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.
