HBO Is Considering Partnering with ISPs to Bundle HBO GO With Internet Service
Seriously though, $10-15/month looks a lot more reasonable when it’s not added on top of tv package that’s already $40-50 too expensive for the 5 channels you actually watch.

It’s at least better than some alternatives, like making ads look like stories.

The proposal is bad for consumers, and bad for business — unless you’re one of those telecom monopolies. A coalition of tech businesses tears apart this noxious legislation:
It will thwart public broadband initiatives, stifle economic growth, prevent the creation or retention of thousands of jobs, and diminish quality of life in North Carolina. In particular, it will hurt the private sector by undermining public-private partnerships, hamstringing our ability to sell our goods and services, interfering with workforce development, and stifling creativity and
