HBO is making select movies and shows free for everyone – here’s what they are
You can watch them via HBO NOW and HBO GO.
With many of us adjusting to life at home, streaming services are definitely getting a workout. It also means that we’re all catching up on our backlog of shows and movies to watch on services like Netflix and Hulu.
Now, HBO is joining the growing list of companies making changes to their services, with an announcement that it will be offering select shows and movies for free on HBO NOW and HBO GO. There are some really solid options here, but if you are looking for things like Game of Thrones (ew) or Westworld, you’ll have to cough up some cash.
It should be noted that this promotion is only available in the US. Also, these are currently only available through the official apps, but they will be available through other partners (Amazon Prime Video, for example) soon.
