HBO wants to give you a reason to stay home

Here’s all the free content you can watch on HBO during the coronavirus crisis

HBO is pulling a Pornhub — in a good way. The company announced it’s making a long list of series and movies available to stream for free to encourage people to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a tweet, HBO said the content will be available starting from Friday, April 3. The best bit? You won’t even need a subscription to take advantage of the offering. The free content will be available on the network’s streaming services HBO NOW and HBO GO, both on mobile and desktop.

That’s about it. And by the way, don’t even dare pulling the “I’ve only got Netflix” card when someone asks why you haven’t seen The Sopranos or The Wire — you’ve got absolutely no excuse now. While we’re at it, Six Feet Under is also pretty good.

There’s only one downside to the announcement: The free content is exclusively available to the US. “This is restricted to the US only,” a statement read. That said, there are ways to get around that. Just don’t say I gave you the idea.
