Genre shows have been popular with young adults over the past year, with HBO’s “True Blood” and AMC’s “The Walking Dead” often beating their broadcast competition in adults 18-49.

    HBO likes to do things like that, base everything of the premiere. HBO has done a great job with the series so far, but they have nipped it a bit from the book, shortening things here and there. They have also done an amazing job on HBO GO with their interactive site for Game of Thorns as well. Working for DISH for a number of years I have seen the trend of providers and distributors to give subscriber’s more alternative options to watch shows. DISH online now has HBO and MAX GO on the site, and Game of Thrones also streams there as well.
