HBO Go (Free) lets you watch any episode of HBO's excellent shows like The Wire, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Entourage, Six Feet Under and The Sopranos instantly on-demand on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, along with a host of other original specials and the latest movies showing on the acclaimed network — as long as you're with the right provider.
