Free HBO – level 2

08-04-2020 15:00

HBO is an American premium TV network. On Friday, it announced that it will temporarily offer nearly 500 hours of TV shows and documentaries for free.

Viewers can stream some of HBO’s most popular shows, such as ‘The Sopranos’ or ‘The Wire’. HBO will also unlock some movies; however, some of HBO’s more recent hits, such as ‘Game of Thrones’, are not on the list.

HBO decided to unlock its content to make people stay inside during the coronavirus. Another reason could be that HBO wants to make people more interested in its service. The company is starting a new subscription service soon.

A lot of people are using streaming services like HBO and Netflix, because many sports events, festivals and concerts are canceled.

Difficult words: premium (paid), temporarily (for limited time), subscription (when somebody pays money every month to get something, usually a magazine or a service).

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