If you’ve ever been part of a drug deal (and we’re using that phrase liberally) you know about the awkwardness of the whole thing. Buying an ounce of pot is difficult in the majority of states in America where it isn’t legal yet. HBO’s High Maintenance takes a hilarious web series focused on that interesting subject matter and gave it the budget and freedom to run with it all.
There are a few different ways to watch High Maintenance online and we’ll go through them below. Most of them aren’t free but we’ll give you the details you’ll need to stream High Maintenance on a whim.
Watch High Maintenance with HBO Go or HBO Now
The easiest and most official way to watch High Maintenance online is to sign up for HBO Now. It’s 15$ per month and it’s a standalone product so you don’t even need cable to use it. If you do have HBO through cable you’ll want to use your cable credentials to log in to HBO Go. It’s almost identical to HBO Now except it’s made for those of us with HBO in their cable package. Streaming for everyone!
Is High Maintenance on Amazon or Netflix? How about Hulu?
The short answer is: No. All of HBO’s content is kept exclusive to HBO including High Maintenance. They do have a deal with Amazon where older shows (typically shows 4-5 years old) are all on Prime so head there if you want to watch non-High Maintenance shows online and you’re already a Prime user.
High Maintenance is not on Netflix or Hulu for that matter. HBO shows will probably never end up on those platforms as they are bitter rivals in the entertainment world right now.
Sling has an HBO Add-on with Live High Maintenance
Sling is an alternative to cable that allows you access to channels like ESPN (think, Thursday Night Football), Bravo & HGTV (for the wife) as well as most others for about $20 per month. Explore it a bit and figure out if it’s the right option for you as a cord cutter without cable. Otherwise probably HBO Now is the best alternative.
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.
Avoid Illegally Pirating High Maintenance
We know you’re a poor millenial who can’t afford HBO just yet. But at least try to avoid catching a computer virus or getting a call from the FBI who want to know why you’re pirating so much content! Help support small shows like this one that don’t get the love they deserve or get cancelled because HBO thinks people aren’t watching them, when really they’re just stealing them.
