Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
HBO is known for its groundbreaking blockbuster entertainment options as a premium TV channel. HBO Max gives you on-demand access to HBO’s current shows and a large supply of additional content that includes HBO and non-HBO shows, hit movies, comedy specials, and more. It also offers the ability to stream any of its content on up to three devices simultaneously.
At $14.99 per month for its top plan, HBO Max is priced similarly to Netflix. That’s a fair deal for one of our favorite streaming services — as we noted in our HBO Max review, what you’re really paying for is the quality of HBO’s content — but it never hurts to save a few bucks. Let’s take a look at the best deals and discounts HBO Max has to offer.
HBO Max debuted at $14.99 per month, and that was the end of the story — there were no other HBO Max plans. Now, though, HBO Max’s pricing structure is a little different. In June 2021, HBO Max unveiled a cheaper tier with ads for $9.99 a month. It leaves out some stuff you’ll find only on the more expensive plan: You can’t watch same-day premieres in 2021, and you can’t watch any 4K titles (HBO Max has only a few movies available in 4K as of this writing). Downloading content for offline viewing is also permitted only with the $14.99 plan.
When HBO Max debuted, some lucky people found out they could get it without paying extra. If you already have an HBO subscription through one of many providers, you likely have access to HBO Max at no extra cost. The list of providers is too long to include here, but you can find it on HBO Max’s website.
These are some of the most exciting deals for HBO Max. Quite a few involve bundling with AT&T service, and that’s no accident: AT&T owns Warner Media, which is HBO’s parent company, at least for now.
HBO Max was brand new in 2020, and it didn’t offer any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals. That could change in the coming years. As the big days approach, check back with us to monitor HBO Max Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
There are no active discount codes and coupons for HBO Max. When HBO Max has been offered at a discounted rate – typically $11.99 per month for the first year – it has generally done so without the need for discount codes or coupons. In those cases, new customers that subscribed through HBO’s site during the discount periods just had to click the “Get the Deal” button for the discount to be applied. We’ll keep this page updated with any such deals happening in the future.
Keeping up-to-date on the latest deals can be a hassle. Fortunately, we do that hard work for you. Just bookmark this page and check back every month or so for the best discounts our experts can dig up. That way you can get the best discounts and still have time to enjoy your cord cutter lifestyle. After all, would you rather be combing the internet for deals or watching HBO’s latest hit shows?
If you have an HBO subscription, then check whether you already have access to HBO Max for free. If you are not currently an HBO subscriber and you’re sure HBO Max is the right service for you, then check out the options on the list above. Strike while the iron is hot, since many of these offers won’t be available forever.
