Hard Knocks follows an NFL team (a different one is chosen each year) as they go through pre-season training. This may sound boring but it’s really anything but. Rookies get cut, stars give it their all and a team comes together before the first big game. This year, as Hard Knocks celebrates its 20th year, the series follows the Dallas Cowboys. You can catch the five-episode season, which begins on Tuesday, August 10 (10:00-11:00pm ET) on HBO and HBO Max.
The best way to stream Hard Knocks, right off the top is HBO Max. Subscribe here:

Is Hard Knocks Streaming on Netflix or Hulu?
No. In fact no HBO program is on Netflix or Hulu at the moment. HBO’s Hard Knocks will probably never be on Netflix or Hulu because they’d need to square that deal with both the Home Box Office (a rival of both of those streaming services) as well as the NFL.

What About HBO Now & HBO Go?
Up until the summer of 2020, the apps HBO Now and Go both offered access to HBO’s library of TV series, movies, and documentaries. With the debut of HBO’s comprehensive new streaming service, HBO Max, HBO is retiring the HBO Go app. Those who wish to stream HBO’s library of content online without gaining access to HBO Max’s diverse offerings can still subscribe to HBO Now under its new name— HBO. This app can be installed on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
PURCHASE AND DOWNLOAD EPISODES OF Hard Knocks FROM AMAZON PRIME, GOOGLE PLAY, AND ITUNES
Fans can purchase and download episodes of the show from Amazon Prime, Google Play, and iTunes. However, there is usually a delay between an HBO show’s season finale and the show’s availability for purchase through such services.
Those who choose to buy episodes of the show or the complete season through iTunes, Amazon Prime, or Google Play will not be able to watch the show as it broadcasts live and may have to wait a few months before Hard Knocks becomes available for purchase.
Pirating Hard Knocks
We can’t recommend trying this because most of the HBO live streams are simply bogus. Not only are you bombarded with ads, but you’re also very likely to catch a virus when trying to pirate the Hard Knocks. All on a tiny screen with no High Definition, fuzzy sound, and a sinking feeling in your stomach that you just stole a product you love.
