That launched this morning. Similar to the HBO Go content that has all of the past series like Sopranos, etc available on your PC, tablet, or phone, now you an get those past episodes through your set top box via On Demand for both HBO and Cinemax.


Sex and the City is the one minor outlier because that show has some syndication rights on television that do not allow for all of the past episodes, though many are there.

Enjoy

This is GREAT news. HBO GO is an amazing product and I've been waiting for about a year and a half, it seems like, for that kind of full-content access on the big screen to make it to Directv and viewable on the big screen. :up:

Excellent. I'd wanted to start up with Boardwalk Empire again, but not everything was there. This is great news.

Thanks for the update!

This is AWESOME! Now I can finally see the first season of the Sopranos the way it was meant to be seen. :)

I can finally watch Deadwood & 6 Feet Under. Awesome news.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

After a quick look, it appears to be EVERY episode of their shows in HD (minus the SITC he mentioned).

WOW...This is very worth it.

I watched Deadwood for the first time about a year and a half ago when I began testing HBO GO, along with the entire run of The Sopranos. I think it's time to re-watch Deadwood. :)

That is good news. Is everything available in HD? Obviously I mean only the shows that originally aired in HD, I'm sure stuff like The Wire won't be in HD since they weren't in HD to begin with. Has the On Demand movie selection improved too?

Edit/

Looks like Sigma answered while I was posting. Great news, I knew this was supposedly in the works, but it's great to see it finally go live. Hopefully other channels soon start getting more content too.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

This is why I said the Roku "issue" would be soon be a non-issue. We knew this was coming.

I'd been using Roku and HBOGO via my UVerse sub for the free 3 month offer. By total coincidence, my free 3 months ended today so I canceled...I enjoyed using the Roku. This news makes me happy as hell about the timing.

What's wrong with it? Grab your remote and hit 1501. Done.

Almost. I believe Bill Maher are current season only, but those two are the only exceptions I am aware of.

Carnivale is missing also, but after checking on HBOGO I found that it isn't there either.

It was a very dark and quirky series that I would have liked to revisit.

Other than that, this is great news.

...you have had HBO Go for the iPad for a long time now. This is the same content as HBO Go via On Demand through your receiver.

Downloaded the first 2 episodes of Deadwood already. Was going to watch it on Netflix but this will work out better I think.
