A new HBO initiative designed to help keep people stuck at home due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has led to an array of shows and movies being offered for free. While the selection isn’t robust, there’s one thing that might especially be of interest. A person can go through HBO Go or HBO Now on April 3, 2020 to start a free Detective Pikachu stream. The official press release also says eventually other services, like say Hulu, will also offer it for free.
