    "Yawn" —HBO Go

    Are you interested in accessing old options through an increasingly irrelevant medium?

  3. HBO Shows Will Finally Be Available Online to Non-HBO Subscribers, But There’s a Catch

    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. Edit: 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.

    Game of Thrones may not be the most watched show on television, but it's certainly the most pirated. It's set yet another record for being illegally downloaded online. HBO didn't seem to care much the last two times this happened, so will this time be any different?

    As you may have heard, or experienced yourself, the season four premiere of Game of Thrones caused HBO GO to keel over like a beheaded Ned Stark.

    Last night, the new season of that Chair Games show or whatever it's called premiered on HBO, but I was more excited about Mike Judge's Silicon Valley. If you missed the premiere thanks to HBO GO being a piece-of-garbage service, then you can watch the first episode right here.

  8. Things We Saw Today: Wow, I Didn’t Know There Are No Female Characters In Adventure Time!

    Things We Saw Today

    ...at least that's what you'd think if you looked at McDonalds' line of Adventure Time Happy Meal toys, which has only male characters and is marketed "for boys," while the Paul Frank monkeys are "for girls." Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, etc. must have been figments of my imagination this whole time. (Serious Eats)

  10. HBO GO Won’t Be Open to Non-Cable Subscribers Any Time Soon, Says Time Warner CEO. So Hold Onto Those Borrowed Passwords.

    We Can't Have Nice Things

    In late March HBO CEO Richard Plepler made my Game of Thrones-loving, non-cable having heart go pitter patter when he suggested HBO might, at some point, bundle their online streaming service HBO GO with Internet service, meaning that even if one doesn't get cable one could still pay to get HBO shows legally online. Now Time Warner's CEO has stepped in to say "Not so fast!" It was a nice dream while it lasted.
