An HBO Holiday Weekend Premierei How HBO Works How programs are scheduled is something we try to explain frequently in order to help you get maximum enjoyment out of your Home Box Office subscription. Movies and specials premiere on weekends —Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For viewing convenience, they are then shown again at different times on four or five occasions during the next four weeks. When shows premiere in the latter part of the month, their opening runs are carried over into the early part of the next month. In addition, we encore several of the most popular movies or specials from previous months. The schedule, which is divided into two segments—weekends and weekdays—includes page numbers. These refer to the location in the guide where you can find out more about the programs. Home Box Office reserves the right to make a schedule change or program substitution without notice.
