Bye-bye HBO, Hello NetFlix (and STARZ)

yarbiedoll and I have been kicking around the idea of replacing HBO with NetFlix for a little while now. Today, I went ahead and called the cable company to cancel our HBO service:
drmellow: I'd like to cancel HBO.
Cable Company: OK. [click-click-click] Your HBO service is cancelled as of today. Did you know we are running a new special now?
drmellow: No, what is it?
Cable Company: You can get six months of STARZ for free.
drmellow: Completely free?
Cable Company: Yes.
drmellow: OK, I'll take it. I'm going to have to call you guys up more often to cancel service.
Cable Company: [laughs]
As soon as I hung up, I put an appointment in my calendar to cancel my STARZ subscription on November 1. Hey, free cable.

Then, I surfed over to NetFlix to set up our account over there. I've been wanting to do the NetFlix for about five years now, when mlsmithjr first told me about it. I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot more than I enjoy HBO, and I enjoy HBO a lot.
