Amazon have signed an exclusive deal that will bring HBO content to Amazon Prime customers. This will mark the first time that content from the American premium channel will be available for online streaming outside of its own HBO Go streaming service (which, as part of the deal, is coming to Amazon's Fire TV later this year).

It will also be the only way to enjoy their content online without having to also have a HBO Subscription through you're cable provider.

The first shows are set to arrive on Amazon Prime on May 21st, and the full list of shows included in the deal includes some of the networks most successful and iconic work, such as The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, and the early seasons of contemporary shows such as Boardwalk Empire, Veep, and Girls.

There's no mention of Game of Thrones anywhere in the announcements official press release (which you can read here), so it likely won't do anything to quell the record breaking piracy that's surrounding the shows ongoing fourth season. But this is just the long awaited first step into the future for one of old media's longest holdouts, and it can only mean good things are in the pipeline.
