Netflix is more popular than HBO. We have the numbers to prove it.

  • 29.2M the number of subscribers Netflix has in the U.S., according to the service’s latest numbers released Monday. In the first three months of 2013, they added two million subscribers in the States and another million abroad — clearly “House of Cards” fans — and returned to profitability after some down quarters. (Side note: Remember Qwikster?)
  • 28.7M the number of subscribers HBO has, which as you might note is a smaller number than the Netflix number we listed above. That’s the first time that’s happened. Anyone want to give an over/under on how many subscribers Netflix will gain from “Arrested Development”? source

HBO’s corporate site is stuck in 2001.

The site is a total of 596 pixels wide, which implies it was designed for 640x480 screens. The average website is 960 pixels wide these days. Shockingly, the site doesn’t use responsive design.

The whole idea that there’s a lot of people out there that want to drop multichannel TV, and just have a Netflix or an HBO — that’s not right. Look for the data, you won’t find them.
Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes • Once again shooting down any chance of a web-only HBO GO service, following an inquiry by a Barclay’s Capital analyst during Time Warner’s earnings call. Bewkes told investors that the 7 million additional subscribers to HBO and Cinemax in the last 6 months was proof that there was still an extremely large market for cable-exclusivity. “There are tens of millions of homes with multichannel TV… [that] aren’t currently subscribing to HBO,” said Bewkes, “That’s the opportunity.” source (viafollow)

To answer your question, no, John McCain was not a fan of his portrayal in “Game Change,” and watched a Phoenix Coyotes game instead last night. “I don’t use coarse language very often,” McCain said of the HBO film. “I have a larger vocabulary than that.”

Three conversation-starting moments from HBO’s “Game Change”

  • oneAides realize early on that Sarah Palin, John McCain’s running mate, will have to learn a lot about history and current events to keep up in the public spotlight. When asked if she needed to take a break, she declined, saying “this is flippin’ awesome!”
  • two “I am not your puppet! You have ruined my reputation! I am ruined in Alaska,” Palin said in a meltdown over the phone due to when Nicole Wallace, a campaign press guru, pushed a series of talking points on the vice-presidential candidate.
  • three Near the end of the campaign, when Palin was a “loose cannon” and had a “swelling ego,” she told McCain: “We have to win this thing — I so don’t wanna go back to Alaska!” Despite this, Palin returned to her job for nearly a year after the election. source

» Sure to stir presidential emotions: The made-for-TV movie regarding the “rise of Sarah Palin” airs March 10. Though HBO claimed the movie is a “balanced portrayal” of events, Palin’s Super PAC has already labeled the movie “fact change.” Which may be true. ”Game Change” may have taken some dramatic liberties from the book, but you’ll be the judge of that.

Bill Maher Says GOP Is “Dividing America”: During last night’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’, the host lambasted Republicans for taking a divisive approach to politics. Saying the current crop of GOP candidates could save Americans time by simply disclosing “which parts of America they don’t hate”, Maher pointed out that members of the GOP regularly denigrate ”East Coast Elites and San Francisco Liberals” — among other groups — while simultaneously accusing the President of dividing the country.
