HBO Max Plans and Pricing
HBO Max launched on May 27, 2020. The service hit the market with a lot of fan anticipation of better, lower-cost access to HBO’s hit content. Additionally, the service promised a wealth of content unavailable anywhere else, not including HBO’s original programs like Game of Thrones. In fact, soon after launch, we reviewed its content and found that HBO Max was easily beating competitors in regard to the quality of its content library, even if it didn’t have the largest library around.
With that in mind, how much is an HBO Max subscription today?
Plans and Pricing in the United States
You can purchase HBO Max in the US in one of several ways.
- First, there’s a solo subscription directly from the HBO Max website. This will cost you $14.99 per month.
- The second-best method to get HBO Max is through an AT&T TV subscription. It’s included as part of the package if you purchase the Choice or Ultimate packages.
- The third method to get HBO Max is an as add-on channel with other live TV streaming services. You can add HBO Max to your Hulu + Live TV or YouTube TV packages for $14.99 per month.
HBO Max is also available through Amazon Prime Channels or Apple TV Channels. The cost, again, is $14.99 per month for both routes. With these options, you can also simply download the app and log in to your existing HBO Max account if you’ve created an account directly with HBO Max through the official website.

Free Trial for HBO Max Plans
The “free trial” trend is starting to phase out. HBO Max is an example of this. The service offers no free trial, regardless of which method you use to create an account. If you want to give HBO Max a try, you’ll need to pay the cost of one month upfront. That said, HBO Max still maintains the industry-standard month-to-month subscription model. So the most you’ll pay if you don’t like the service is $14.99 per month.

Renewing HBO Max Plans and Subscriptions
Your HBO Max subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period (month-to-month). If you’re subscribed to HBO Max through another service, like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, you’ll need to go into the settings to cancel your subscription. With AT&T TV, you cannot cancel the HBO Max subscription as it’s included as part of the package and not considered a separate add-on to the service.
