Inb4WheresTheInstantVideoAndroidApp. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s move forward with today’s story — HBO content has arrived in Amazon Instant Video. All episodes of some classic HBO series, and select episodes of newer series are being offered up to those opting to pay $99 per year for Amazon Prime. Here’s the full slate of shows being made available:

  • All seasons of revered classics such as The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Rome and Six Feet Under, and of recent favorites such as Eastbound & Down, Enlightened and Flight of the Conchords
  • Select seasons of current series such as True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and Treme
  • Epic miniseries, including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, John Adams, Parade’s End and Angels in America
  • Hit original movies like Mary and Martha, Temple Grandin and You Don’t Know Jack
  • Hilarious original comedy specials from Louis CK, Ellen DeGeneres, Lewis Black and Bill Maher
  • Pedigreed documentaries including When the Levees Broke, Ghosts of Abu Ghraib and the Autopsy and Iceman series

And the buck won’t stop there. More series and episodes are bound to become available in the future (remember, Amazon can only get content three years after its original air date) so dig in for now, and stay tuned for the rest. Kindle Fire, iPad, Amazon Fire TV and web users definitely have reason to celebrate. Everyone else? Well, there’s always HBO Go.
