inaugural opening ceremonies on HBO

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that HBO won the bid to broadcast the opening ceremonies of Obama's inauguration on January 18th. At first I was panicked, as I suffer from a premium channel deficiency. Have no fear, HBO is negotiating with a bunch of cable and satellite distributors to air the event - meaning it will be live and commercial free for free, which is pretty cool.

I don't know much about the opening ceremonies except that they take place at the Lincoln Memorial and Obama and Biden are expected to attend. There is entertainment and all that, but nothing has been announced as yet. Sounds like a good excuse to booze.
