I still have it for free (all the HBO channels and everything on demand) and every show episode on demand says free until Monday night but that has kept changing. The other day it said free until last night.

I tried to find out from my cable company if it will still be free when season 8 of Game of Thrones starts tonight and they can't tell me. They say that HBO offers the promotional thing which I *knew*....but I still think the cable company should have info on when it ends. They said each individual customer's free offer is totally different and they have no info.

But I'll bet anything that my offer and everyone else's offer will end at 8:59 pm, just before Game of Thrones starts.

I'm very sure that was their MO ... to have the free week end right before the GOT premiere ... definitely not a coinky-dink. ;)

For those who cannot get free HBO, note that your local library might have DVD's that you can check out for free. I've seen the first five seasons of GOT that way.

Thanks for the reminder! I just reserved Season 1 but the waiting list is pretty long so I may not get it for months. But waiting is better than paying for it, in my opinion.

I'm not willing to wait. It won't even be on Netflix in DVD for months and months and they don't stream it. I just pay for HBO until GOT ends.

My free HBO promotional was gone this morning. I was amazed it lasted through that first episode last night.

After GOT of thrones is over I'm dumping the tv service anyway and just keeping the internet for streaming.

If you read a lot you'll get your money's worth in books in a very short time. And it's kind of a donation.

I just got an email from my brother this morning. He watched Episode 1 of Season 8 last night. He says it was *awful*. He compared it to Star Wars' "The Clone Wars".

I dunno... any episode that features Ed Sheeran's face being melted by a dragon can't be ALL bad...
