- New Streaming Service: HBO Max Subscription for $12/mo
New ad-free streaming service launches May 27 called HBO Max.
Pre-order and pay $12/mo, rate locked-in for one year.
After one year, the rate goes up to $15/mo.
Or, some AT&T customers get HBO Max for free.
It is free for those with AT&T Unlimited Elite Wireless, Internet 1000, DirecTV Premier, U-verse U400/U450, and AT&T TV Now/Premier.
HBO Max include all shows and movies on HBO, including original content, documentaries and specials.
Last Week Tonight, Westworld, Big Little Lies, and all HBO shows are included.
Also includes some old popular streaming shows like Friends, Big Bang Theory, and South Park.
This is a deal for someone who uses streaming TV services, not cable service.
If you have cable, HBO Max may not be of value to you.
Regular HBO is available on cable which includes HBO Go streaming service.
If you don't have cable, HBO Max will replace HBO Now as a standalone streaming service that runs on the HBO app on smart TVs and other smart devices.
HBO Max will include shows from WarnerMedia's brands, which includes shows made by Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, DC, CNN, Turner, Looney Tunes, and more.
So HBO Max is the same as HBO Now and HBO Go, plus some old TV shows.
On a related note, for those considering cancelling cable and switching to streaming live TV service, we recommend YouTube TV.
At $50/mo, it is cheaper than some cable services, very easy to use, and is the only live TV service with unlimited DVR.
Click a plus (+) button on any show or sports team of interest, and it will record whenever something airs, and keep them for 9 months.
A huge amount of on-demand shows and movies are also included free, from ABC, NBC, TBS, and other on-demand services.
Plus, a family can share the account and watch on their own device at the same time.
While $50/mo is a lot compared to HBO Max, Netflix, Hulu, and others, that is the price for having access to live TV with unlimited DVR, and gives far more new content than non-live TV services.
