I'm looking forwarding to moving back into my home soon and getting back my HBO ... and yes indeed, I think Maher is hysterical ... whether you agree with his political views or not, the man does know funny!
Mo when I had HBO I use to watch him with regularity. I dropped those premium channels in the summer months 2 years ago when I watch too much baseball to focus on anything else. After dropping them, I find I don't miss it much with the exception to Maher. Cable is too expensive, I dropped all premium channels and I still get a bill over $165/ month.
I have Comcast XFinity ... phone, internet and cable ... and I have all the movie channels ... expensive, but then again I don't go out to the movies, so I save money that way.
