HBO Free Preview Weekend July 2018

HBO & Cinemax Free Preview This Weekend

Don’t miss a free preview of HBO & Cinemax this weekend on Sling TV! From July 6 – 9, all eligible Sling subscribers will have access to both channels’ premium content libraries. So what exactly does that entail? Dragons – binge away on all the dragons, plus robots who kill and hit movies like Justice League and Wonder Woman.

If for some strange reason that doesn’t pique your interest (maybe you’re still not over The Red Wedding?), then stay tuned because Sunday night includes the premiere of Amy Adams’ new thriller, Sharp Objects, only on HBO. Based on a novel by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl), the miniseries also stars Patricia Clarkson and Chris Messina in the story of reporter who returns to her hometown to investigate a series of disturbing murders. She might be 0-for-5 in Oscar nominations, but don’t be surprised if Amy Adams picks up an Emmy instead for this performance.

The free preview ends Monday, so plan your weekend accordingly. And if you like what you see, then consider adding HBO or Cinemax to your account today.

Other hot titles to watch this weekend:


Season four doesn’t start until August 12, but that just means there’s still plenty of time to catch up on three seasons’ worth of this Dwayne Johnson comedy.


You know what else returns August 12? Season three of Issa Rae’s Insecure(!) Something tells us Issa Rae should feel confident that the third time’s a charm at the next Golden Globes.

Girls Trip

If you want a two-hour vacay, then go on this crazy, New Orleans adventure with Tiffany Haddish, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Big Little Lies

Season two of this Emmy-winning hit won’t air until 2019, but patience is a price worth paying given that MERYL STREEP is joining the cast.


Or, if you take your family dramas with a bit more corporate intrigue, then Succession might be right for you.
