How to Get Amazon Prime and HBO Free

Photo by John P. Johnson / HBO / Money Talks News

Good news, everyone: If you’ve been at all interested in watching “Westworld,” HBO’s new sci-fi/western smash hit based on a film by Michael Crichton, Amazon can hook you up for free.

The show, featuring Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris alongside an Emmy shoe-in performance from Evan Rachel Wood, follows visitors to an immersive Wild West theme park where the “attractions” turn on the guests. In other words, if you liked the movie “Jurassic Park,” also based on material by Michael Crichton, you’ll probably like this show, too. Especially for free. Check out some of the reviews and its “certified fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes.

But that’s not all. Because this deal includes access to HBO’s streaming catalog, you can watch every season of “Game of Thrones,” “Girls,” “Silicon Valley,” “Veep,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “True Blood,” “True Detective,” “Sex and the City,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Six Feet Under,” “Oz,” and more, as well as their current selection of movies featuring recent hits you won’t find in Netflix yet, like “The Martian,” “Deadpool,” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” without paying a dime. Click here for a full listing.

How’s it work?

Simple: A few weeks ago, Amazon added HBO as an optional subscription to their Prime Video program — and they’re offering free 30 day trials. It’s essentially the same offer you’ll find on HBO Now, but with Amazon’s streaming infrastructure behind it, which should help alleviate many of the concerns some users have had with video quality on HBO Now. And it’s a second opportunity for a free 30 days of HBO if you’ve already taken advantage of HBO Now’s offer in the past. There is no obligation to continue past the 30 free days, so you can simply cancel your subscription and walk away having enjoyed all HBO has to offer during the holidays.

As a bonus, if you don’t already have an Amazon Prime account, you’ll get a 30 day free trial of it as well, which means free two-day shipping from now until just after the holidays. Plus Prime Video (unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows), Prime Music (millions of songs to listen to, including The Beatles), Prime Photos (unlimited, secure storage for your pictures), Prime Reading (free books), and 30-minute early access to Lightning deals on Amazon (which could help with your holiday shopping), among other benefits.

To take advantage of this offer now, click here to start your free trial. Hopefully, a little free HBO will be a nice treat for the holidays.
