   In today lesson , Marni  referred to the movie she saw on HBO . Does she mean that she saw it in the cinema or at home ? like is there a cable television? what is a cable television anyway? In our part of the world, we are not familiar with such concepts and this is why i find it hard to imagine what she is talking about . So, could you please tell me what she means precisely? thank you in advance

Good question! HBO is a special channel in the U.S. that you have to pay extra money for, and it shows a lot of films and special shows.

HBO is an abbreviation for "Home Box Office" a premium channel as Amy says.
