HBO Whacks Commercial Sopranos Celebrations
The Washington Post reported that HBO, a division of Time Warner, cut off its feed Sunday night to many in the Washington, DC area when it learned Saturday that a Georgetown restaurant tied a dinner promotion to the final episode of The Sopranos.
“Sopranos nights” had been a regular occurrence throughout Washington, DC bars and restaurants for years, as had been theme nights tied to other HBO series such as “Sex In the City.”
“This particular action has nothing to do with ‘The Sopranos,’ and the entire feed of HBO is just not allowed to be outside of residential areas,” HBO spokesman Jeff Cusson said Sunday night.
