Remember about six months ago when HBO promised us you’d be able to have HBO streaming without a cable or satellite subscription? It’s finally here: HBO Now. All you need is Internet and an Apple device. Unfortunately for now, at least, you have to have an an Apple TV, iPad, or iPhone. You also must be in the US. (Sorry, Android and Roku people. We’ll keep waiting.)

If you sign up for it this month, you’ll get a 30-day free trial period. Shows available now include Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, True Blood, Deadwood, Sex and the City, The Sopranos, The WireDeadwood, Veep, and Entourage. You can also catch up on movies, like Jersey Boys, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Godzilla.

You can sign up at order.hbonow.com.
