    HBO is reportedly trying to get $250,000 in bitcoin to pay hackers who stole 'Game of Thrones' scripts

    HBO offered $250,000 as a "bounty payment" to a hacker who stole TV show scripts from the company, according to an email obtained by CNBC, but a source familiar with the situation said it was just a "delay tactic."

    'Game of Thrones Season 7 Pirated Over a Billion Times'

    The seventh season of Game of Thrones has brought tears and joy to HBO this summer. It was the most-viewed season thus far, with record-breaking TV ratings. But on the other hand, HBO and Game of Thrones were plagued by hacks, leaks, and piracy, of course.

According to the company, the latest season was pirated more than a billion times in total.

    The Deuce wraps up an impressive first season

    The acclaimed HBO series about the rise of the porn industry in 1970s Times Square wraps up tonight, and we suspect our TV editor, Erik Adams, will be sorry to see it go. The lowest grade he’s given an episode is a B, with most hovering around an A-. He says the show has even secured its place as “The Wire’s rightful heir,” which is high praise indeed. The 75-minute season-one finale (The Deuce has already been renewed for season two) sounds pretty all-encompassing...

It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.” Dinklage plays fan-favorite character Tyrion Lannister in the HBO mega-hit. Over the course of the show’s run, Tyrion has gone from simple Lannister royalty, to the Hand of the King for the reviled Joffrey Baratheon, to a patricidal fugitive, and now stands...

    HBO's Watchmen Series Receives a Working Title That's Close to Home

    HBO and Damon Lindelof’s forthcoming Watchmen television series might end up diverging from the comic book source material. However, the show’s newly revealed working title seems to indicate that the series isn’t straying too far from its roots. According to Production Weekly, the Watchmen series has received a working title of Brooklyn. This, of course, is quite fitting, as the events of the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal 1986 miniseries takes place primarily in New York City.

For 20 minutes, Oliver detailed the great economic growth that the country is enjoying as well as the rise of lovable president/possible emperor-for-life Xi Jinping. Unfortunately, as Oliver pointed out, this growth has come alongside a massive crackdown on dissenters, a worrying vilification of religious minorities, and the repeal of political safety measures that were put in place in response to the totalitarian policies of Mao Zedong.
