They do indeed suck. And, with too few exceptions, executives are dweebs. Yeah, HBO brought us some pretty fair content for a couple of decades, but it was mostly back in the day. They've since shot themselves in the foot with stupid content decisions (what to make; what not to make) and have lost their mojo as a provider of preemo content. Who needs HBO when there's Prime and Netflicks? Eff 'em.
