Watch HBO for Free on YouTube TV

Now through Sunday, May 8, YouTube TV subscribers can watch HBO® and CINEMAX® for free.

Need to catch up with The Batman and Barry? Right now through Sunday, May 8, YouTube TV subscribers can watch HBO and CINEMAX for free.

All of HBO’s and CINEMAX’s channels should already be displayed in your YouTube TV live channel guide—unless you’re using the Custom Guide personalized option, in which case you’ll have to add the channels by accessing Settings and then Live Guide (they’ll appear at the bottom of the channel list; check the channel boxes to add them).

The channels you can watch for free on YouTube TV:


  • HBO East
  • HBO West
  • HBO2
  • HBO Signature
  • HBO Comedy
  • HBO Zone
  • HBO Family
  • HBO Latino


  • Cinemax East
  • Cinemax West
  • MoreMax
  • ActionMax
  • ThrillerMax
  • MovieMax
  • OuterMax
  • 5StarMax
  • Cinelatino

After May 8, the HBO and CINEMAX channels will disappear from your YouTube TV guide—no action is required on your part. Also, this free viewing window doesn’t apply to HBO Max, but you can get a seven-day free HBO Max trial by signing up through YouTube TV (and Hulu).
