There are many easy and affordable ways to watch HBO’s shows, films, and documentaries online without breaking the law or signing up for a traditional cable subscription.
Long flight? You can binge-watch an entire season of Curb Your Enthusiasm on your iPad. Craving some escapism? Rewatch Game of Thrones, His Dark Materials, or Westworld any day of the week, anywhere in the world. You can also view new shows like The Plot Against America, Euphoria, Run, The Outsider, My Brilliant Friend, Gentleman Jack, or Avenue 5 live as they air.
All you need is the time to watch and an internet connection.

The Difference Between HBO Go & HBO Now
HBO Go and HBO Now are basically two sides of the same coin. Both offer access to all previous seasons of all HBO series. They both offer access to HBO’s library of movies and documentaries. Both are available as apps on your favorite devices. The difference lies in how you subscribe to these services.
With HBO Go, you’re getting access to the app via a normal cable subscription. So if you’re a Comcast customer you’ll log into HBO Go with your Comcast credentials. HBO Now is a bit different. You don’t need a cable subscription at all! You can just sign up online and start watching HBO right then and there. Each one has its advantages but you’re not missing out by using either one. They’re both essentially the same app and content but with different ways of subscribing to HBO.
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! Or if you prefer, HBONow.com is the way to go if you don’t have cable.
Starting in the spring of 2020, the upcoming streaming service HBO MAX will also be an option to explore. A subscription to HBO MAX will allow viewers to watch HBO’s quality content in addition to a host of shows from other networks.
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. 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.

Other Ways to Live Stream HBO Content
“Free,” pirated streams of HBO shows and films are unauthorized and usually low resolution. They are more likely to get you in legal trouble or infect your computer with viruses than actually allow you to enjoy the show that you are trying to watch.
You don’t want to experience Game of Thrones or Boardwalk Empire on an unofficial, non-HD streaming site surrounded by crazy, russian-bride ads do you? What about John Oliver, Real Time with Bill Maher, Animals or Vice? You don’t want to taint that experience.
Give one of the legal, legit methods above a try instead of pirating HBO’s content.
