I’ve tried everything and so far the only way I can get “free” HBO is to pay for Direct TV Now (which I don’t want). I changed my plan to Unlimited Choice Enhanced. I feel scammed, so far HBO is far from free.

How do you get a Directv Now account for FREE!? I have been trying for days for the service to verify that my number has an unlimited plan (which it does) and I keep getting an Oops Error message!! This is beyond frustrating I've downloaded Directv Now and HBO GO and nothing. I'm not paying for anything else in order to get something that is SUPPOSED to be included in my plan!

Yes! I was on the phone with AT&T, U Verse and Direct-TV for 1 hour and the conclusion is that if you don't have DirectTV then HBO is not free. I am so mad at how misleading their advertisement is... When I spoke to an AT&T representative he never mentioned that DirectTV was a must, he just signed me up for the 7 free day trial.

I’m having the same issues. I keep getting the oops error message. I definitely have the right unlimited plan. Direct TV won’t tell me who can fix the error message. And they won’t tell me how to create an account without adding a subscription. Has anyone been able to set this up without already having Direct TV service?

Did this ever resolve? HBO Go says "We're having trouble verifying your access.to HBO Go with your TV provider". Got HBO thru ATT unlimited and already set up DirectTV Now account

Did you even read the post?! The , “if you don’t have TV service” part tells you how to create free access to HBO GO

I previously had a direct tv now account but no longer do. So when I click on the app it has my old login saved and does not prompt me to do a free trial... how should I go about linking my phone number for free HBO in this case?

AT&T are changing their data plans. I had HBO Free through HBOGo (via DirecTV Now) when they first announced/released it (I have AT&T Unlimited Plus). Today, I tried to watch some HBO (last night I watched some perfectly fine), and DirecTV says my account doesn't have HBO.
I go check the website, and my plan is entirely missing. I try to verify my number again, and BOOM! They are saying my account doesn't qualify for free HBO anymore.
So much for "for life"
