true blood

Owners of the Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles can watch the first episode of HBO's True Blood's current seventh season for free from now until Thursday.

The episode is also the first in the last season for the long running adult horror drama (and when we say "adult", we mean it; True Blood has tons of graphic violence and sex that are definitely not made to be seen by the kids). Microsoft is offering the episode for free viewing without requiring an HBO Go subscription.

Microsoft previously offered the first episode of the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, another HBO series, for free for a limited time in April. Since then, Microsoft made the wise decision to ditch the Xbox Live Gold requirement for accessing its Xbox media apps, allowing owners of both consoles to view apps like HBO Go without an additional fee beyond the ones for each app.

What do you think of this latest freebie Microsoft and HBO are offering to Xbox owners and will it get some of them to sign up for the HBO cable channel?
