AT&T is offering a free year of HBO for new AT&T TV and DIRECTV customers. This offer will give subscribers HBO channels in their lineup, along with giving them access to HBO Max when the service launches in May.
Along with free HBO, AT&T is giving all video subscribers free previews of EPIX, HBO, and Cinemax.
- EPIX: April 2-16
- HBO and CINEMAX: April 17-20
This offer comes just after AT&T removed HBO from AT&T TV NOW Plus packages and dropped the price of the package by $10/month.
AT&T mentions in a blog post announcing the deal that while people are spending most time watching news, there has also been an overall increase in the number of hours spent watching TV in general. Households are renting movies and searching for more movies available to stream, to keep the whole family entertained.
In addition to being available as a free channel for AT&T TV and DIRECTV customers, HBO is making nearly 500 hours of programming free via the HBO NOW and HBO GO apps. Distributors, including The Roku Channel, are also making the content free for all users.
