HBO To Stream Select Movies & Classic TV Shows For Free

HBO is offering streaming of hits like "Veep", "The Sopranos", "Ballers" for free


With the coronavirus putting upending release plans for new movies, TV, and even video games, HBO will be offering streaming on classic shows like Veep, True Blood, The Wire, and even new favorites like Succession and Ballers for free. Also included will be movies such as Lego Movie 2 and Detective Pikachu.

Starting April 3, HBO will be streaming almost 500 hours of material on both the HBO Now and HBO Go apps free, but only for a limited time. Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire are notably absent from the service, but there are seven seasons of The Sopranos alone, so that should keep any cabin fever sufferer busy for a minute.

All of the content will be available to stream for free via participating distribution partners' platforms in the coming days as well.

It's not just the movies and TV, but also documentaries like the recent hit McMillions. HBO is known to do free trial weekends every now and then, but this is a historic move by the company.

Below you can find all of the content streaming for free, including the movies that will be offered with the no-subscription plan. Since it is a WarnerMedia-owned operation, they are limited to Warner Bros studio movies, but it's not a bad selection.
