HBO Wants No Recording of Shows—Ever


Looks like HBO is trying to use a broadcast flag to ban us from recording any of its programming on our DVRs. The company has recently filed with the FCC, saying its shows—and all "Subscription Video On Demand" services—should be labeled as "Copy Never." This means simply, if enacted, that we could never record its content on anything—not even your old, analog VCR.

Come on HBO, don't be such a downer. We pay for your services, we love your programming, if we want to record an episode of The Sopranos, please don't take that away. You make some good money on us, so don't get so greedy.
