With several million of us under some kind of lockdown or isolation protocol, streaming services are raking in viewership like they never have before. Netflix is crushing it with Tiger King, Stan is beefing up content in preparation for the new season of Billions and Pornhub is…well, pumping. But television giant HBO, famous for hits like Game of Thrones and The Sopranos has broken free from the ranks, dropping over 500 hours’ worth of content online, all for the low, low price of nothing. That’s right, nada.

Six Feet Under
— HBO (@HBO) April 2, 2020
The free bevy of movies, shows and documentaries kicked off last week, available to viewers all around the globe during these trying times. “To provide some entertainment relief for those doing their part to keep everyone safe and healthy in this time of social isolation, HBO is making almost 500 hours of top programming available to stream for free for a limited time on HBO NOW and HBO GO – without a subscription,” HBO said in a press release.
What Can You Watch on HBO For Free?
The best part about HBO’s new-found charity offer is that the company isn’t just dropping a bunch of television shows and movies that no one has ever heard of.
