These Services Are Free During Quarantine.
To encourage quarantine, many online companies offer their services for free. For example, HBO made 500 hours of entertainment free during quarantine. Finding everything yourself can be tricky, however, so I made this guide. Let’s start.
I will divide the services into categories like Entertainment, Education, Fitness, etc. to make it easier for you to choose one. Also, some of these services are only available to US customers, however you can easily bypass this limitation using a VPN. I will update this list as I discover new services with free offers for this period.
