HBO's intriguing — but not for the commitment-phobic — nightly series, In Treatment, isn't exactly an overnight sensation. The show's premiere last week got the lowest numbers for an HBO series premiere ever. But maybe it's not quite time to panic yet, considering all the other ways HBO is making In Treatment available to HBO subscribers and non-subscribers alike.
Personally, I've been TiVoing all the episodes and hoping to settle in for a long marathon sometime down the line. But I don't have to do that, at least for the first three weeks: HBO has made the first 15 episodes available as a podcast from the iTunes store. Those same 15 episodes are also streaming online for free. In both of those cases, the full week's worth of episodes becomes available every Monday, so you don't even have to check back several times to get them all.
There are also two-minute recaps of each episode available on the show's main site, and if you have HBO but don't want to tune in each night, they're all also up through HBO On Demand.
Have you been following In Treatment on TV? And do you think you'll try to watch it any of these other ways?
