    You guys used to have comprehensive listings of the best shows and movies on HBO. Do those lists no longer exist? I loved those. It would also be great if ever you could incorporate Showtime into your streaming guides (Crave TV streams everything that is on HBO and Showtime, and more I think...). Thanks!
