HBO programs used to be aired on the Movie Network prior to the establishment of HBO Canada which is now the exclusive home for HBO first run productions.

Canadian broadcast of Band of Brothers starts tonight.... don't recall it ever being shown in HD here yet.

And frankly this is the only thing that prevented me from cancelling Movie Central's progressively weaker and weaker HD package.

Good to watch as a lead-in to 'Pacific'

I'm in the middle of reading (Kindle version) "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa". Great book.

So far, I've recorded the "Making Of" show 5 times (HBO Canada HD and TMN HD) and every time something else has aired in its place.

I thought things would change today but nope. It's on again tonight on TMN. We'll see.

Time for one of us to email Astral. After the bug fiasco, at least we know they listen to us...

I'm up to 10 recordings so far and i'm 0 for 10.

I'm heading out on holidays. Perhaps I'll catch it on HBO when I'm away.

The Making of the Pacific is on YouYube if anyone wants to watch it. I just finished watching it and it looks really well done. And thanks to james99 for recommeding "With the Old Breed". I'm almost done it and it's a must read for anyone interested in the Second World War.

Has anybody actually had success recording 'Making of'?

I don't know if its just BTV that's screwing up the schedule, but I too have recorded duds many times now and am getting pretty pissed about it. I'd rather watch it in HD than on u-toob. Pretty bad form on somebody's part!

I emailed TMN about week ago regarding this screw up, and they haven't replied.
