Final Verdict

As long as AT&T doesn’t get greedy and scare away customers with a series of rapid price increases, HBO Max will probably be successful. HBO Max can be to streaming what HBO was to cable in the 80s and 90s. HBO was always somewhat pricey, but it always delivered high quality, award-winning shows and movies. As long as the producers at HBO continue to make great decisions, HBO Max will succeed. The rest of the service’s perks are just icing on the cake.
