On the 23rd, Amazon announced an exclusive deal with HBO, which brings many of HBO’s original series to the internet retailer’s Prime service. This marks the first time HBO content has been available online anywhere but HBO (legally, at least) and marks a huge coup in the streaming wars. So on May 21st, anyone with a Prime membership will have access to shows like The Wire and Rome, as well as earlier seasons of popular series like True Blood. No current content seems to be part of the deal; seasons must be at least three years old to be included on the streaming service.
