HBO has announced that, starting tomorrow, a substantive list of shows and documentaries in their library will be streamable for free through the HBO Go and HBO Now apps.

Six Feet Under (5 Seasons)
The Sopranos (7 Seasons)
Succession (2 Seasons)

I’ve seen a lot of Netflix trailers. Most of them simply show clips from the upcoming season or series debut. A few of them get clever and do something original, but it’s rarely memorable. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Netflix trailer that made me go, “I HAVE to
Good news for fans of former DC Universe programs that were dumped onto HBO Max — those programs seem to be holding up well against the competition. During today’s DC FanDome event, WB announced both Doom Patrol and Titans have been given fourth season renewals. The premise for Doom Patrol
