As the novel coronavirus pandemic is expected to peak over the next several weeks, having the masses stay at home will be most crucial during this time. But the lockdown orders do have their deleterious domino effects from unemployment to mental deterioration. It's under these pretenses that AT&T-owned HBO has decided to offer about 500 hours of shows and movies to everyone, subscription-free.

Starting today and through this month, you'll be able to stream nine HBO series, ten documentaries and docu-series, and 20 Warner Bros. movies for free through the HBO GO and HBO NOW platforms. You don't need to sign up for a free trial: just hop on the site or app, select a show, and get to watching.

What you'll see on the HBO GO and HBO NOW apps (minus a logo change)

If you don't want to visit HBONOW.com or HBOGO.com to access this content nor download their apps, your TV service provider may offer the same content for free as well — it'll take a few days to flip those switches, though.

As a small aside, if you download HBO NOW from the Play Store through April 19, you'll earn 5 Play Points.
