the internet is serious business
Or, I should say, HBO shows will finally be available online legally
to non-HBO subscribers. Because, while it's technically illegal for someone who doesn't get HBO to log into someone else's HBO GO account, it's not like that ever stopped anyone. But HBO GO isn't the subject of this news. Nope. HBO's getting in bed with the Overlord of the Internet: Amazon.
This just in: According to Variety HBO's Amazon deal does not include Game of Thrones
. Ditto Entourage
, Curb Your Enthusiasm
, and Sex and the City
, which have other U.S. syndication deals. And "new and future shows," including True Detective
and Silicon Valley
, are excluded under the current deal as well. Thanks, HBO.
