At this page I write a lot about how you can watch HBO Now online from all across the world, but maybe you are wondering if there is a way in which you can watch HBO USA live online. In other words, you want to watch the live stream just as you would watch HBO in front of a TV in the USA.
This is in another words not TV and Video on demand, this is a simple live stream. The answer to the question is yes, but it is not something you can do on the HBO website. If you want to watch HBO live online then you will need to visit sling.tv, a service which includes lots of other services as well, but once you have signed up for their services and included HBO in you package you will be able to watch the HBO live stream online from wherever you are in the world.
It is though important to emphasize that using sling.tv you can now watch an episode already broadcasted of True Detective or see other films available in the library, as you can do with HBO Now. In other words sling.tv is only useful for those who want to see the actual live stream.
Is it worth it?
Is it worth spending lots of dollars a month to be able to watch the HBO live stream? I would for sure say no, as the programs and films become available on HBO Now just a few minutes after they are broadcasted, and thus you can watch them in calmness and in peace whenever you want to, and there is no stress at all. And, it is also much cheaper.
So, decide for yourself, but I would for sure just sign up for HBO Now instead.
