Today’s links want you to binge watch, I think you should just marathon. Also, as an aside, there’s a link here from Vice and while I’m not a huge fan of the site, this article is actually quite interest.

I would be interested in HBO if they included TBS, TNT and TCM content — except for two things. The first is that, as of launch, it will only work on Apple device (which means I can’t watch it on my computer, tablet or TV) and it costs $14.99 a month — which I find to be a ripoff. Sure, I’d like to get the content, but I can get two difference services (Hulu+ and Netflix) for only a couple of bucks more. That’s not to say that I don’t pay for other services, I do (Dramafever and, at some point, I’ll start paying for SoompiTV again), I’m just saying that $14.99/month is way too much (even Prime’s $99/year is cheaper, when you break it down). C’mon, HBO, make it cheaper, you won’t regret it.
