Gdkitty: can you elaborate?

 

I just noticed that HBO Canada is replaying The Sopranos from season 1 on, starting August 6. It's a pretty heavy schedule though, two episodes per day you need a good PVR.

Thanks guys.

 

I've done some digging... HBO Canada dropped it so it would apply to all providers not just Rogers. HOWEVER... My info says the date screwup is on Rogers not HBO (as I suspected ).

The licensing issue had caused HBO Canada to change the summer schedule for the Sopranos. Unfortunatley Season 2 will not air in August after all. So for those of who were into S1 or S2, out of luck unless you have Netflix.

Netflix doesn't carry HBO original content in the US or Canadian sites so people are still out.

Hello TrueNorth10


Netflix is not steaming or showing original HBO shows.. reason as HBO stopped providing them the DVDS as something was going on. So in the end like Roy_Baty said, people are still .

Sorry. I don't have Netflix and assumed.

 

Don't understand the players allowing this to happen. Kind of pushes folks to consider Torrent, no?

 

And it doesn't leave me with any confidence to begin any ROD series when they could be rempoved at any time.

 

In the Atlantic, ROD including TMN, HBO and Superchannel continue to be a bloody mess. Totally incoherent with episodes missing, misfiled and incomplete. I'll be dropping these services soon as a result.

Agreed. Lately ROD in the NB has become like a neglected sibling of Ontario. Quite disappointing.
