I would _gladly_ pay HBO directly (or Netflix) to get it the same night as Dish/Direct TV/Comcast/etc. I have Netflix, but it takes them several months to get them.

I don't think HBO has ever cut a deal with Netflix (and given their disdain for the online services it seems unlikely they ever will). You either have to buy their shows via iTunes or Amazon's digital video services (provided you're willing to wait for the latest episodes) or you can stream them with HBO Go if you are already paying them for their pay TV services or you can buy their overpriced Blu-ray/DVD copies when they finally decide to release them. Piracy is cheaper, easier and more convenient than any of those options.

Economics 101 - HBO limits the distribution so much demand skyrockets. Piracy meets the demand.

HBO is definitely leaving money on the table.
