HBO Family

TVkeep > North America > USA > live

HBO Family is HBO's third (and only successful) venture at operating a family-oriented pay service, following the similarly formatted and short-lived mini-pay services Take 2 (in 1979) and Festival (in 1987).

Despite being a premium service, HBO Family has occasionally been offered on the basic tiers of select cable providers to temporarily replace local television stations removed as a consequence of carriage disputes; such instances include during Hearst Television's 2012 dispute with Time Warner Cable that resulted in TWC's associated Bright House Networks system in Tampa, Florida, substituting independent station WMOR-TV with HBO Family,and a dispute between Cox Communications and LIN TV in which the channel was used as a placeholder for Fox affiliate WVBT on Cox's Hampton Roads, Virginia system from January to February 2000.
