HBO Makes Select Shows and Movies Viewable for Free for Limited Time

If you’re not subscribed to HBO Go or HBO Now, the network has a nice gift for you. For a limited time, HBO will be offering some of its shows for free.

Starting today (April 3), WarnerMedia is in “good gesture” giving fans the opportunity to watch critically acclaimed series, adding up to 500 hours of content. Shows like The Wire, Ballers, Succession, Veep, True Detective as well as movies like Detective Pikachu, Sucker Punch, and Happy Feet 2.

Those looking for Game of Thrones are out of luck.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a surge of viewing to HBO, as fans have been watching more television and streaming more shows during their off-time.

This move makes sense and is a look for the future, as WarnerMedia hopes that some of the people that watch during this limited time get hooked and end up subscribing to HBO MAX when it comes out. Or at least, to HBO NOW (which will automatically transfer to HBO MAX when it launches). There is no date as to when that “limited time” is over, though.

It’s a good look for those who don’t have the service. Get to streaming.
