Joseph Parish for The Verge:

President Chris Albrecht announced yesterday that it would launch an application similar to HBO Go for various devices, likely including smartphones and tablets. Better yet, he reportedly indicated that customers might not even need a cable subscription to use the service. That would be a big deal for cord-cutters — networks, like HBO, typically require a cable subscription to stream their content.

Evidence continues to pile up supporting the death of the traditional television model.
