Original series or movies, content is content. Why does it make a difference? With hbo, you can download all the series if you have download access.

Not entirely sure what you are referring to here.  I was stating that HBO would probably have no issue with this idea based on the fact that D* PPV does not play the same movies that are currently on HBO.  Also, this would not effect HBO in the way of original series at all, as they are not shown through D* PPV.

I interpreted the discussion to include the premium channels on demand stuff. I see you did not. Maybe you are right. Not sure what the intent was.

lol I can see where the change happened.  Originally, from my understanding, we were talking about being able to have all the PPV channels unlocked throughout the month for one monthly cost.  Someone mentioned HBO or other premium networks wouldn't like that.  They would definitely be against it if it opened up the premium On Demand content but if it was just for PPV movies, I don't see the premium networks worrying about it.

FiOS offers all the premium channels (HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, TMC, Encore, Starz, and Epix) in one package for $40 a month. I picked up the package last year at 50% off ($20 per month for 12 months) when I called to cancel my HBO/Cinemax half-price package and sign up for HBO only. HBO by itself would have been $17 or $18.

 

FiOS also offers an amazing number of VOD programs, both free and from the premium channels.

Comcast also offers the full package from the premium networks for cheaper than D*.  But with HBO, Starz, Showtime and Cinemax from Comcast, you get 17 channels(from the last channel lineup I received from them) whereas D* gives you 47 channels with those networks.
