Here are a bunch of HBO graphics I just discovered on an old, OLD Beta tape - probably from 1980, since they movie on the tape, Airport 79: The Concorde, was released in 1979. This video begins with what looks like the HBO sign-on, followed by a movie preview, then the feature movie intro (one of many they used at that time), and the Rating. After the movie comes more previews and the HBO sign-off. What's REALLY interesting is that in this one video are both the old and new HBO logos, the older one being where the "O" overlapped the "B". Again, I'm guessing this is from 1980, but it may be slightly later.
