Re: Free month of HBO access? All I'm getting is a week

Jump to solution

It depends on the movie and show.  Not all HBO content are free.  You have to just click and check.  For example McMillions is free.  You will see the option to play for free without subscription.  Access through he Roku channel

Re: Free HBO GO and HBO NOW Promotional Content on Roku?

Jump to solution

I followed all the steps and watched the first 3 episodes of The Soprano's. When we tried to watch episode 4 it would not allow us to watch it and we then notices that not all of the episodes were free. It clearly says in all the advertising including what is on Roku that this should be free for all episodes. Why are they not available?!?

Personally I think it's odd that the free content can't be viewed using the HBO Now channel since it can with the app from Apple TV or Android. Needing to access it through an entirely different channel no less searching for specific content is silly.

Tanner et. al:

I've tried every which way and I still cannot get any free content.

Like others, I just get the menu wanting me to sign up for the 7-day free trial.

 

I have tried via HBO NOW and Roku Channel (via my Roku box). I search for say The Sopranos. No joy.

 

HELP

@Tanner...You have to open the Roku Channel, scroll to the search icon, then enter a program like Sopranos. When you see it to the right, you'll notice it will say Free episodes then click on it. I haven't actually watched any since I've seen all the episodes and the free movies listed from other sites are lame. But HBO's movie catalog has dwindled severely over the years which is why I stopped paying for it. Hope that helps.

That's exactly what I do. It only says 1st episode is free.
