Select HBO Programming Begins Streaming on Amazon Today

If ever there was a day to binge watch entire seasons of quality television, today would be that day. Amazon has made good on its promise to bring select HBO programming to Prime Instant Video, which means subscribers to Amazon Prime can now watch award-winning shows like The Wire, The Sopranos, and Deadwood at no additional charge. 

Amazon’s arrangement with HBO extends beyond shows, though. The deal will also see HBO’s catalog of movies, mini-series, and documentaries join Amazon’s streaming library.

From the press release, here is a list of what you can expect:

  • All seasons of revered classics such as The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Rome and Six Feet Under, and of recent favorites such as Eastbound & Down, Enlightened and Flight of the Conchords
  • Select seasons of current series such as True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and Treme
  • Epic miniseries, including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, John Adams, Parade’s End and Angels in America
  • Hit original movies like Mary and Martha, Temple Grandin and You Don’t Know Jack
  • Hilarious original comedy specials from Louis CK, Ellen DeGeneres, Lewis Black and Bill Maher
  • Pedigreed documentaries including When the Levees Broke, Ghosts of Abu Ghraib and the Autopsy and Iceman series

Over the course of the multi-year agreement, Amazon states it will add more seasons and shows like Girls and The Newsroom. For the Fire TV owners out there, that should definitely hold you over until HBO Go makes its way to your platform.

All I can say is, Amazon Prime is an amazing value. If you were on the fence about subscribing, is the HBO deal enough to get you to sign up?

    I was in class the other day when I heard another student griping that anyone with Amazon Prime is just lazy and can’t wait longer than 2 days for shipping. He claimed it was a waste of money. lmao I really wanted to set him straight on how it is one of the best values out there, especially if you are on the student pricing. I’ve had my Prime for about 10 months and I don’t see myself cancelling for years. The convenience of 2 day shipping is worth it alone, and if you buy online often then it pays for itself pretty quick. The streaming is great, up to par with Netflix in my opinion. I just wish they had more Kindle books I am interested to borrow, so far I’ve had to buy my ebooks.

    I ended up just telling the guy he was nuts and if he tried the trial of Prime he’d probably change his mind by the end of it. :p

        Yeah, that site looks like a good fast way to get a visit from the local swat team and a fat fine.

        • Ray

          Yeah OK buddy been using the site for years there are 100s out there. It’s streaming not downloading.

      • Chris Hannan

        The ads on that site are ridiculous.

        stream-tv dot me FTW for TV shows.

        • Ray

          What ads?

          • Chris Hannan

            No ad block on iOS.

    • rawr

      Read the books, you will be 2 seasons ahead.

  • Tone

    F*ck Amazon. I hate the fact they won’t release an android app to take advantage of their video service. We all know the reason as to why they won’t release it.

    • The Narrator

      Yeah, oh well. My TV plays it, My PS4 plays it, My Fire plays it, my Blu Ray plays it.

      • Kevin

        Too bad you can’t take your TV or PS4 when you’re traveling.

        • rawr

          Says you.

    • bibbyboi

      What’s the reason?

      • Tone

        Their crappy Kindle

    • TopXKiller

      cash rules everything around me dolla dolla bill y’all

  • Taylor Abrahamson

    No Android market app, no chromecast support. NO THANKS. I’ll just keep using HBOgo, you know, the real deal, with all the things and chromecast support.

    • The Narrator

      Paying for HBO is overrated.

      • Taylor Abrahamson

        Luckily, I don’t pay, my friend does. But you’re right, I wouldn’t “pay” for HBO

    • Ethan Besbris

      “Android Market.” DOWNVOTE!

      • Taylor Abrahamson

        Lol! You caught me. I still tend to call it that in my head.

        • jabarri2

          haha was gonna mention as well, havent heard it as the market is so long!

  • paulternate

    If you haven’t yet seen The Wire, now is the time. Just do it already.

    • clobberedchina

      Will do. I saw the first few episodes when it was new but I lost track of it somehow. To put something just a little bit tech in this post, thank heaven for my old Roku box. Cheap and easy, just like I like ’em. 😉

    • Aaron C

      And Deadwood. Between The Wire, Deadwood and True Detective, I think HBO has three of the best all-time TV shows ever.

      • The Narrator

        I’m already experiencing True Detective withdrawals. MOAR NEED MOAR!

    • Adebisi’s Tiny Hat

      I just watched Oz and that was not a pleasant experience.

    • Sporttster

      Nothing beats Band of Brothers, imo…..

  • Raven65

    Is there any way to watch it on an Android tablet yet (other than a Kindle Fire)? If not, suck it Amazon. GIVE US AN AMAZON INSTANT VIDEO APP!!!

    • No AIV No problem

      Use the Firefox browser (with the last version of Flash Player installed).
      It won’t be scaled perfectly but it works enough to enjoy your viewing.

      • gambit07

        Unfortunately that does not work as far as I can tell, at least not on 4.4.2

        • Oliver Chen

          dolphin browser works with 4.4.2

          • gambit07

            What version of flash are you using? I get a blank black screen when trying to play in Dolphin or Firefox. This is with the hacked 11.1 flash and desktop site requested, and the plugin turned on in dolphin browser.

          • gambit07

            Yeah, it must be ROM specific unfortunately. It seems it works for some and not for others, and I’m an other :/

        • No AIV No problem

          It still works, just watched GI Joe Retaliation on my Nexus 7 2013.
          You have to check the “Request Desktop Site” box in Firefox.

          • gambit07

            No go for me in dolphin and Firefox, just gives me a black screen

    • Sporttster

      I use Puffin browser when I need flash…..works pretty good….

  • The Narrator

    Highly recommend Six Feet Under and The Wire.
