$23 -$25 for HD DVR and MRV?
Why are we still paying a premium for HD?
Thats basicly the standard.
HBO, what $18 ??? Holy crap!
Maybe Roku, and Time warner can come to a deal and sell us HBO for less.
HBO already said no to that...for now....they don't want to get into a situation where they have to bill customers, have massive call centers to take care of customers, explode their marketing dollars 10X to market to customers, etc, etc. They rely on all those expenses from the providers they have deals with.
HBO is on record saying their product is worth $20 to $25...that's what they believe. On some systems, the price is $20 or more.
Now, HBO Nordic is going over the top in Scandanavia as a test, so anything is possible. Of course if they go that route in the USA, my guess is every distributor of HBO here might say "have fun". Will they be willing to jettison those revenues? Interesting times to be sure.
