Maybe HBO doesn't care if you share your HBO Go log-in, but it definitely cares if you host public screenings. The New York Daily News reports that HBO sent an official letter to Brooklyn bar Videology, asking that the establishment stop showing Game of Thrones for patrons. The owners of the bar have said they're complying with the request. "As a pay subscription service, HBO should not be made available in public establishments," a spokesperson told the News. "When it does happen, it is of particular concern when there is an attempt to profit off the programming." Womp womp.
