast would do, because they would prefer for you to keep the cable subscription. But if everyone else does it, they don't really have a choice.
