how to get HBO for life with AT&T unlimited data plan


How To Sign Up For HBO Using AT&T Unlimited Plus Offer



First of all, thanks for being a valued AT&T member! We understand you have many options to choose from! If you took advantage of AT&T Unlimited Plus plan, you can now stream HBO for Life using AT&T U-verse TV service, DIRECTV or DIRECTV NOW!


Stream HBO from your computer of mobile device and take advantage of unlimited access to Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, VEEP and more!


  • 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 additional charge.
  • If you subscribe to an AT&T video service but not HBO, you’ll automatically receive access to the premium HBO channels as part of your wireless plan.
  • If you don’t subscribe to an AT&T video service, you can access your HBO content through the DIRECTV NOW and HBO Go apps.


If you do not have TV service, create DIRECTV NOW account by:

  1. Creating a DIRECTV NOW account.
  2. On the first page, select the Verify number link to enter your AT&T Unlimited Plus plan wireless number.  
  3. Once your wireless number is verified, enter an email address and a password to create your DIRECTV NOW account.  
  4. That’s all there is to it! Just select Start watching on the next page to use DIRECTV NOW.


If you have DIRECTV or U-verse television service, a credit is applied to the bill. It can take 1-2 billing cycles for you to see the credit.

I had HBO for life when I signed up for DirecTV along with my AT&T phone service. Then when I added AT&T internet service they removed my HBO because I have a veterans discount. Apparently, veterans are not allowed to view HBO? I no longer have the AT&T internet nor do I have HBO. Is there a way to get the HBO for "life" back since 1), I am not "dead" and 2), I am "still" a veteran?
