With more people staying inside during the pandemic, streaming services like Sling TV and HBO are offering some content free! Granted, I’m sure they hope to entice a few of you to subscribe to their pay service, but free is free.
Here are all the services that announced free content for April.
Free HBO Streaming
During April, HBO is making some series and documentaries, and movies, free for anyone to watch without a subscription. Cord cutters can download HBO Now to their favorite streaming device and start watching HBO’s free content. You can also take advantage of this free HBO content if you subscribe to Hulu or use Roku Channel. The free HBO shows and movies are available through both of those apps as well.
