HBO (Home Box Office) is an American premium cable television network, launched on November 8, 1972. As of January 2012, HBO's programming reaches 29 million subscribers in the United States, making it the second largest premium network in the U.S (behind Encore's programming of 33.2 million as of March 2012).

Original seriesEdit

Since 1977, HBO has produced original programming which includes dramas and comedies in addition to its slate of theatrical films. Most of these shows are intended for adults and often feature suggestive themes of high amounts of profanity, violence, and nudity - content that would be much more difficult to get on basic cable or over-the-air broadcast channels, for fear of losing sponsors.
