The BEST HBO series you should watch!

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!

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

Amazon Prime

Another way to enjoy HBO is by purchasing a monthly subscription through Amazon Prime Video. 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, no extra apps to install or sign-ins to navigate. It’s just there! Much like when you add it to your cable plan.

If you are an Amazon Prime member, click on the banner below to get a FREE 30-day trail of HBO. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

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