Free HBO

Good evening/morning,

 

I currently subscribe to DirectTV for tv and ATFor wireless.  When I signed up for unlimited data, I was told that this service would include HBO after 2 billing cycles. I don’t care if I have to watch HBO on HBOGo or HBONow, but I need to know which app I need to use to login.  And I seriously hope the answer is that I need to buy a package on DirectNow.  If it is too soon to activate my free HBO then let me know. If I am not eligible for free HBO because I was already an ATT client, alert me.  Accessing this service should not be this complicated!  I seriously hate ATT customer service on many levels after this past year.

Re: Free HBO

If you have Directv satellite service, you need to add HBO to your program package if not already added. You should then just get acredit for HBO on your monthly Directv bill. To watch on a mobile device or any other streaming device, you use HBO GO or the Directv app. You sign into HBO GO with your Directv account info.

Re: Free HBO

Will this work for two different billing cards. I pay my cell phone bill myself, but the directtv account is billed on a different checking account.

Thanks for clearing this up for me.

Re: Free HBO

I have registered and followed all the steps. I can access Direct TV Now but not hbo Go, where is the problem? When I select my provider on HBO Go's website it says my account does not exist.

Re: Free HBO

I'm having the same problem myself. We were told if we went to unlimited mobile service( which we had no other choice because my internet is so terrible AT&T as well ) HBO would be free because we have Directtv. I went ahead and put the Directtv now on my phone but, I can't watch anything on my phone. I have been waiting for them to put HBO on our cable.. Still not on there. I don't know if I have to go on there and order it- which I feel I shouldn't have to pay for it at all and be credited - that's bologna if you ask me. Kinda wondering if we should renig on the unlimited....

Re: Free HBO

I have directv  now account set up.  It will play whatever is playing at the time but when I go to watch an HBO movie under the movie section, it makes a god awful noise the whole time. It doesn't do that on my phone.  Any help?

Re: Free HBO

It looks like DirectTV Now is only a 7 day free trial. Does that mean after the 7 days I have to pay for directtv now? If that’s the case then hbo is not actually free.

Re: Free HBO

I cant get it right either . It tells me 7 trial  and then when I created an account it is asking which direct tv plan do I want , the smallest charge is $ 15 a month. I don't see anything free here . It also mentions something about I would pay and then get a credit . What kind of deal are we dealing with here ????????

Re: Free HBO

I cannot activate HBO because my kid opened the redeem hbo link and set it up under their email account which is not the email I use for directv now. I talked with someone last week but the issue isn’t resolved.

Re: Free HBO

I signed up and it worked. I factory reset my phone and now I can't get hbo and I've gone through the process multiple times. This is very frustrating
