Get ready for #stayhomeboxoffice!
In an effort to encourage viewers to stay home, HBO (Home Box Office) has released 500 hours of programming for free. Starting today, Friday April 3rd, HBO fan favorites and classics will be available to watch on HBO platforms without a paid subscription. This marks the first time HBO has released content outside of a paid subscription or cable service. Current HBO hits such as Game of Thrones and Westworld are still behind the HBO paywall, but if you’ve been looking to binge The Wire or Veep, now’s your chance!
Other providers and networks that currently offer free entertainment include AMC Networks, which has made content from AMC, BBC America, IFC, and Sundance Now available, and Amazon, which currently provides kids’ shows for free. Many services are also offering extended free trials, including CBS All Access (one month free with the code GIFT; Patrick Stewart shared the code and information through an Instagram post).
To start your free HBO experience, head to HBONOW.com or HBOGO.com. Here’s the list of content now available without an HBO subscription:
