Bite The Hand That Feeds You

We've talked about Slingbox a few times here before, and how it enables people to enjoy their content in places other than their living rooms. You might think that would be a good thing for content providers - that rather than missing their favorite program, they might be able to catch it on their laptop or mobile device. After all, "your content your way" seems to be the guiding principle that holds true despite all the change in our industry. Evidently, that's not how HBO feels. I wonder when the old guard will start to warm up to the notion that ceding a bit of control does not necessarily equate to giving up profits.
