@Kurt subtitles are the textual description of audio for people who have hearing problems or don't speak the language the programme is filmed in, HBO is a TV channel (amongst other things). –  DumbNic Nov 2 '13 at 18:43

Closest match appears to be Nexa Bold, according to WhatTheFont.

Thanks so much. –  Jose Carlos Alfaro Nov 2 '13 at 18:30
The 'que' looks spot on but the F and e are slightly different. Very close though, good match. +1 –  DumbNic Nov 2 '13 at 18:36
@JoseCarlosAlfaro - No Problem welcome to GD! –  ckpepper02 Nov 2 '13 at 18:43
@Dominic - Thanks! –  ckpepper02 Nov 2 '13 at 18:43
@JoseCarlosAlfaro I don't think this answer is right...see the comment in my answer. Also, check out Nexa's 'g' glyph, very different than what's in the screenshot. –  Brendan Nov 4 '13 at 21:15

Looks like a jagged, maybe extended, maybe bold Arial to me:

screenshot of the text in question set in Arial

The proportions are right, the 'a' looks a lot like an Arial 'a', the end of the 'r' seems to slant a bit just like Arial, and Arial is a really common font.

It does kinda look like Arial with a custom weight/stroke, I just don't know.. –  DumbNic Nov 4 '13 at 20:58
Subtitles are not exactly known for typographic excellence, or for being all that modern-looking! :P Nexa Bold is too modern-looking (no older than 2008 AFAICT) for an area of the TV that always feels like it's straight out of the early 90s (plus, the 'g' glyph is very different). –  Brendan Nov 4 '13 at 21:13
