Amazon Instant Video scores HBO shows
The most compelling reason yet to sign up to Amazon’s on-demand video service, which is yet to launch in Australia is here: classic HBO shows. So that’s The Sopranos, Six Feet Under and The Wire, all available to watch any time free of charge. Newer HBO series, such as Girls, Veep and The Newsroom, are also promised, but you’ll have to wait for three years (which is, er, far from instant).
Obviously none of this is officially available Down Under, but, as everyone knows, there are plenty of ways around that. US$99 a year, amazon.com
