Seems like the only benefit is being able to talk to it.

Looking at it more, it's actually kind of crazy. Give up HBOgo and get ShowtimeAnytime. Why can roku have both but no one else.

Open source roots
No one cared about it
So they never locked it down
They never thought it would go anywhere

I think what eric is getting at is, no one thought roku would go anywhere so hbo and showtime gave them a low rate for a few years. But, hbo and showtime know apple and amazon have the money to pay up so they jack the rate and niether amazon or apple are willing to pay for both.

FWIW, Roku only supports HBOgo from some cable providers. i.e. I cannot get Comcast-sourced HBOgo on my Roku...which is ridiculous.

Yeah, we do something similar with WatchESPN. Only certain cable providers are willing to pay for that added benefit.
