HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ Series Is Free to Watch This Weekend for Juneteenth

Susana Polo, writing for Polygon:

All nine episodes of HBO’s conversation-defining Watchmen television series, a spiritual sequel to the influential Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic, will be available free this weekend.

HBO will make the series available for non-subscribers to stream on HBO.com, as well as through Free on Demand services, starting Friday June 19, through Sunday June 21. The company’s press release stated that the move was “an extension of the network’s content offering highlighting Black experiences, voices and storytellers. […] HBO is proud to offer all nine episodes for free of this timely, poignant series that explores the legacy of systemic racism in America.”

I watched Watchmen as it came out, and really enjoyed it. Nice move by HBO making it free for everyone this weekend. (Via Shawn King.)
