TV Junkie: HBO GO Gets Bigger
HBO has announced Cox Communications as a major partner in the launch of its HBO GO service for HBO subscribers which will now begin online streaming of over 1600 titles, including all HBO-produced series, documentaries, and movies that HBO has the rights to. No word on if/when cable services Time-Warner will offer HBO GO and that's what we're waiting for, personally speaking, of course.
We're fans of MaximumFun.org, the LA-based institution that is the purveyor of "The Sound of Young America," "Jordan, Jesse, Go!," and the "Judge John Hodgman" (yes, that John Hodgman!) podcasts and syndicated radio segments. We particularly like the various TV comedians, writers, and performers who appear on their programs and reveal their sense of humor in a very laid-back format. If you haven't listened to any of MaximumFun.org's shows we recommend you give them a listen. If you are a listener, then you should be aware that they have just begun their 2 week fund drive and could use your support.
