HBO makes 500 hours of streaming content available for free during coronavirus

HBO joins other streaming platforms in releasing free programming to help make staying at home a little bit more bearable.

The company announced it will make 500 hours of programming available to stream free for a limited time.

The promotion, under the heading #StayHomeBoxOffice, kicks off on Friday, April 3. So, you’ll have plenty of shows and movies to add to your binge-watching list.

Some of the shows available under the promotion include “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Veep,” “True Blood” and “Ballers.”

You can also watch a selection of movies like “Crazy. Stupid. Love.” and “Blinded by the Light.” Many family-friendly films will stream for free like “Pokemon Detective Pikachu,” “Smallfoot” and “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.”

Documentaries like “McMillion$” and “The Inventor” will also be available for free.

You can stream the programming without a subscription on HBO Now, HBO Go or on Demand.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to watch some of HBO’s hit shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Euphoria,” and “Westworld.”

The promotion becomes available Friday on HBO Now and HBO Go.

The deal comes before HBO launches its new streaming service, HBO Max, next month.
