Amazon and HBO Teaming Up

Posted by - 07:29 AM on 04/23/14
Amazon and HBO have signed an agreement to bring many of the premium channel's shows to Amazons Prime's video service. Just gonna toss it out there: if you haven't seen The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and/or The Wire ... you're missing out.
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 keeping some popular content for itself.

I already have Prime and I've never had HBO so I'm looking forward to watching everything.

Yes, if you haven't watched The Wire, stop what you're doing right now and go watch it.

Full disclosure: I am that guy that's always telling people about The Wire.

Wow, that's huge. And I'm guessing HBO will keep "Game of Thrones" strictly on HBO Go for a long time after it wraps. "The Newsroom" should just be deleted from all HBO archives.

I think this will finally sway me to sign up for Prime.

No game of thrones, no care...they have something the people want and you can bet your money they keep it away from amazon in this deal.
