Amazon Prime members: You can start binge-watching HBO shows right now


In a groundbreaking exclusive deal that was announced last month, Amazon has just added a slew of classic HBO shows to its Instant Streaming Service — and Amazon Prime members can start binge-watching them right now.

The selections include:

* The entire series of dramas like The Sopranos, The Wire, Six Feet Under, and Deadwood

* Comedies like Eastbound & Down, Bored to Death, and Flight of the Conchords

* Select seasons of ongoing shows like Boardwalk Empire and True Blood

* Miniseries like Band of Brothers, The Pacific and John Adams

* Comedy specials featuring comedians including Lewis Black, Ellen DeGeneres, and Bill Maher

Of course, it still doesn't include Game of Thrones — so hang onto your roommate's uncle's HBO Go password.
