So you’ve discovered the freedom and cost saving effects of ditching cable and using a service like Hulu Live or Sling. But you’re still looking for a way to integrate HBO into your television watching routine without too much hassle or additional cost. Hulu Live makes it easy by allowing you to add HBO to your normal Hulu Live channel lineup for the same price as it would be with HBO Now.
If you’re new to Hulu Live you can sign up and watch HBO absolutely free for one week. This might be a good solution for some of you who have already used up your HBO Now free trial.
Add HBO to an Existing Hulu Live Account
If you’re already a Hulu Live subscriber you can very easily add HBO to your account now for the regular price. Just log in and go to your account settings. You’ll be able to upgrade your account to include HBO or other channels like Cinemax and Starz to your account.
It’s nice to have all of your logins be united under one flag, in this case Hulu Live. Log in and add HBO to Hulu Live instead of having a seperate HBO Now login!
