AT&T Giving HBO to Unlimited Plus Customers for Free
AT&T today said customers who subscribe to its Unlimited Plus wireless plan will be given free access to HBO. There are three ways to watch HBO for free. First, customers who already subscribe to HBO through an AT&T video service (DirecTV, U-Verse) will now get HBO at no cost as long as they also subscribe to Unlimited Plus. HBO will refund the monthly fee directly on customers' bills. Second, AT&T video and wireless customers who don't already subscribe to HBO will automatically receive access to HBO's premium channels through that video service for free. Last, customers who have the AT&T Unlimited Plan, but don't use an AT&T-branded video service, will be able to access HBO via DirecTV Now or the HBO Go apps at no cost. The AT&T Unlimited Plus plan includes a $25 monthly video credit that can be applied to any AT&T video service, such as DirecTV Now, in addition to unlimited data, talk, text, and 10GB of Wi-Fi tethering. Free HBO will be available to Unlimited Plus customers starting April 6.
