I noticed several references to some HBO shows on Boxee (notably True Blood), but can't figure out how to find them.

Ideas?

I agree - I'd love to see HBO on boxee.
Unfortunately I do not think HBO offers an online viewing option yet. They only recently released some shows in iTunes, it seems like they are trying to figure out what their presence is going to look like.
Personally, I'd pay $5/month for HBO and hopefully Boxee will be able to support something like that when it happens.

Wow if boxee had a HBOGO.com plugin I would subscribe to HBO for sure. Seems Fios is really trying to get all these goodies to become the leading competitor :) EpixHD is another great idea that needs a plugin!

Wow, that's a great looking site. A hbo boxee app would be killer. Sucks they aren't supporting Direct TV yet.

Very likely you are seeing content that is offered by Netflix. They offer several premium cable shows through their streaming service, True Blood may be one of them.

RSS torrent feed on a schedule until they give me a legal way to do this, this goes for all shows I like.

Seriously content providers, your options are web based with advertising revenue or torrent with no revenue. You're choice.

I have a 25/25 FiOS connection and the online EpixHD quality sucked (at least that was the case during the trial period last fall). It didn't even look good in a browser (not maximized) on a 22" monitor, never mind on 40+" TV.

I had the opposite experience when they offered a free weekend a couple months ago... of course this was on a sub 40" SDTV. I would rate the quality as at least equal to DVD, perhaps slightly better.

Looks like this went public.. I would also love to see this integrated into Boxee...
