True Blood will fly with British Airways

Posted by Lynnpd On April - 3 - 2014

newssquare2STONEPlanning a trip to Bon Temps for your future? British Airways has teamed up with HBO for long-haul flights, with programmes such as Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Girls, True Detective, Looking and Curb Your Enthusiasm to be shown.

Richard D’Cruze, British Airways’ in-flight entertainment manager, said: “We’re excited to be the first airline in the UK to have a dedicated HBO channel, offering more entertainment options than ever before.

“We know that our customers value the opportunity to catch up on the latest TV and films during their trips. We’ve recently seen a trend for ‘binge-watching’ on flights, with customers viewing back-to-back episodes of a TV series to keep up to date or simply catch up. With so many popular programmes on HBO, we know this will be a real winner with our frequent fliers.”

A number of movies will also be shown on the channel.

Jennifer Bowen, senior vice president of international distribution, HBO, said: “British Airways is committed to offering their customers a pre-eminent entertainment experience. The HBO brand, and the high quality programming it immediately brings to mind, offers a valuable addition to their service. This deal also provides a great opportunity for those who have not yet seen the acclaimed programs, to experience a taste of what they’ve been missing.”

The news comes as British Airways celebrates its 40th anniversary under the British Airways branding, having taken the name in April 1974 following the merger of BOAC and BEA.

Stephen Moyer & Anna Paquin support “Slates for Sarah”

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 5 - 2014

Last week, HBO published the photo below of Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin showing their support for “Slates for Sarah.” I didn’t realize at the time, how horrific the story of Sarah’s death was until I read the article about it on “The Hollywood Reporter” today. I was just floored that this sort of thing could have happened and I just hope that it never happens again. I strongly suggest that you read the article by The Hollywood Reporter,” to learn more about what actually happened.

Please show your support by going to the Facebook page and clicking the LIKE button.

We’re glad that Steve and Anna too support Sarah and hope that something will be done to end unnecessary tragedies like this.

HBO denies rumor of True Blood movie

Posted by Shadaliza On January - 11 - 2014

5433009_true_blood_hbo_200True Blood’s seventh and final season is slated to air this summer, but it sounded like HBO might be trying to get a little more blood from the stone when star Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton, hinted that a feature film version of HBO’s vampire drama was forthcoming.

When asked by a reporter at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival at the premiere of Free Ride — a film Moyer produced with Anna Paquin, who also stars — what fans are supposed to do in the summer of 2015, when True Blood would traditionally air, the actor replied, “I’m not sure about the summer of 2015, but if things go the way I’m hoping, there will be something to watch in the summer of 2016. Which we’ll have an announcement about soon…ish. I cannot talk about it yet.” Watch the video here.

Naturally, this has led to lots of online speculation that Moyer was implying HBO had plans to release a True Blood movie, just like the network has done with 2008’s Sex and the City as well as the upcoming Entourage movie.

However, when reached for comment, HBO told BuzzFeed that the idea of a True Blood film is news to them. “Nothing at all to confirm,” a rep said. (At time of publication, Moyer’s rep did not have an official comment.)

Great new ways for fans to watch True Blood

Posted by Lynnpd On December - 9 - 2013

US and UK fans can now re-watch seasons of True Blood in great new ways. Check out these new possibilities for viewing below:

TV shows by American broadcaster and production company HBO, including Game of Thrones, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, are now available to purchase from the Google Play store in the UK. HBO is now going straight to customers in the UK, rather than distributing its content through Sky or Netflix, as it has often done in the past.

To begin with, the digital marketplace will stock the first three seasons of Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, the first six seasons of True Blood, the first two seasons of Girls and season one of Veep.

 

HBO GO VIA GOOGLE’S CHROMECAST

Both US and UK fans can take advantage of this option. If you have Google’s Chromecast, you can view HBOGO on your TV with the device.  With Chromecast, you can easily enjoy your favorite online entertainment on your HDTV—movies, TV shows, music, and more from Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO, Hulu Plus, Google Play Movies and Music, and Chrome. No more huddling around small screens and tiny speakers. Chromecast automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps and it just plugs into your TV. Get started in 3 easy steps: plug Chromecast into any HDTV, connect it to WiFi, then send videos and more from your smartphone, tablet or laptop to your TV with the press of a button.

Fans start petition to save True Blood

Posted by Shadaliza On September - 20 - 2013

The announcement that the seventh season of True Blood will be its last caused a shock wave among the fans on the Internet. Many fans however, including myself, feel that it has been an amazing ride and are grateful that True Blood did not get canceled but will receive a proper ending fitting for a TV show of this magnitude and popularity.

But not everybody is ready to say goodbye yet. A group of diehard Trubies has even started a petition. The group calls themselves “Don’t Cancel True Blood” and according to their spokesperson their main goal is to get enough signatures on the petition so that HBO would reconsider cancelling it so early. So far over 3,500 people have signed.
