Streaming in August on HBO Now

Those who love movies and TV shows probably know why HBO is considered to be one of the best premium cable and satellite television networks in the United States.

It all started in 1972 when this network was founded in Pennsylvania.  It is interesting to know that when this network started the media didn’t pay much attention to it because there were many similar networks in the previous two decades who have started in the same way, but they were soon closed. However, HBO was different. Their management and their team were determined to make a difference and they eventually did that. They have managed to expand nationwide and what made HBO different that the rest was the constant investment in innovation.

HBO History

The 21st century is not different and HBO is now present not only on TVs, but also on the Internet through their HBO Now streaming service. However, one thing remains the same – this is an American network and people outside the US cannot watch their great programs.

This comedy TV show started this June, so it is a brand new show with some well known actors like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who is actually the main character. He plays a retired athlete who wants to be part of the mentoring process of current and retired athletes. We all know that Johnson has filmed few comedy movies which were very popular, so it is no surprise why this TV show on HBO has got the attention of thousands of viewers. This August we will see at least four episodes from Ballers.

True Detective

A lot of articles and reviews have been written about this popular TV show that belongs to Crime/Mystery genre. The first season was a huge success making it one of the most popular TV shows aired on HBO ever. McConaughey and Harrelson were a great team, but the second season comes with a completely changed cast. Now we can enjoy the acting skills of Colin Farell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn. The story is different, but judging by the first reviews, the second season is equally (if not better) good as the first one. The final two episodes of the second season will be aired in August on HBO. Read our previous article on how to watch True Detective on HBO Now outside US.
