If you have AT&T’s most expensive unlimited data plan, the wireless provider is giving you free HBO to watch “Game of Thrones” or your other favorite TV shows and movies.

AT&T includes free HBO for some wireless customers

AT&T Unlimited &More Premium plan subscribers can select one of these entertainment perks at no extra charge:

  • HBO
  • Cinemax
  • SHOWTIME
  • STARZ
  • VRV
  • Amazon Music Unlimited
  • Pandora Premium

How much money does this really save you? HBO, which is now owned by AT&T, has a standalone streaming service called HBO NOW (free trial) that normally costs $14.99 per month.

To be clear, the free HBO offer is only for those who have the AT&T Unlimited &More Premium plan.

Customers who have either the AT&T Unlimited &More Premium or the AT&T Unlimited &More plan also get AT&T WatchTV, a live TV streaming service with 35+ channels.

It features networks like TBS, Cartoon Network, CNN, Discovery and more — not HBO.

You really need to take advantage of these entertainment perks for AT&T’s unlimited wireless plans to be a good value. They cost up to $80/month for a single line.
