A whopping 9 for the UK!

Why can't UK have HBO GO? Surely a way to increase install base AND reduce piracy of certain programmes...

But what about Twitter or Vine already being worldwide? I don't understand that?!

NowTV but no Sky?! Sky News but no Sky Sports?

I wouldn't be surprised if HBO Go being available in the UK would cause friction with Sky, over the amount they pay to have HBO content exclusively on Sky Atlantic.
