Today the first batch of shows are available on Amazon. Here's what's going to Amazon today: The SopranosThe WireDeadwoodRomeSix Feet UnderEastbound & DownEnlightened Flight of the ConchordsSome seasons of True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and TremeMiniseries including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, John Adams, Parade's End, and Angels in America Various comedy specials, documentaries, and moviesMore shows—specifically current and popular series like Girls and Veep—will be added over the next couple of years. But even without them now, this is an amazingly good deal for everyone. HBO gets to tap into thousands of Amazon Prime subscribers, who get a backdoor into HBO without having to tack it on their cable bills.
