One thing I don’t like about HBOGo is it doesn’t remember all the episodes you watch. This is very annoying for someone like me who has watched a bit of Veep, In Treatment, Ballers, Curb Your Enthusiasm and a few other shows. The show I watch most consistently is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver which doesn’t even save every show.
The two HBO shows I have flown through and the very fun Hung and the absolutely amazing and greatest television show of all time, The Wire. Both of those are on Amazon Prime. Well, I did run the Brink season 1 too. And I did run through Carnivale over a decade ago when we lived in New York.
I tried Hulu very briefly but the commercials drove us nuts, next.
Amazon Prime is the streaming service we have had the longest. It’s easily worth it just for the free shipping. Especially with my wife. Shopping at Amazon can be a lot easier than the store. I have flown through Mozart in the Jungle, we did run through Catastrophe season 1. Lanna gets Starz through it and enjoys a lot of movies. It’s also nice to be able to buy series and episodes. I’m a Anthony Bourdain fan for instance and I enjoyed watching some of Parts Unknown. This season I noticed we have that in demand on our limited cable. Lanna has bought 1 season of Supernatural, Doctor Who, Agents of SHIELD and a few others. This season we are catching up with Agents of SHIELD on Netflix.
But, honestly we easily watch Netflix the most. I have flown through House of Cards, we have flown through Grace and Frankie season 1, the first two seasons of Arrow, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and a few others. I also love watching documentaries and we both nap to David Attenborough. It also has the best search and predictive software.
And we used to have DISH and DVRs but they get wicked expensive. We have some limited cable with our very high speed internet 150mb. But, honestly have probably watched it more this fortnight with the Olympics then in months. I do sometimes nap to golf, especially after work on Sundays.
I enjoy having streaming, having to mute the commercials during the Olympics felt weird. As does how many of the commercials keep showing up over and over and over again.
