Finally, our days of freeloading are over. HBO — the magical network that airs Game of Thrones, Girls, and many, many more of our favorite series — had always forced fans of its shows to sign up for cable. But now Internet providers are offering packages that secretly offer full access to the HBO Go app without the cost of cable. Every series, documentary, and comedy special is available for streaming on demand with the HBO Go app. Hooray!

HBO still won't offer HBO Go as a stand-alone package, despite the fact that over 163K people signed the Take My Money, HBO petition within its first 48 hours on the web. But it is getting better. Amazon announced a major six-year deal with HBO to stream its hit shows on Amazon Prime, including True Blood and The Wire. These Internet bundles with HBO are also a step forward in watching the shows you want without the pricey cable packages.
