SATURDAY, MAY 21 (8:00-10:15 p.m.). Bryan Cranston (four-time Emmy winner for “Breaking Bad”) reprises his Tony Award-winning role for the HBO Films presentation, which is directed by Jay Roach (“Trumbo”; Emmy winner for HBO’s “Game Change” and “Recount”) from a screenplay by Robert Schenkkan (Pulitzer Prize winner for “The Kentucky Cycle”; two-time Emmy nominee and Writers Guild Award winner for HBO’s “The Pacific”), who has adapted his Tony Award-winning play of the same name.

“All the Way” was not just LBJ’s campaign slogan, but also captured the do-or-die mentality of all the players on the political battlefield. To what lengths would they go? What lines – political, legal and moral – were they prepared to cross? And at what cost? Each character in the film wrestles with these questions, and many are surprised by the personal discoveries they make.
Stream All the Way Online with HBO Go or HBO Now
The best way to get HBO content online or streaming is to sign up for HBO Now for about $15 a month. No cable subscription is required and you can watch All the Way online right as it airs (east coast time, which might actually be better than live streaming for PST folks). There’s a 30 day free trial so if you just want All the Way then you can cancel afterward (but you doubt you will).
HBO Go comes with your cable package that includes HBO and works basically the same way. Download the app or visit the official HBO Go website to stream All the Way there for free with your subscription.
Watch All the Way Live Online with Sling TV
Sling TV also offers an HBO subscription as part of their normal package. It’s the same cost but you might want to consider bundling it with some of the other channels they offer like ESPN, HGTV and Fox Sports. All the Way, will of course be available live on Sling with your HBO subscription. There are also rumors that you’ll get access to HBO Go with your Sling subscription (same login) at some point so that’s quite convenient.
You can sign up or explore the service more here. There’s a 7-Day free trial so this might be a nice alternative if you just want to give it a chance.
Watch All the Way the Old Fashioned Way
If you can’t get any of the above methods to work, or you live internationally you can always subscribe to HBO the old fashioned way– via cable subscription. Yeah, sometimes the price gouge you. Yes, you might pay a little more in the long run. But the security of knowing that your favorite HBO shows will be on your television with no additional effort might be worth it to you.
One way or another: Tune in to All the Way on HBO this Saturday at 8PM.
