HE® Soundtrack Who? What? When? Why Has it occurred to you while enjoying movies, specials and sports on HBO that you are a vital link in a unique communications operation HBO is America’s largest pay television network as well as the largest user of domestic satellite transmission for nationally televised programming. Month after month, HBO presents movies unedited, uncensored—and uninterrupted!—exactly as they were shown in their original theatre release. Moreover, we schedule the same show a number of times each month, on different days, at different hours —unlike the commercial networks that present a program once, then re-run it months or often years later. This way you can see movies and specials when you want to see them, not when network advertisers or local commercial stations offer sponsored programming. HBO’s convenient, multiple scheduling helps you plan your viewing. You probably won’t want to watch everything, but you don’t have to miss a film because you have something else to do one night. And you can preview a show before turning it on for the family or friends. As a final plus, we often show the more popular programs again some months later in case you missed them the first time. HBO welcomes letters from subscribers. Please mail to: Ms. Susan Devon, HBO Customer Relations Dept., Time & Lite Building, Rockefeller Center, New York, N.Y. 10020 Home Box Office reserves the right to make a schedule change or program substitution without notice.
