Get three weeks of HBO's In Treatment sessions free online

Gabriel ByrneIf you're cool, then you've been following HBO's bold new nightly series In Treatment, starring Gabriel Byrne, Blair Underwood and Dianne Wiest among others. If you're even cooler than you've been reading our awesome reviews right here at TV Squad. Don't worry, the reviews will continue, only instead of being nightly you'll get a weekly recap.

So far, you've missed eight episodes, but it's still not too late. In an unprecedented move for HBO, they're making the first three weeks (that's fifteen episodes for you mathematically challenged) available for free viewing online. The full series runs 43 episodes, but these 15 will give you plenty of time to give your cable/satellite provider a call and sign up for HBO.

You can see the first two weeks in their entirety right now at HBO.com/InTreatment. In Treatment is a tough sell in America as we're not used to committing to a nightly show, and even though HBO repeats the episodes all week and even in a marathon run each weekend, this is a great move to try and get the show in front of as many potential viewers as possible. It's initiatives like this that are how the "new media" should be utilized to promote and push new television programming. And HBO needs all the help it can get right now with it's original programming if it wants to remain competitive post-Sopranos.

I actually don't have HBO but I started watching this show last week when I went to the HBO website and was able to watch all five episodes. Also I just found out that they have an itunes channel too, so I can now download the episodes straight to my ipod. Not sure what I'll do after 3 weeks is up...
