After the COVID-19 outbreak last year, many people became reliant on online platforms for entertainment. Some shopped online, some played online games, and some streamed TV shows and movies. Keeping that in mind, HBO launched its streaming platform in May 2020 branded as HBO Max. Initially, it came out with a handful of originals, including Love Life and The Flight Attendant; some kids’ programs, like Looney Tones Cartoons and The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo; and a documentary called Off the Record. With time, the HBO Max TV shows and movies library grew bigger; and as of now, it has more than 2000 movies and 580 TV shows available to watch.
A TV show is a vastly engaging medium of entertainment, taking into account what genre you are interested in. You can watch TV shows on your television at home by subscribing to a TV service provider and you can do that by calling Spectrum TV Customer Service and choosing a TV plan that fits your needs. You can also watch TV shows on streaming platforms like HBO Max, which may be included in your Spectrum TV subscription. At times it is hard to choose from a wide range of TV shows, so for that, we have compiled a list of TV series for you that are worth watching.
