    are we sure about Tuff Money (Bani Negri) Season 1 coming to HBO Max on October 21, 2021? I've been checking and refreshing and it's still not there. This was a Romanian HBO Europe show that aired a year or two ago in Europe but hasn't made its way to the US yet (and apparently still hasn't?)

  • Cordcutter  

    Don’t mean to threadjack here, but where are the listings for Showtime??

  • BlackBarney  

    You guys used to have comprehensive listings of the best shows and movies on HBO. Do those lists no longer exist? I loved those. It would also be great if ever you could incorporate Showtime into your streaming guides (Crave TV streams everything that is on HBO and Showtime, and more I think...). Thanks!
