HBO hive assemble. The popular US cable channel is giving us all access to many of its most iconic series to watch for free.

With countries all around the world in lockdown due to coronavirus, cinemas have temporarily closed and theatres have shut for the time being. With that in mind, the entertainment industry has come up with multiple ways to keep us busy as we self-isolate. New movies are being added to streaming services early and you can watch live musicals from your own home.

You can also currently watch Warner Bros. films, such as Crazy, Stupid, Love and Pokémon Detective Pikachu without paying via the cable channel. Not to mention, a whole host of critically-acclaimed documentaries and docuseries too.
