Get Caught Up With These HBO Shows Before The New Year


Winter is… here, which means less sunlight, colder nights, and sometimes, longer weekends thanks to the holidays. Oftentimes, that means endless errands and trips to see family and friends, but sometimes, you’ve got to ditch that jam-packed social calendar for some restorative binge watching. And sometimes you don’t want to go back to work with unfinished business in your queue. So, with that in mind, we teamed with Xfinity to clue readers into some HBO shows that — with a little planning, a lot of food delivery, plenty of hydration, and ample stretching — can be enjoyed from start to finish over a long weekend, all for free.

That’s right, from Saturday, December 29, through Tuesday, January 1, some of the most-buzzed-about HBO series can be enjoyed subscription-free during Xfinity’s HBO Free Preview Weekend. Even better news? All you need is Xfinity Internet and the ability to watch from your computer or the Xfinity Stream app on your smartphone in order to get in on the action. And there’s plenty of action. From murder mysteries to laugh-out-loud comedies and the kind of family drama that you can easily press pause on, there’s something for everyone on this list, including the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve finished something.
