HBO shows start arriving in Amazon Instant Video, just as promised

Amazon Instant Video on an iPhone 5s

The first wave of HBO shows on Amazon Instant Video just went live, including big-name shows like The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, The Wire, Deadwood, Six Feet Under, Big Love, and Rome. Prime subscribers are getting access to a whole bunch of other great shows that will never be coming to Netflix, as Amazon has locked down HBO as an exclusive as far as online-only streaming services go. HBO Go will be coming to the Fire TV later this year. And while Amazon still doesn't have an Instant Video app for Android, they mercifully do make one an Amazon Instant Video app for iPhone and iPad

Here's a full list of the TV shows, movies, comedies, and documentaries from HBO Go now available via Amazon:

  • The Sopranos
  • The Wire
  • Deadwood
  • Rome
  • Six Feet Under
  • Eastbound & Down
  • Enlightened
  • Flight of the Conchords
  • True Blood
  • Boardwalk Empire
  • Treme
  • Band of Brothers
  • The Pacific
  • John Adams
  • Parade's End
  • Angels in America
  • Mary and Martha
  • Temple Grandin
  • You Don't Know Jack
  • Louis CK
  • Ellen DeGeneres
  • Lewis Black
  • Bill Maher
  • When the Levees Broke
  • Ghosts of Abu Ghraib
  • Autopsy
  • Iceman

Amazon says this is just the first wave, so we're obviously eager to see what else they release in the near future. How many of you guys use Amazon Instant Video? For those that don't, would shows like these get you to subscribe? How about switch from Netflix altogether?

HBO shows start arriving in Amazon Instant Video, just as promised


I am hoping "From the Earth to the Moon" shows up. I remember it when it came out, and I feel like it was a really great mini series.

This addition is really nice. Gets around a need for HBO Go only subscriptions. But the biggest downside is no Native Apple TV app.

After I really looked what I use multmedia for, I found that a good 90% is watching movies, and series. Local news I get from news apps. I have the HBO app, but you have to have Comcast in my area, and I am so ready to cut the cable. I have just been waiting to buy a decent HDMI
TV, then the Apple TV, but been waiting to see what Apple is going to do next. When I am not watching multimedia, I am doing music, so like I said it is time to cut the cable.

Interesting yes. I have Netflix and hbo go though, so not yet enough to make me pay amazon too.
