HBO Dropped A Bunch of Free TV and Movies

April 3, 2020 by Juliet Bennett Rylah

If throwing on a ridiculous, sexy vampire show or a movie about an adorable, fuzzy detective would help you get through another weekend indoors, you’re in luck. To give us more content to binge at home, HBO is dropping a ton of free films and TV shows today. You’ll be able to access the free content through April 30. 

Not everything HBO has to offer will be free. For instance, some newer shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld aren’t on the list. But there some solid TV options, including Six Feet Under and Barry—two of our picks for binge-worthy shows set in L.A. Plus, there’s a slew of documentaries and films, including family-friendly choices like Detective Pikachu, Smallfoot, and The LEGO Movie 2
