HBO is an American cable TV channel. People must pay money to watch it. Now, HBO says that people can watch it for free. They do not need to pay.

HBO unlocks almost 500 hours of TV shows and documentaries. People can watch some of HBO’s most popular shows and movies. However, some TV shows are not for free. One of the biggest hits is ‘Game of Thrones’. People cannot watch it for free.

In the US, there is the coronavirus. It is better for people to stay at home. HBO wants to make people stay at home. A lot of people are using HBO now. HBO is also starting a new service soon. Free service is a good way to find new customers.

Difficult words: unlock (offer for free), documentary (a show that teaches you about something real), hit (something very good and successful), customer (a person who buys something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
