  7. 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.

    Just let us buy it from you legally, 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?

    Hear Me Roar

    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.

  14. 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.

  17. HBO CEO Teases Everyone With Talk of Bundling HBO Go With Internet Service

    If you want to have your Game of Thrones and watch it where you like, there's HBO Go, a streaming service not unlike Netflix -- except it isn't like Netflix, because you can have Netflix all by itself. To have HBO Go, you need to have HBO, the cable service. Well, that could potentially change here soon. Possibly. Maybe. Have we mentioned it's pretty tenuous?

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    CollegeHumor's Favorite Funny Videos

    Fellow Game of Thrones fans: You know how it goes. You want to watch this week's episode, but you don't get HBO! Or you don't have a TV, whatever. You could wait for an illegal download to show up and acquire it that way. (And many do—Game of Thrones was the most pirated show of 2012.) You could wait a few months until it comes out on DVD and marathon the whole season at once. (Does anyone actually do this?) Or you could, as in this video from CollegeHumor, just borrow someone else's HBO GO password. Easy peasy. Except when the password wasn't theirs to begin with. And further and further down the rabbit hole we go... (via: Laughing Squid) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  19. Game of Thrones Claims Most Pirated Show of Spring Crown

    It should come as no surprise that HBO's immensely popular television series, Game of Thrones, is also immensely popular with pirates. With nearly 4,000,000 downloads per episode, the show has taken the proverbial crown for the season as the most pirated show of this spring.

  20. Take My Money, HBO! Tells HBO How Much Money You’d Pay for a Standalone HBO Go

    Many of us can't afford or have chosen not to pay for cable, or even a television, but that doesn't stop us from watching our favorite shows. Even those of us who do own a TV and pay for cable, can't afford premium cable subscriptions on top of it, like Showtime to watch the surprisingly good Homeland, or HBO to watch damn near every show the Internet loves to discuss, from the geek friendly Game of Thrones, to the guilty pleasure True Blood, to the stellar Boardwalk Empire. We all know HBO is in a battle with Netflix, which is why its shows don't appear on the service, and is also one of the main reasons HBO's Internet streaming service HBO Go exists. Unfortunately, you can't subscribe to HBO Go without subscribing to HBO in full. That's where Take My Money, HBO! comes in, as it tells HBO how much you'd pay for a standalone HBO Go subscription.
