Winter is coming, and here's another reason to stay in: Amazon announced today that Prime members can now subscribe to HBO and Cinemax, sans cable.

The subscriptions are available as a part of Amazon Channels, which aggregates a bunch of network and streaming services all in one place. HBO and Cinemax join Showtime, Starz, PBS Kids, Daily Burn, and even more niche options.

An HBO subscription is $14.99 per month after a free 30-day trial, and Cinemax is $9.99. Prime Video, which offered all seasons of no-longer-on-air HBO shows (like The Sopranos and The Wire) and older seasons of some current ones (like Veep) are still available without a subscription.

This continues the trend of premium channels uncoupling from cable packages; Last year, HBO Now—the cable-free version of HBO GO—was announced for Apple TV and its devices, and as an add-on for internet-based live TV service Sling.
