HBO premiered its new series “The Newsroom” last night, but many journalists posted on Twitter that they couldn’t watch the much-anticipated news drama because they were busy working in their own newsrooms. Some also tweeted they didn’t watch the pilot because they couldn’t afford an HBO subscription on a reporter’s salary.
Whatever the reason, viewers are getting a second chance to watch the pilot online through YouTube.
HBO announced Monday it would allow people to watch the first episode online for free. It’s unknown how long the pilot will be available online, so it might be wise to take advantage while the content is still available.
I know what I’ll be watching tonight.
