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 list of free programming includes every episode of nine HBO series: “The Sopranos,” “Veep,” “Succession,” “Six Feet Under,” “The Wire,” “Ballers,” “Barry,” “Silicon Valley” and “True Blood.”.

Notably, however, HBO megahit “Game of Thrones” is absent from the free-streaming fiesta, as are recent hits including “Westworld,” “Big Little Lies,” “Euphoria” and “Chernobyl.”

(Separately, HBO provides a limited selection of single episodes from its tentpole series to watch for free.).

HBO Max will include everything on HBO, plus a host of originals, library titles and licensed content — for the same $14.99 monthly price.

The content will also be made available for free via participating U.S. distribution partners’ platforms in the next several days, according to HBO.

HBO content available to stream without a subscription includes:. »
