Pokemon has kept fans entertained for years now, and it seems like the series is in more demand than ever before. Due to the ongoing pandemic, well over a billion people around the world are shelter in place to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. In the U.S., that means families are buckling down to keep one another healthy, and Amazon Prime just made it way easier to watch Pokemon's live-action debut.
Earlier today, Amazon made an announcement in tangent with HBO about its movie and TV catalog. The pair have come together to share select series free with any Amazon user in the U.S., and HBO decided to knock down any pay walls between fans and Pokemon: Detective Pikachu.
According to the report, fans in the States can watch all of the live-action flick for free; The only thing you need to tune in is an Amazon account and steady wifi to buffer the movie. If you have all that, you are good to go catch your next Quarantine Viewing Party with family and friends... digitally, that is.
The Pokemon flick is not the only once which HBO sent over. The network has made films like The Lego Movie 2 as well as Smallfoot available via Amazon. Episodes of Big Little Lies, Barry, Ballers, Silicon Valley, and even Sesame Street are open to watch. This limited time offer will help keep more families at home during this public health crisis, so you can check out the full list of Amazon-HBO titles below:
