Best way to get HBO

I need to sign up for HBO so I can get Watchmen on Sunday. I have YTTV but it’s not offered as an add-on there, so I wanted to see how other people are getting it. I have Amazon Prime and can add it, and also have Hulu and can add it (but I’ve been hearing a lot about Hulu issues lately) — or I can get it as a stand-alone and use the app. Are any choices better than others?

  1. Amazon gives you all the live channels plus all VOD. 5.1 audio. But it’s video bitrate and resolution are much higher than HBO now/go standalone and Hulu. Tops on market along with Apple TV channels.

  2. I’ve had it through Prime and the standalone app. I found the standalone UI easier to navigate than Prime, but the difference is not huge. I’d go with whatever is most convenient for you.

  3. I have it through my Hulu subscription. You get access to it in the Hulu app and also the HBO app, if you want.

    Something I kinda like, by going through the Hulu app you get the 15 or so live HBO channels as well. Sure you can just browse the on demand, but I like stumbling upon a movie and catching it live as well. You get this whether you have the Hulu Live TV sub or just regular Hulu version.
