HBO has some of the best weekly shows on TV and those shows win all sorts of awards and are very popular. The catch for those without cable is that you can only view the HBO programs if you subscribe to the pay network or wait for the content to land on DVD.
HBO and Sony announced today that they are teaming up to offer premium HBO shows on the PS3 and the PSP for purchase. The HBO shows are offered in the HBO section of the PlayStation Store and will include many of the most popular shows on the network.
Available programs include True Blood season one and two, Big Love seasons one through three, Entourage seasons one and two, and Eastbound and Down season one. Multiple seasons of other shows like The Sopranos, Sex and the City, The Wire, Rome, and lots more are available. Exactly how much the content will cost wasn't announced. I would be more interested if you could rent the episodes for a reasonable price.
