HBO Now officially arrives on Apple TV – and you can try it for free for one month!

HBO Now Apple TV Free First Month

If you’re looking to watch the first new episodes of Game of Thrones’ fifth season this coming Sunday, you’ll be able to do so for free on your Apple TV. Per 9to5Mac, HBO’s standalone HBO Now app has made its official debut on Apple TV and it’s coming with a free one-month trial. This means you’ll be able to get the first four episodes of the new season of Game of Thrones, along with new episodes of shows such as Veep and Silicon Valley, completely free for one month. After the one-month trial, of course, you’ll have to pay $14.99 per month to keep using HBO Now.

Right now, the app is only available for Apple TV owners but 9to5Mac says that the app will arrive on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod “as soon as today.” HBO Now is part of HBO’s effort to appeal to cord cutters who only want to subscribe to HBO without having to pay for pricey cable bundles. It’s now one of many options that cord cutters have to get their TV fix, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant and Sling TV.

HBO Now is going to be an exclusive to Apple devices for three months but the app will likely be available to Android users and Windows users shortly after.
