I just used HBO's "Contact Us" form to let them know how I feel about:
- Their disrespect for the proper aspect ratio of films,
- Their unwillingness to compete directly with other premium movie services that prefer OAR,
- The fact that they are alienating subscribers and forcing them to turn to Blu-Ray rentals/purchases to see movies properly, and
- Their lack of recognition of the acceptance of OAR films by consumers (and in the case of people on this thread, the embrace of OAR films).
Of course, my feedback probably went into the void. If it didn't, at the very least it will go way over the heads of the goons in charge of movie programming at HBO.
As for an OAR sighting, 'The Great Race' on HDNet Movies earlier this evening was quite dandy, although that's cheating a bit since HDNM is typically OAR.
