1) Go to DirectTVnow

2) Click start free trial

3) DO NOT immediately type in your email address, etc., to create an account

4) DO click on Verify Your Number link to enter your ATT phone number to get your free HBO account

5) After typing in your phone number, you receive a text message you need to respond to for verfication

6) You then type in your email address and pick a password

7) You get two options - HBO free or HBO plus Live TV.  The second option costs $10 a month.  Be sure to click the first for just HBO for free.  You can then logout of DirectTV.  

😎 Download HBOGo app.  Choose DirectTVNow as your provider when setting up your HBOGo account.  You'll need to type in your DirectTVNow email address and password to verify DirectTVNow is your provider.  You'll then be able to set up and HBOGo account.

I read on the Direct Now forum you have to sign in with the same user ID and password as you use for your wireless account.

I can't get my HBO. I call ATT and no one knows how to help me. I was offered HBO and I want it. Why
Doesn't att care know the process. Frustrating.

I've done that. It doesn't work.  I get a message that they are having trouble verifying my access to HBO GO with my TV provider.

Talked to a phone rep. You can only access it if you have a direct tv plan so no matter what they say you aren*t getting it u less you pay for a plan. So basically it's a misrepresentation

DirectTV has the worst interface of any commercial streaming service I have seen. I worked thru the steps several times and they do not work for me. At #5, I get a screen message my phone  number is qualified but no verification text message. Then I create DirectTVnow account or login and it acts as if I am just a new subscriber - no free HBO offer.

It must take some magic to make these steps work. 

Cannot believe AT&T is trying push DirectTV on all subscribers with this type of gimmick.

There is no option to do that. Where's the Free HBO? Where's this $10 plan for DTVNow?
