HBO Stories June 18

Based on the 1973 film and its subsequent sequel, HBO has struck gold with the Westworld TV series. Both the films and the TV run are perfect for a game adaption, so it was no surprise when Warner Bros. and HBO started teasing a new interactive experience. That was well over a year ago, but it looks like the release of the new Westworld iOS game is just around the corner now. expand full story

Stream the series debut of HBO’s Ballers in HD for free

HBO’s new original series Ballers premiered earlier this week. This show stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and is garnering strong comparisons to Entourage, which is not bad company.

Looking at the lives of former and current football players, the show follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore as he gets his life on track in retirement while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football.

Don’t have an HBO subscription but want to check out this new show? The entire first episode of Ballers is now available to be streamed via Facebook for free. Make sure you’re signed into Facebook and then just head to this page to start watching. Heads up, there’s an awkward intro that plays before the episode so you may want to fast forward past that, unless you want to watch The Rock make some cringe-worthy comments about “love making.” Sign-up for a 30-day HBO Now trial to catch a few more episodes for free.

The series premier of HBO’s The Brink is also available to be streamed for free on Facebook.
