Can I give read-only access to a private repo (from a developer account)?

Can I give read-only access to my private repo, to someone who is not a collaborator at present? Can I share a url, or add someone as a read-only collaborator? I don’t want to give fork/clone/download rights.

Based on the official GitHub Help  article regarding user-repositories, only collaborators and repository owners are capable of viewing private repositories.

Hope this helped!
