In an effort to boost its revenue, Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) made a strategic move late last year by removing some notable titles from its streaming platform, HBO Max. While this change disappointed some subscribers, it opened up an opportunity for Netflix viewers to indulge in a selection of iconic HBO series.
Shows like Westworld and The Nevers bid farewell to HBO Max but found new homes on free, ad-supported channels like Roku, Tubi, and Amazon’s Freevee. But there are four must-watch HBO shows you can now binge on Netflix now.
From the humorous realism of Insecure to the historical epics of Band of Brothers and The Pacific, along with the high-octane drama of Ballers, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
As WBD and Netflix continue to collaborate, shows like Six Feet Under and True Blood will also be added to the streaming giant’s library in the upcoming months. While Six Feet Under is a thought-provoking drama that explores the lives of a family running a funeral home, True Blood delves into the supernatural world of vampires and other mystical beings.
For now, you can binge-watch these HBO classics on Netflix.
Insecure is a critically acclaimed series created by and starring Issa Rae. This dramedy offers a refreshing and authentic portrayal of the everyday lives of two African-American women in Los Angeles. With its witty humour, relatable characters, and a soundtrack that’s nothing short of sensational, Insecure provides a unique perspective on friendship, romance, and the challenges of modern life.
This show is a must-watch for anyone seeking a dose of realness and a good laugh.
Band of Brothers
Band of Brothers is a landmark miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. It takes viewers on an unforgettable journey through the harrowing experiences of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, during World War II.
The series is a gripping tribute to the bravery and sacrifices of those who served in the war. With exceptional storytelling and brilliant performances, Band of Brothers remains a masterpiece in the realm of historical dramas—our advice: don’t binge-watch this one.
For those who can’t get enough of World War II history, The Pacific is another gem to binge on Netflix. Produced by the same team behind Band of Brothers, this miniseries explores the Pacific Theater of the war. Through the eyes of three U.S. Marines, viewers witness the brutal realities of combat in the Pacific, making it a captivating and often heart-wrenching watch.
The Pacific is a worthy companion piece to Band of Brothers and offers a well-rounded perspective on the global conflict.
If you’re in the mood for a different kind of drama, Ballers is a thrilling sports series starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. This show dives into the high-stakes world of professional football, revealing the off-field challenges players, agents, and team owners face.
With its mix of sports, business, and personal struggles, Ballers provides an entertaining look at the cutthroat nature of the sports industry while offering a glimpse into the glamorous lifestyle of athletes.
