If you were on the fence about buying a Roku or looking to buy a new one, now may be the time. Anyone who purchases a new Roku streaming player by July 1, 2017 is eligible for 2 free months of HBO NOW.
HBO NOW is essentially HBO Go, but for the cord cutter. It works just as it does for cable customers who pay to have HBO and use their cable credentials to stream HBO Go on their devices. The difference is that HBO NOW is a stand-alone app that cord cutters subscribe to individually to get the same privileges as cable users who stream HBO Go.
HBO NOW customers get full access to the cable channel’s documentaries, movie catalog, and blockbuster shows such as Game of Thrones and Girls.
New Roku purchasers looking to add two months of free HBO NOW must sign up as a new HBO NOW subscriber. Here are the official terms and conditions as posted on the official Roku site.
Purchase a new Roku player or new Roku TV and activate it by connecting to the internet and linking to your new or existing Roku account between 5/6/17 and 6/24/17 to see if you qualify to receive two months of HBO NOW included with your purchase. Promotional offer is for new HBO NOW subscribers only. The new Roku device must be activated by 6/24/17 and you must subscribe to HBO NOW by 7/1/17 at 11:59 PT in order to qualify for the two month HBO NOW promotional offer. Promotional offer requires enrollment in an HBO NOW subscription and provision of a valid payment method for continued service after the promotional period. TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AND AVOID BEING CHARGED, YOU MUST CANCEL BEFORE THE END OF THE TWO MONTH PROMOTIONAL PERIOD. AFTER THE TWO MONTH PROMOTIONAL PERIOD, ROKU WILL CHARGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD $14.99 EACH MONTH PLUS TAX, IF APPLICABLE, ON A RECURRING BASIS UNTIL YOU CANCEL.
