You still need to have cable, though

Ahead of one of its biggest premieres ever, HBO has announced that it will be offering a free preview weekend from Friday, April 22 to Friday April 24.

This means that those with cable boxes but who don't subscribe to either HBO or Cinemax will be able to indulge in all their content for three days, including the premieres of Game of ThronesSilicon Valley and Veep on Sunday. Members of the Beyhive (Beyonce's fans) will also be able to watch her new special, Lemonade, airing on the network Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET.

Other highlights of the weekend include access to World Championship Boxing fights (Golovkin vs Wade and Gonzalez vs Arroyo) and a replay of the network's original film, Confirmation, which is an account of the controversial nomination and Senate hearings for Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991.

Over on Cinemax, fans of Banshee will be able to catch up on the series and watch a variety of films that will be airing over the three days.

Those looking to tune in specifically for the premiere of HBO's three major series on Sunday can do so starting at 9 p.m. ET with Game of Thrones. Silicon Valley will follow at 10:00 and Veep will round it off at 10:30.
