The Sopranos, The Wire, The Pacific, Generation Kill, Entourage, True Blood, Flight of the Conchords, Band of Brothers…and now Boardwalk Empire.

The list is endless!

Just why is HBO such an amazing TV institution?

BSKYB (part of News Corp) have recently signed a 150 million pound deal to have access to all the HBO archives and upcoming shows for the next 5 years. On that note BSKYB are currently spending 1.7 billion pounds on content this year in an effort to boost subscribers and to diversify away from sports. BSKYB are clearly incredibly powerful in the TV industry.
