Just in time for the Game of Thrones season six premiere on Sunday, HBO has announced that its premium service will be free this weekend. The promotion, which is part of a partnership with Cinemax, will last from Friday, April 22 to Monday, April 25 and will allow anyone with a cable subscription to tune in to the channel for a 48-hour trial period.
In addition to catching up with the habitants of Westeros, viewers will be able to watch Beyoncé’s Lemonade special event, the season premieres of Veep and Silicon Valley, the pay-TV premiere of Jurassic World and a new episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
And for those who don’t have cable, the company is still offering a free month of its HBO Now standalone streaming service.
