HBO says that The Sopranos, Eastbown & Down, Enlightened, Deadwood, Six Feet Under, Rome, The Wire, and Flight of the Conchords will be available. Select seasons of Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, and Treme will also be available on Amazon Prime, but it is not clear how the selection process is handled. Additionally the early seasons of Girls, The Newsroom, and Veep will be included but only once they have passed the three-year anniversary of their first airing. This means that True Detectives will remain a HBO Go exclusive until 2017.
