Stream the series debut of HBO’s Ballers in HD for free

HBO’s new original series Ballers premiered earlier this week. This show stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and is garnering strong comparisons to Entourage, which is not bad company.

Looking at the lives of former and current football players, the show follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore as he gets his life on track in retirement while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football.

Don’t have an HBO subscription but want to check out this new show? The entire first episode of Ballers is now available to be streamed via Facebook for free. Make sure you’re signed into Facebook and then just head to this page to start watching. Heads up, there’s an awkward intro that plays before the episode so you may want to fast forward past that, unless you want to watch The Rock make some cringe-worthy comments about “love making.” Sign-up for a 30-day HBO Now trial to catch a few more episodes for free.

The series premier of HBO’s The Brink is also available to be streamed for free on Facebook.

Earlier last month HBO NOW streaming service arrived on Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad. During the initial launch period Apple users could sign up for a free one month trial. Well, that boat has officially sailed. You can’t get a free month anymore, but HBO has begun a new offer of one week free trials.

HBO-now-apple-tv-iphone-ipad

Just sign-up for HBO Now using Apple TV, iPhone, or iPad and you’ll lock-in the offer. Once the free trial expires you’ll be charged the standard $14.99 per month rate. This standalone service is perfect for cord cutters since it doesn’t require cable service or a contract. HBO NOW allows you to watch HBO’s extensive library of original TV shows including Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and VEEP, as well as comedy specials and full-length movies.

Need an Apple TV to watch these shows on your big screen? Grab an Apple refurbished unit with a one year warranty for $59 or in new condition for $67.87 from Amazon (slightly less at Groupon if you want to go that route). expand full story
