Why would you do this when it costs the same to get HBO Now?

Sigh. Wake me up in a few years when these services come down to earth. They are just all way too expensive.

What baffles me is that TechCrunch and others are completely ignoring the UI debacle that has been going on with Hulu for over two months. The backlash from customers has been like nothing that Hulu has every seen or experienced.

So uhhh.... why not just subscribe to "HBO Now" for $14.99/month? It let's you stream premieres live, etc without needing Hulu as the middleman.

Yeah I hate their UI. But they are stuck with it. Not like Hulu will change it anytime soon.
The new UI on Hulu is horrible. Hulu's UI on the ATVs have never been great, but it looks like they have adopted Netflix's UI on the ATV4. Visually looking nice, but not very fun to navigate or use.

One thing that I like that Hulu recently added was profiles. Using them on the ATV3 is very easy and quick, which curiously, Profiles on the ATV3 was updated a few months before the ATV4 app. Profiles on the ATV4's version of Hulu takes many clicks and swipes to switch, and with the goofy swiping of the Siri remote design, it is easy to accidentally swipe into something that you did not intend to go into (this is not just Hulu though).

Anyways, I was interested in getting HBO for a few months while GoT is on, but I might stick with the HBONow app.
