Tip: Tons of HBO shows are now available on Amazon Prime Instant

Windows 8

If you’ve been a loyal Netflix subscriber who never saw the need to get Amazon Prime for the video content, that may just change now. Just like Amazon promised a few weeks ago, a bunch of HBO shows are now available for free for Prime customers – shows that will never make it to Netflix because of the exclusivity deal signed by HBO with Amazon.

The initial round includes:

  • 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

And Amazon says that even more shows are on the way. (So there’s still hope for Game of Thrones!)

While Amazon doesn’t yet have a Prime Instant Video app for most Android devices, it is available on Google TV and Amazon’s Kindle lineup. It’s also available for iOS devices and a bunch of other streaming services like Roku.

Well, at least I know what I’ll be doing this summer…
