    This is definitely off topic news, but it's so worthy of a "happy dance" that we just had to share it! HBO just announced their plans to offer stand alone service in 2015! Yes... that means that TV cable-cutters who only use broadband for internet and Netflix and/or Amazon Prime will now be able to get their Game of Thrones (and various other amazing HBO shows) fix too!

    Their new stand alone service will include HBO Go as well. It doesn't get much better than this for people who can't stand cable TV, but enjoy HBO's programming. Here's a quote from the HBO press release,

    Yay! This is a big move forward to the goal of being free to choose the right channel for your needs and to not have to be forced to pay for a bunch of stuff that you don't want! Cable cafeteria service for tv is the future.

    I use HBO Go on all my chromecasts, it is great! It will be awesome if those of us that have cut the cable cord will be able to choose only the networks we want.
