HBO has removed all of its erotic adult movies and television series from its vast entertainment library.
According to a report from the LA Times, HBO decided to remove its late-night programming after it became part of the AT&T family back in June. This means that long-running series like Real Sex and Taxicab Confessions will no longer air on any of HBO’s channels or streaming services.
An HBO representative informed the LA Times that the decision was made due to the declining viewership of the premium network’s late-night offerings:
“Over the past several years HBO has been winding down its late-night adult fare. While we’re greatly ramping up our other original program offerings, there hasn’t been a strong demand for this kind of adult programming, perhaps because it’s easily available elsewhere.”
This change in programming does not mean that HBO will turn into a family-friendly entertainment sanctuary, as most of the network’s highly-acclaimed original series like Game of Thrones, Sharp Objects, and The Deuce feature strong language and explicit sexual content.
