It’s time to cleanse ourselves and confess all the subscriptions services we’re not paying for.
Obviously, Jon Stewart wasn’t done with television when he retired from The Daily Show. The recently bearded comedian will be returning to the screen after signing a four-year contract with HBO. Very interestingly, he’ll be focusing on short form—and very shareable—digital content.
Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY! That’s when Game of Thrones comes back, and you need somewhere to watch it. But wait! What if you don’t have cable or an HBO package? Luckily, you don’t need it anymore—these days, you can legally stream HBO over the internet and onto virtually any device out there. Here’s how.
Game of Thrones is back in just a few days—and without an Apple device or a cable subscription, you don’t have a place to watch it. Don’t panic. There’s a solution: Sling TV has HBO, too.
Thought Apple’s standalone HBO Now service was your only way to watch Game of Thrones sans cable? No more—HBO will be available on the Sling TV service by April 12th. It’ll set you back the same $15 a month, but you’ll need Sling TV’s core $20 TV package to qualify. It’s better than nothing! [Sling TV]
As far as Apple announcements go, today's "Spring Forward" event was decidedly lacking in big reveals. The only real curveball was Apple's reveal of a brand new MacBook—one that comes in both gold and space gray, no less. Still, there were some fun little surprises thrown in the mix.
HBO Go is finally available for Playstation 4 users, huzzah! Unless you have Comcast. Then you're shit out of luck, because the cable giant isn't supporting it.
Comcast subscribers will soon be able to access HBO Go and Showtime on their Roku according to a new FCC filing. We just don't know when.
Amazon just added the last piece necessary to make its Fire TV set-top-box an unstoppable beast: Now it's got HBO Go. (Updated with comment from Amazon and Comcast below.)
A year after the console's release, the Xbox One finally has its HBO Go app. We knew it was coming—just not when—and today it arrived. The PS4, on the other hand, is still out in the cold beyond The Wall.
Sometime next year, HBO is going to start offering HBO without a cable subscription. It's what we've been waiting for, and it means maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to finally cut the cord. The question remains as to how much that'll cost—will it really be much cheaper than a traditional cable package? Let's run some…
In the quest to entice us into their cord-tethered grasps, cable companies will come up with anything to win us over. But AT&T might have struck upon the first truly innovative deal: Broadband, plus HBO, and a year's subscription to Amazon Prime. For only $39 per month.
Last month Amazon and HBO announced a deal that would give Amazon Prime members access to HBO content without an HBO membership. Today the first batch of shows are available on Amazon.
HBO and Amazon just put a ring on it with a giant, multi-year deal that will put HBO originals on Amazon Prime exclusively. Woooooo! That means you don't need an HBO subscription to watch old episodes of everything from the Wire to Eastbound & Down. And in this game of everything-but-Game-of-Thrones, everyone wins;…
Amazon just announced an agreement that makes Prime Instant Video the only place you can watch HBO originals online without an HBO subscription. Starting May 21st, Prime members will get exclusive, unlimited streaming access to pretty much every HBO original you're interested in except Game of Thrones.
Last night, Game of Thrones fans flocked to HBO Go as soon as the season four premiere was available. They were met with error after error, taking to the internet to complain about the shoddy service. What they should have done instead? Actually subscribe to HBO. Crazy, I know.
