With the launch of HBO Now, we all finally have access to the award-winning content that the network produces, regardless of whether or not we pay for cable. That means that anyone who pays the $14.99 monthly fee can watch HBO’s entire back catalog, but it also means you can watch new shows and movies the minute they become available.

  • Doll & Em, Season 2 Finale (10/18)

Next we have a list of films that will be newly available on HBO Now starting October 1st:

  • 28 Days, 2000
  • Blazing Saddles, 1974
  • Blood Diamond, 2006
  • Brick, 2005
  • Burn after Reading, 2008
  • House on Haunted Hill, 1999
  • License to Drive, 1988
  • Little Miss Sunshine, 2006
  • Lost in Translation, 2003
  • Magnolia, 1999
  • Return to House on Haunted Hill, 2007
  • Revenge of the Nerds, 1984
  • Rumor Has It, 2005
  • The Rock, 1996
  • Trick ‘R Treat, 2007

And finally, if you have kids, here are all the family-friendly films coming to HBO Now on October 1st:

  • Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, 2004
  • Alvin and the Chipmunks, 2007
  • Bee Movie, 2007
  • Ella Enchanted, 2004
  • Happy Feet, 2006
  • The Kid, 2000
  • Like Mike, 2002
  • Like Mike 2: Streetball, 2006
  • Mrs. Doubtfire, 1993
  • Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, 2000
  • Shrek, 2001

Plenty of great additions hitting the streaming service next month, but I think I’m most interested in seeing what HBO has done with The Leftovers in its second season. I’ll also probably watch Magnolia again, and I can’t recommend Brick highly enough if you haven’t seen it.
