    The article is not true. Both HBO now and HBO go. Require login info and start a 7 day trial. Not till the end of April.
    Please fact check your articles.

      This article IS true. I refer you to the HBO website, which is where we obtained the information from. HBO suggests that if you're prompted to start a free trial you should download the app to bypass it.

      Just to clarify we do fact-check our articles, but thanks for claiming otherwise.
