Free - HBO - During Covid-19 Pandemic - US VPN required

Retailer:
HBO
HBO is unlocking its biggest trove of free programming ever — in a goodwill gesture as people look for a diversion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WarnerMedia-owned premium cabler is making almost 500 hours of programming available to stream for free for a limited time on HBO Now and HBO Go services without a subscription, starting this Friday, April 3.

EDIT:
As per @thefeebster - HBO GO is available via VPN - Thank You!

- Enjoy

HBO GO is only supported in the U.S. and certain U.S. territories.

No one will be able to use HBO go or now here in Canada. Wrong forum.

Well, i just tried with my VPN (Pia) and HBO Go works. A lot of us on this forum use VPNs, based on the deal threads.

Why not just skip straight to torrenting? Even cheaper with no VPN costs.

VPN's are pretty common nowadays and a bunch even work with services that try and IP block. I have used PIA with netflix for about 2 years by simply switching location when they block one.

By your logic of saying this doesn't belong, wouldn't any deal in Calgary then deserve the same treatment for the base of users in Toronto who are unable to get the deal? Those who have a VPN can get this deal. Those who live in a specific region can get other deals.

How to sign up? Any direct links? I checked HBO and it’s asking me to subscribe for 14 days free only...
If you like them, please be sure to up vote my posts! When you upvote my posts, this is what happens:
My wife loves me more😂, my car goes faster😎, my house becomes bigger😐, My boss gives me a raise😁.

Fact check, none of the above is valid.

Turn on your VPN, then try here.... https://play.hbonow.com/page/urn:hbo:page:home

Seems like it’s only 9 series available for free from what I can see but if any of those interest you it could make for some binge watching....

I just checked PIA website and they want $39.95 for a year plus two free months. Are there any other providers who can get the job done for less?

using torrents takes a bit more time. much easier to turn on the tv and shield and go straight to hbogo.

also i have no vpn costs, but of course, there is the cost of having hbogo.
