HBO is also included in both the AT&T TV NOW PLUS and MAX packages.
Boardwalk Empire on Netflix
The short answer is: No, Boardwalk Empire and all other HBO programming is NOT on Netflix and probably won’t be for a long, long time. There has been some.. competition between HBO and Netflix in particular and the idea of Boardwalk Empire, one of HBO’s premiere series, making it’s way to the $9/month streaming service just doesn’t make sense for the Home Box Office however desperately Netflix and her subscribers wish it.
Boardwalk on Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes
HBO does offer its shows, including Boardwalk Empire on streaming and download services such as Play, iTunes and Prime but you’ll have to wait some time to get them. On iTunes and Google’s Play seasons tend to come out with the DVD and Blu-Ray discs ie one full season behind. Amazon Instant Video works similarly but Amazon Prime members do get access to older episodes of Boardwalk Empire for free! Check out your Amazon Prime account to see what’s available.
Older HBO Shows are Streaming on Amazon Prime
If you’re an Amazon Prime member and you’re trying to watch an older HBO show like The Sopranos or Sex and the City stop what you’re doing and head over there now because older HBO shows stream free with a Prime subscription. Boardwalk Empire is there in its entirety and you get a free month when you sign up so there’s really no excuse not to when you factor in the free shipping on Amazon stuff as well as the large streaming video library. Give it a try.
DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Discs
One sure-fire way to watch Boardwalk Empire anywhere you want is by picking up the show on DVD and Blu-Ray. We follow all of the release dates here if you’re interested. How does this let you watch Boardwalk Empire online or streaming? Well, HBO often includes Digital Download codes with all of their DVD/Blu-Ray combo packs. This lets you choose between iTunes, Google Play and other services to download the show in addition to owning the discs! This is a great deal for those who want to own a physical copy and also watch online or streaming anywhere they want.
The one downside here is that the DVD and Blu Ray discs usually release almost a full year after the season airs. Great for older series but not so great for those using this as their go-to method for watching HBO shows online.
HBO Go and HBO Now: The Best Way to Watch Boardwalk Empire
One of the easiest ways to stream Boardwalk Empire and binge-watch other shows that HBO has to offer is to subscribe to one of HBO’s online streaming services.
Access to the “HBO GO” app is included with a traditional HBO cable subscription, allowing you to watch your favorite shows, movies, and documentaries on an array of devices in addition to your television.
