This week we learned that PlayStation Vue cut its free trial from 7 days down to 5 days. Now it seems as if HBO is also cutting back on its free trial.
Late last year HBO released an Amazon Channel allowing Amazon subscribers to subscribe to HBO through Amazon. This gives subscribers full access to all the content found on HBO NOW but lets Amazon handle the billing.
When it launched you would have received a 30-day free trial if you signed up for the service. Now at some point more recently HBO dropped the trials down to just 7 days.
No reason was given for the change, and we will likely never find out; however, if you still want a free month of all the best HBO content you can sign up for HBO NOW. Yup HBO NOW is still offering a 30-day free trial of HBO.
It could be that HBO caught on that some people would jump back and forth for free trials.
Now you can still get a free trial if you want to let Amazon Channels manage the billing of your HBO subscription. You just will no longer get a 30-day free trial.
Hopefully this trend of cutting back on free trials wont continue with other services.
