In late April, Amazon announced that it had acquired streaming rights to several older HBO shows, free for subscribers to the Amazon Prime service.
On Wednesday morning, those shows became available to stream on Amazon’s streaming service, Prime Instant Video.
Any paying Amazon Prime member can now instantly stream selected HBO programming online. Here are some of the titles with entire seasons online:
• The Sopranos
• The Wire
• Six Feet Under
• Eastbound & Down
• Flight of the Conchords
Select seasons of current series are available for these:
• True Blood
• Boardwalk Empire
There’s also a nice archive of original comedy specials from big names like Louis C.K. and Ellen DeGeneres, along with powerful documentaries like When the Levees Broke and Ghosts of Abu Ghraib.
