If you try to cancel your basic cable on the day HBO begins streaming its streaming service in 2015, beware that you will be on the phone for a VERY long time.

HBO Go is about to be available without cable/satellite subscriptions next year. So I'm super pumped about canceling everything but HBO

Well, actually... Looks like this guy is holding out a little longer:

We don't know the cost, when shows will be aired, or even if it'll resemble anything like HBO Go, yet everyone's apparently canceling cable.
