Why isn't Talking Funny on HBO Canada?

Email from HBO Canada:

Dear Kenton,

I would like to thank you for your e-mail.  Here at HBO Canada, it is always a pleasure to hear from our subscribers and to address any questions or concerns that you may have.

Unfortunately, "Talking Funny" is no longer on our current schedule.

We were in talks with the producers of "Talking Funny" a few months back, and we were confident that he had acquired the broadcast rights to the comedy special. We were informed late last month that the rights were no longer available and we had to immediately remove it from our schedule. Although we have removed all mention of "Talking Funny" from our website, it is still reflected in Movie Entertainment magazine. Movie Entertainment magazine is put to press 2 months early, so unfortunately it was too late to remove the listing.

We apologize for any disappointment or confusion this may have caused you. Regardless, I have forwarded your comments to our Programming department for review.

Thank you for taking the time to e-mail us.  If you have any further questions, concerns, or comments regarding The Movie Network, please feel free to contact us by e-mail or toll free at 1-877-426-5551.  A Customer Care Representative is available to take your call Monday through Friday from 9am to 9pm EST, and Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm EST.

  1. Wow it's so refreshing to see a big company be so open and honest. I do however hope Canadians get to see the show soon. I love Louis C.K. and the previews look like the comedians are so relaxed and hilarious.

  2. I guess the only thing to do is download it of the internet,
