Taking care of Me, TV

“It’s not tv, it’s HBO.”

HBO series you MUST watch on HBO NOW or Amazon Prime.

HBO series

You know I love tv! One of my favorite channels is HBO. HBO has been producing killer content for close to 20 years now. They changed the game in regards to tv comedy and drama. Not every one grew up with it as part of their cable package, but today it is easier than ever to get HBO programing right to your tv without a cable or satellite tv package.


“HBO NOW is the standalone streaming service that gives you all of HBO—no TV package required.” To get access to past favorites as well as current blockbuster series, you simply go to HBONOW.com to sign up for a free month, then 14.99 a month after, which you can cancel anytime. You can watch tv series, movies, documentaries, stand-up comedy, and sports! You can stream through your smart tv, game console, phone or tablet, and computer. They make it so easy!

Another way to enjoy HBO is by purchasing a monthly subscription through Amazon Prime Video or SlingTV. It works the same way as HBO NOW. A free 30 day trial, and 14.99/month after the trial and cancel at anytime. What I love most about this option is it magically appears on your Prime Video or Slingtv, no extra apps to install or sign-ins to navigate. It’s just there! Much like when you add it to your cable plan.

Don’t confuse HBO NOW with HBO GO. HBO GO is an app for HBO subscribers who have traditional cable packages.


Did you know their are some entire series available on Amazon Prime right not that don’t require a subscription?! Yeah. Me neither! Even though I have been a prime member for close to year now. Massive tv addict fail.

Westworld . . . . The Comeback . . . .

HBO NOW is a standalone streaming service. For a small price each month, you can rewatch an old favorite or find a new HBO series to binge. Don't miss the HBO shows you can watch for free with your Amazon Prime subscription!!
