The story of an almost accidental company that became the biggest entertainment giant in the world. In 1973 Home Box Office was a small cable TV operation that Time, Inc. could not even sell. During the following years, HBO became Time's largest source of profit, and in 1987 will produce more movies than four of the seven major Hollywood studios.
