Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
What’s better than HBO? That’s simple: discounted HBO! If you’re hoping to save money on an HBO subscription, you have come to the right place. Right here on this page, we’re tracking all of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday HBO deals, including Black Friday deals on HBO Max, HBO Now, and any and all other forms of the beloved premium channel.
There are two days this year that we’re really going to be on the lookout for HBO discounts. (We do track HBO deals year round, of course, but some days are bigger than others!) The first of those days is, of course, Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving, the biggest sales of the year will hit. The moment we see any big sales on HBO, we’ll drop them into our ever-growing list below. We won’t just be looking for deals on HBO’s main streaming offering, HBO Max — we’ll also be looking for HBO TV channel deals, HBO bundled deals, and any and all other discount offers that involve HBO. Check back regularly to make sure that you don’t miss anything.
Black Friday isn’t the holiday season’s only massive day of sales and discounts. The digital age has ushered in a new, all-online version of Black Friday: Cyber Monday. Since HBO Max is a streaming service, and since the HBO TV channel is available with many streaming services, we’ll be particularly alert to any digital deals on the biggest day of the year for internet retail. We’re hoping to see some great offers on HBO Max and on HBO add-ons to our favorite live TV streaming services — but only time will tell, so check back often for updates.
HBO is a superb streaming service. It’s one of our absolute favorite streaming options, and anyone who has watched an episode of an HBO original series probably knows why. If you ask the Cordcutting.com staff, nobody — not even Netflix, Disney+, or Hulu — makes better original series than HBO. Even before streaming was a thing, HBO was creating masterpieces like The Wire and The Sopranos. HBO was responsible for ushering in what many critics call the “Golden Age of TV,” and now the service is a big part of what we like to call the “Golden Age of Streaming.” If you’ve read our review, then you don’t need to wonder whether we think you should pounce on the best HBO deal this Black Friday or Cyber Monday — you already know that we recommend it.
And we’re going to do absolutely everything that we can to make it easy for you to identify the best Black Friday or Cyber Monday deal on HBO. Still, you should be prepared to make a few tricky decisions. Why? Because HBO is something that you can sign up for in a whole bunch of different ways.
Our go-to HBO service is HBO Max, the flagship streaming service under the HBO brand. Easy, right? You can sign up for HBO Max directly, and we’re certainly hoping for some HBO Max Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
But things can get tricky. For example, HBO Max is available through other services, including cable, satellite, and streaming TV services. You can add HBO Max to an DIRECTV Stream subscription, for example. And HBO — either the channel, the streaming service HBO Max, or both — is also available through services like Amazon Channels and Sling TV. You can sign up for HBO Max on HBO Max’s website, but also on your Roku or iPhone. It’s great to have options, but this also means we should be on our toes when Black Friday comes. HBO Max could go on sale directly, but we could also see sales that offer discounted HBO Max subscriptions bundled with other, different services.
If you want HBO Max and nothing but HBO Max, things are still easy: Just watch this page for HBO Max Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. But if you’re open to getting more than just HBO Max, you should think ahead of time about what kind of bundle deals you might be interested in. If DIRECTV Stream offers a discounted HBO Max and live TV bundle, for example, you’ll be glad that you read our most recent DIRECTV Stream review.
However you sign up for HBO and/or HBO Max on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we’d suggest you jot down a note somewhere. If you ever feel like canceling HBO Max, you’ll want to know how to do that — and which website to go to in order to get the job done. For example, if you sign up for HBO Max through Amazon Channels, then you’ll have to turn to Amazon (not directly to HBO) to cancel, too. Make a note now and save yourself a headache later.
Finally, we have one last important piece of advice: Check back early and check back often to make sure that you don’t miss any deals. We’ll be updating this page in the run-up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as well as all day on both days.
Gosh, we love Black Friday and Cyber Monday. When you love streaming and saving as much as we do, these are two of the best days of the year. Thanks for celebrating with us, and be sure to track our updates on this page and all of our other Black Friday deals pages. Stay tuned to our social media pages, too, to make sure that you don’t miss a thing. Good luck, happy holidays, and go get those savings!
HBO and HBO Max are not available as a Sling add on—they never have been.
If I sign up for HBO Max, do I get HBO as well or do I have to sign up for each one separately?
Everything that’s on HBO is also on HBO Max! If you want to add HBO as a channel to your current TV plan, you’ll have to go through your TV provider (you can usually get a deal for both the channel version and HBO Max together, but it depends on the provider). If it’s just about which shows are available, though, don’t worry: It’s all on HBO Max 🙂
This page is VERY excited for HBO Max BF deals when there aren’t any and the day is almost over. MAYBE Cyber Monday, but it doesn’t seem likely as EVERYONE is shopping from home this year so every day is cyber Monday.
Oh well, maybe Disney+. Already plan on Hulu $1.99 and Sling B2G1.
Mostly just commenting b/c it’s back up and I can. 🙂 Oh, and I was >thisclose< to signing back up to cable tv today but I'm still on a promotion and the Sling deal will get me thru.
