The “Take My Money, HBO” campaign is officially under way.Just last night, we spotted Twitter users chiming in about how they want the cable network to turn its companion streaming service, HBO Go, into a standalone service that doesn’t require a TV subscription. 

It’s a sign of the times. People are sick of paying for cable they never use and want to stream everything on their smartphone and laptop instead. 

Not that we blame them—the average cost of a monthly cable subscription is $75, which over time could add up to thousands of wasted dollars.
