HBO programming available on Amazon Prime Instant Video As of yesterday, Amazon's partnership with HBO officially began in earnest, offering great collections of older streaming content to Prime members.
HBO has made older shows available, as well as newer shows and current shows as long as they have been off the air for three years.

Among the shows available now are full series of The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Rome, Six Feet Under, Eastbound & Down, Enlightened, Flight of The Conchords, Treme and Band of Brothers. Initial seasons of True Blood and others will be available later in the year.

Amazon Prime costs $99 per year and offers free 2-day shipping on millions of items and the free Instant Video streaming catalog.

Most notably, the deal is an exclusive for Amazon, leaving rivals like Netflix out in the cold. Amazon is said to have paid upwards of $300 million for the content.

I have been rewatching Sopranos on my roku since it became available. Just as good a show as I remembered.

I find it a bit boring. It seems one big dramatic thing happens per episode and the rest is just filler. Just started watching it. On the last season.

The last season was ok. You have to get in from the beginning imo. It's like any soap opera as far as pacing, it just happens to be a soap about mobsters.
