They could keep their prestige stuff on their cable channels and go with more of a Netflix model on the streaming service. HBO is already more expensive per month than Netflix, he just need to expand their consumer base.

It would also help to quit making trash like Westworld.

The writers are incapable of telling a linear storyline bc “there’s no there there” so they rely on narrative trickery with the alternate timelines.

This type of storytelling may work for Jonah Nolan’s brother’s movies but when applied to a TV show it falls flat.

A good example of a show in the Sci-fi genre that deals in alternate timelines/time travel is Dark on Netflix. But that show has substance, a sense of place and much better drawn characters.

I read that Netflix brass stated they need to grow faster before HBO figures out how to become Netflix.

Westworld is far from trash. Itís soundtrack alone is gold.

We can agree to disagree. I watched the fist 2 seasons and have decided to bail for the reasons I stated above.

The show is very expensive to make, (FWIW)critics don't like it (it definitely does matter to HBO since they are in search of awards and prestige) and ratings are declining. This is certainly not what HBO was hoping to get from such a big swing. The same can also be said for Vinyl, but at least that show wasn't crazy expensive. And HBO had the good sense to pull the plug on Vinyl after the first season.

Lately HBO has been hitting home runs on their limited release shows - Big Little Lies, The Night Of, True Detective S1, etc. Sharp Objects premiere episode was fantastic and looks to be another hit.

However, HBO has been putting out less than stellar drama series - Westworld, Vinyl, Here and Now, etc.

The Deuce is pretty good and Succession may be okay. Both have been renewed for 2nd season.

I will say season 2 was a step back from season 1, IMO.

GoT is the crown jewel right now, but multiple years between seasons isnít a winning strategy.

GoT is great. Hate the long break and hate that it's ending.

Curious about the prequel series but not expecting to be anything close to as good as the original.
