Here’s what’s new on HBO in April, and what’s going away

The perfect complement to April showers is streaming video. Lucky for us, HBO will again bring new and exciting streaming content to its lineup this month, including new episodes of popular shows, as well as numerous hit movies.

On the series front, the premium network’s most anticipated new offering in April is the second season of sci-fi/Western drama Westworld, which takes place in a near future where human-like robots have been placed inside a massive fantasy land to indulge the whims of the wealthy and powerful.

In terms of feature-length content, the streaming service will debut Paterno, a drama about legendary football coach Joe Paterno. Starring Al Pacino, the film will follow the coach in the aftermath of the sexual abuse scandal involving assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, which rocked the college football world in 2011. HBO also launches a compelling documentary in Elvis Presley: The Searcher, which follows the musician from his formative years all the way through his final recordings in 1976.

As always, each passing month means some titles move from HBO’s inventory into the realms of memory and Blu-ray purchases (or onto other streaming platforms). Before April comes to a close, be sure to watch films like The Royal Tenenbaums, Zoolander, and La La Land.

Read on for our list of the best new titles coming to HBO, and scroll on to the second page to see what’s going away. (Bolded titles signify films and shows we recommend.) Interested in what’s on other streaming services? Be sure to check out what’s new on Amazon Prime and what’s new on Netflix.
