Amazon to bring HBO on instant video
Amazon has signed an extensive, exclusive multi-year agreement with HBO to bring many of its premium shows to Amazon Prime members. That means for the first time ever you will be able to legally stream HBO’s content on Amazon’s set-top boxes without a cable subscription.
Starting May 21st Amazon will stream channel’s greatest shows including The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and The Wire to Amazon Prime Instant Video. The deal also includes “early” seasons of Boardwalk Empire and True Blood. Newer shows like Girls, The Newsroom and Veep will eventually be made available to Prime subscribers, but not until three years after they’ve first aired on HBO. And other hits like Game of Thrones aren’t even mentioned as part of the deal, so HBO may be holding at least some popular content away from Amazon’s on-demand streaming.
It’s a good deal for HBO which is no doubt walking away with big money but its a great deal for Amazon as it has made a good premium shows portfolio for premium shows in front of its competitor the Big Red Netflix.
But still at this time the shows are almost an year old so legally speaking you gonna have to pay for cable for the latest episodes.
