For the past few years, Game of Thrones has held tightly to the title of the most pirated TV show and that’s not likely to change this year as well. Fans are gearing up for the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere this weekend, and those that employ less-than-legal means to get their GoT fix might want to pay attention because the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere is free on HBO this weekend.
HBO, a premium cable network, looks to win over more subscribers by giving them a taste of what it has to offer. It’s offering a 48-hour trial period that coincides with the premiere of its biggest TV show.
HBO free preview runs from this Friday to Monday and it covers the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere, the premiere of Beyonce’s Lemonade, as well as that of Silicon Valley.
Other programming available during this window includes the pay-TV premiere for Jurassic World, the season 4 premiere of Veep and a new episode of the talk show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Viewers who don’t have cable can get a free 30-day trial of HBO by signing up for its over-the-top streaming service HBO Now. The streaming service costs $15 per month once the trial period is over.
