HBO Has Almost 500 Hours Of Free Content Available Right Now

What a time to have so many streaming services at our fingertips! The nationwide push to #StayAtHome during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a high spike in people turning to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and other options to keep them entertained for the foreseeable future. HBO is never one to be outdone, so the network is opening up almost 500 hours of content on HBO Now and HBO GO to non-subscribers.

Starting April 3, anyone can tune in for a solid roster of free programming including iconic shows like The Wire, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Veep, True Blood, Ballers, and Succession. If you have been wanting to re-watch these shows or finally get into them, then you should do it right now.

Documentary fans will be able to check out McMillions, The Inventor, and United Skates among others. And movies like Pokémon Detective Pikachu, The LEGO Movie 2, and Isn’t It Romantic are also available for those who may not have the time to dive into yet another series.

It’s all a part of their #StayHomeBoxOffice campaign to encourage people to 1) stay at home and flatten the curve and 2) find a reprieve by diving into some cool entertainment options. 500 hours may seem like a lot but when you are in the house for the foreseeable future, it’s really not that long at all.

Viewers can download the HBO GO or HBO Now apps to get access to this content. The company will also make these selections available for free through their distributing partners’ platforms soon, too. It’s not clear how long this offering will be available, so get to it people.
