HBO GO offers free access for campus residence hallsBy Sirui Shao | 10/26/2014 11:01pm
HBO GO does not offer standalone services, which means only those who pay for an HBO subscription have HBO GO. However, students who live in a residence hall on campus can sign up for HBO GO for free with their myBama login information.
“After signing up for free, you can access everything on HBO GO – all the popular HBO series on right now, documentaries, really great movies,” said Natasha Levitin, a sophomore majoring in marketing and economics and an HBO brand ambassador. “It also has throwback shows. HBO also shows about 50 percent of top 100 movies. Students who have an HBO GO account can go back to all the seasons and watch them.”
On-campus residents can keep the account once they sign up, meaning they can still log in and watch their favorite shows even when they go home for fall and winter break.
Tom Kobitter, a freshman majoring in biology, lives on campus and registered for an HBO GO account two weeks ago.
“I can watch the games all the time, and that is pretty cool,” he said. “It does not change my life a lot, but it is awesome.”
