HBO is one of the channels I do subscribe to because of their original programs. Game of Thrones looks promising, and I'll be watching the entire series.
I'm a bit fortunate in that my wife also loves Sci-Fi & fantasy, so she's looking forward to it as well.
Side note - I've turned my wife on to Dr. Wilson's books, but her English isn't to the point of being able to read the original versions, just the Japanese translations. But she's already hooked.
I'm also preparing my daughter for her initiation into the Adversary/Jack series.
