HBO Is Replying to 3-Year-Old Tweets From People Who Wanted HBO Now Back Then

Better late than never

A delayed response, but a welcome one.

HBO has taken the time to reply to tweets from 2012 this week from people who wanted a standalone HBO subscription service back then—something that's finally about to happen with the forthcoming HBO Now.

The network appears to have responded to 13 old tweets, all from the same month—June 2012—when the comical hashtag #takemymoneyHBO was circulating among people practically begging for an HBO Now-like option.

HBO asked those 13 people for a Twitter follow so they can DM back and forth, presumably about finally taking said money off their hands.

HBO Now still doesn't have a launch date, though it's believed to be imminent. The company was eyeing early April, CEO Richard Plepler said at the announcement of the service on March 9 during an Apple event.

The cord-cutter-friendly streaming service will debut for $14.99 a month and be available at first only on Apple hardware.
