    HBO has my Fav shows "The Sopranos,Curb,Deadwood ect
    yet watching their (and Cinemax)many channels makes
    me sick,with all the cropped films they show,
    and they only have one HD channel which I belive they
    crop 2.35:1 films
    Why do people put up with this?

    oh Yeah...The Sopranos

    I agree; they should offer a choice. They could run widescreen films on HBO2 and Cinemax2.

    Drives me nuts that they play their widescreen original series in 4:3 when they replay them on HBO2.

    HBO is no different from nearly 99% of other cable channels that almost exclusively run pan and scan movies. I don't see why anyone would expect them to mend their ways and play movies in their OAR on their HD channel.

    Guys, please discuss television programming here in the correct area, not in Software/Film and Documentary.

    I've noticed that Showtime has been getting a lot better at playing films in their OAR. It does suck that HBO still hasn't gotten on the bandwagon yet. Considering how much it costs to subscribe to HBO you would think that they would treat their films better.

    This crappi, er, um, I mean cropping phenominon is the major contributing factor as to why I dumped HBO. Sure, they had a couple of my favorite shows but that alone wasn't worth the money to keep it, plus, I can easily catch those shows on DVD.
