We’re all locked up in our houses, practising social distancing and quarantine. But worry not, HBO’s here to your rescue. Besides, HBO has revealed that the premium channel will give 500 FREE hours of programming to everyone. You read that right, you don’t need to pay money and subscribe to HBO, and it’s different streaming platforms.

Furthermore, HBO reveals that you can stream your favourite shows without any subscription in two easy ways. Besides, you can download the HBO Go or HBO Now application which appears as the most natural way. Other than that, you can stream the shows online on the websites, HBONOW.com or HBOGO.com.
The platform has added loads of content under the #StayHomeBoxOffice package. The package, of course, doesn’t include many shows and movies including “Games of Thrones,” we’re crying about that one too.
The package selection doesn’t appear the best as it leaves out many preferred shows and has many shows no one seems interested in. However, it still has a fairly decent mix of original tv series, movies, documentaries and more.
