HBO will upload the first season 3 episodes of Girls on YouTube

HBO will upload the first two episodes of Girls season three onto the network’s YouTube channel on Jan. 13 at 10 a.m. ET, just 12 hours after they premiere on HBO. Rather than requiring fans to watch live during Sunday’s two-part premiere or forcing them to catch up using its HBO GO subscription service, offering the episodes for free on YouTube is one way the network is courting the show’s active online fan base.

If you don’t have HBO (or your parents can’t figure out the password you need so you can mooch off their HBO GO account), no problem. You’ll still be able to watch the season three premiere of Girls, for free, just 12 hours after it airs. The network will upload the two-part premiere to its YouTube channel on Jan. 13 at 10 a.m. EST. This will make it very convenient for the show’s young, Internet-dwelling fans.
