AT&T Is Offering Free HBO to More Wireless Customers

First T-Mobile announces it will give certain customers a free Netflix subscription. Now AT&T has announced that it will extend free HBO to more customers.

Earlier this year, AT&T Wireless started including HBO with its Unlimited Plus plans. Customers on those plans have been enjoying free HBO since April.

Now, customers on AT&T Unlimited Choice wireless plans also will enjoy this freebie. It starts Friday, Sept. 15, and is available to both current and new customers on Unlimited Choice plans.

Vince Torres, senior vice president for AT&T Entertainment Group, explains:

“HBO is included in these plans whether you have 1 line or even 10 lines, and the price stays the same. This means an AT&T Unlimited Choice customer can get unlimited data, talk, text and HBO included for $60 a month or on 4 lines for less than $40 per line.”

You can learn more about these plans on AT&T’s unlimited data plans webpage.

While on that page, note the fine print that explains a possible hitch to this freebie: “After 22GB of data usage on a line in a bill cycle, for the rest of the cycle AT&T may slow data speeds on that line during periods of network congestion.”

Torres notes three ways that AT&T Unlimited Choice and Unlimited Plus customers can enjoy HBO for free:

  • If you currently subscribe to HBO through an AT&T video service — DIRECTV, DIRECTV NOW or U-verse TV — HBO will now be included for no added charge.
  • If you subscribe to an AT&T video service but not HBO, you’ll automatically receive unlimited access to HBO as part of your wireless plan.
  • If you don’t subscribe to an AT&T video service, you can access your HBO entertainment through the DIRECTV NOW and HBO GO apps.

AT&T’s HBO offer and T-Mobile’s Netflix offer are just the latest ways you can score free entertainment. For other recent options, check out “4 Ways You Can Now Enjoy Movies and TV for Free (or Dirt Cheap).”
