Home Box Office
Home Box Office, or more commonly HBO for short, is a pay cable television
network in the United States, playing Hollywood movies, its own full-length
feature films and weekly series, including the very popular The Sopranos,
Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Arliss. HBO also
occasionally broadcasts boxing matches under the banner name HBO Boxing.
HBO is the original cable network to originate as a non-terrestrial
broadcast TV network. HBO went on the air in 1972 and was originally
transmitted via terrestrial microwave towers. In 1976, HBO became the first
TV network to broadcast its signals via satellite when it showed the
"Thrilla From Manila" boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. In
1986, HBO also became the first satellite network to encrypt its signal from
unauthorized viewing. HBO also was one of the first cable TV networks to
broadcast an HDTV version of its channel.
HBO is currently owned by AOL Time Warner.
