HBO, coolest network on the planet, know brings HBO on Broadband! Our favorite network – HBO, is launching a new service called ‘HBO on Broadband’ on Tuesday in Milwaukee and Green Bay in the US of A. You’ll be able to watch Entourage (and maybe ‘The Wire‘ 😉 ) when you feel like it (…also called ‘torrents’?).

At this point you won’t be able to squish them on you ‘pod but rumors suggest that might change quickly. It is quite interesting to note the following:

Where do you get your dose of Entourage?

After a retrospective look at an article titled ‘Entourage’ may be the next big thing for HBO, I was intrigued in the comment that Doug Ellin made:

Doug Ellin - Creator of Entourage

Personally, I get my dosage from my paid-for-subscription of HBO, but I know a lot of friends who download the episodes off the net (downloading using software called ‘torrents’ i think…is that what Doug means by stealing?) as they don’t have access to HBO.

How do you get yours? And is it easy if you can’t get them by A. Watching HBO or B. Buying the DVD sets?
