HBO Go Wants To Fight Netflix For Streaming Supremacy

A lot of streaming video services have tried to compete with Netflix, but again and again, the problem that comes up is that you have to have a cable subscription, which is a bit like demanding cars be sold with some horseshoes in the trunk. It’s difficult to see how HBO Go, a service built to, well, stream content from a cable channel, wouldn’t have this requirement, although HBO itself is surprisingly cool with not being tied to a cable subscription. – Dan Seitz,UPROXX
