You Can Now Watch The Sopranos , Veep , The Wire , and More on HBO—For Free

Emma Specter

During this remarkably stressful time, TV is one of the few bastions of comfort and predictability we have left; when I pull up my Netflix browser and hit play on The Great British Baking Show, I know I’m going to go to bed soothed (if struck with an inferiority complex about my baking skills).

Similarly, when I delve back into my marathon Sopranos rewatch, I know I’ll emerge from it (1) in awe of James Gandolfini’s acting range and (2) desperately craving an Adriana La Cerva–style beaded tennis outfit.

Luckily, my New Jersey mob-wife-outfit coveting just got a whole lot easier with HBO’s announcement that The Sopranos, Veep, Six Feet Under, and a host of its other classic shows would be available to watch for free on HBO Now and HBO Go beginning April 3.

Passionate HBO scholar that I am, I’ve taken it upon myself to rank the network’s now free shows in order of how quickly it is incumbent upon you to watch them.

  1. The Sopranos: Every day that you don’t familiarize yourself with the goings-on of Tony, Silvio, Paulie, and the gang is a day wasted. Is it dark and, at times, horrifying? Absolutely, but it’s also one of the funniest shows of all time. (Reddit agrees.)

  2. Veep: If you want to laugh at a political reality that’s only slightly more bizarre than our current one, this is the uproariously, stomach-cramp-inducingly funny show for you.

  3. Succession: Channel your anger at the people currently fleeing New York into love-hating these other selfish rich people who are mired in New York instead.

  4. The Wire: Aren’t you sick of having every man in your life tell you to watch this gritty crime drama? And no, you can’t skip season three.

  5. True Blood: Seven seasons of steamy vampire drama? Sign yourself up, especially if you missed it the first time.

  6. Six Feet Under: This is one of my favorite shows of all time—I cried for three days after I watched the finale—but given that it deals primarily with death, it may not be the distraction you’re currently seeking, so proceed at your own risk.

  7. Barry: Never seen it, but it seems good.

  8. Ballers: It has The Rock! But I’ve never seen it.
