Have you already exhausted your seven-day HBO trial? Well, you’re in luck. HBO is streaming nearly 500 hours of original shows and licensed movies for free, starting today. Anyone can watch these shows and movies ad-free on HBO’s website or the HBO Now and HBO GO apps (including streaming stick apps), no subscription required.

HBO is promoting its free content with the hashtag #StayHomeBoxOffice. As you’re probably well aware, this is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it may also be an attempt to ramp up excitement for the HBO Max streaming service, which launches for $15 a month in May. HBO Max is WarnerMedia’s version of Disney+ and will include most of the companies properties—HBO originals, Warner Bros movies, licensed content from Studio Ghibli, etc.

Anyway, let’s go through the shows and movies that HBO is offering for free right now:
