Have you ever wondered where one might watch any HBO show online for free? Your time has come, HBO fan! Last year, HBO launched a new online program dedicated to making sure their subscribers were able to download and watch any HBO show at any time from nearly any online device. No, you aren’t hearing things. Full tv shows and movies are available to download right to your personal computing device at no additional cost to HBO cable subscribers!
And if that isn’t enough for you we’ve even heard rumors that HBO Go will soon be available on various televisions as built-in or downloadable software. HBO Go goes beyond even what Comcast’s On Demand network offers in terms of full series download availability. You can watch an entire season of Curb Your Enthusiasm on your iPad on a long plane flight or rewatch Game of Thrones season 1 and all you need is the time to watch and an internet connection. And it’s not just TV shows, you can even download and watch HBO movies via the HBO Go network.
Imagine riding on a bus and wanting to watch a full episode of Game of Thrones online. Before HBO Go, you’d most likely have to grab a torrent or get the digital version of the show by some other, less-legal method. But now, if you’re a current subscriber to HBO you can get those shows on the go absolutely free. Some of the programs even come with special features not available on television. Exclusive interactive features were recently deployed with the new season of Game of Thrones that are only available online. Personally, I end up watching most HBO programming on my home entertainment system but having HBO Go as a supplement for travel is a welcome addition and some people have no choice but to watch HBO shows online due to their busy schedules.
In the future we hope to see HBO offering an online-only version of HBO Go to non-subscribers so that cable-cutters are also able to access these wonderful shows. We’ve been advocating such a change for a while now in our various articles but for now, HBO can’t seem to shake some of the deals the currently have with cable operators. They’re most likely afraid of losing the business they already generate for them– their bread and butter if you will. HBO does sometimes offer premieres of new series online free to even non-subscribers such as they did with Girls and Veep recently. We hope this starts a trend that shows the Time-Warner owned cable company that people want online access to their programming.
Perhaps someday HBO Go will evolve into a product that anyone, anywhere can subscribe to for access to downloads of Game of Thrones, True Blood, The Newsroom and all of their other hit series. But for now you’ll still have to be a cable subscriber with a subscription to HBO to get free downloads of HBO series. We know that a subscription can cost up to 25 dollars per month but when you think about the access you get to past shows it might just be worth it.
HBO Go is the perfect way to watch HBO shows online for free in this brave new digital world. HBO is leading the way with this so-called Netflix-killer app that is taking the world by storm. Head over to HBOGo.com to register your HBO subscription today and start watching all of your favorite movies and series online now!
See? It’s pretty easy to watch Game of Thrones online with HBO Go. All you need is a subscription.
