HBO Now has finally landed on Apple TV, giving users access to stream HBO’s entire catalog of shows and live programming for just $14.99 per month. Apple TV owners can start using the service immediately with a free 30-day trial period.

Today’s HBO Now launch comes just in time for the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere this Sunday. If you haven’t caught up, there might be enough hours left in the week to stream the past four seasons.

The new service will be an Apple exclusive for three months, and will also be available on iPhone and iPad.

Other notable series available on HBO Now include The Wire, Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire, Veep, Sex and the City and The Sopranos. There are also hundreds of movies and documentaries available to stream on demand, giving Netflix its first serious competition in the cable-free content space.

You can sign up for a free trail on HBO Now’s website, Apple TV, Optimum or the HBO Now iOS app.
