The only way to watch The Last of Us for free on HBO Max is through a 7-day trial via Hulu and Amazon Prime and through a 30-day trial with Roku.

UK viewers, unfortunately, cannot watch The Last of Us Season 1 for free, as Now TV does not currently has a free trial.

Of course, you’ll need to know exactly what time The Last of Us TV show airs on HBO Max in order to get the most out of your trial.

The trial to HBO Max via Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Roku is limited and won’t last the entire length of the first season. This means, at most, you’ll be able to watch a handful of episodes before your trial runs out.

Alternatively, you can wait until every episode has aired and then get a free trial to binge-watch the entire season.
