Getting free things is always nice, but those free things are often only acquired when you actually buy something first. Still, there’s certainly no harm in getting free things when you buy something you’re interested in anyway; so if you’ve been considering a Fire TV Stick, Amazon is offering 2 months of free HBO to go along with it right now.
The deal is pretty simple and straightforward. You buy the Fire TV Stick, which has Alexa Voice Remote, and you get 2 months of HBO with prime video channels. There’s a few things to keep in mind about this, however. For one, you’ll need a Prime membership to even subscribe to HBO and its prime channels. Secondly, your HBO subscription begins after you checkout, not when the Fire TV Stick is actually delivered. The 2 months of HBO will be applied to the Amazon account that made the purchase, and it can’t be transferred. Both new and returning subscribers to HBO with prime channels are eligible for this deal.
Taking all of that that into consideration, you could lose a few days of your free HBO since it might take a little time for your Fire TV Stick to arrive. However, you have an alternative to fall back on. You can watch HBO on Prime Video with any compatible device. This may require you to download the Prime video app or watch HBO straight from Amazon.com, but either way you can make use of your free months of HBO prior to the Fire TV Stick actually arriving on your doorstep. It’s also important to note that this deal is only available for the Fire TV Stick HD, and not the 4K variant. And don’t forget to cancel your subscription before the two months is up if you aren’t interested in maintaining it; HBO will automatically renew the subscription you got for free when it’s no longer free.
Either way, while 2 months is a whole lot of time, it is about $30 in subscription fees, so if there are some HBO prime shows you really want to watch, you might as well take advantage of this deal while it’s still going and do it for free. Just be quick about it; like all deals, there’s never any way to know just how long it will last before it ends or is just no longer available.
