HBO Max Plans and Prices
HBO Max offers two tiers of programming: With Ads at $9.99 and Ad-Free at $14.99. So what is the difference? Both offer the same access to the extensive VOD library filled with movies, your favorite television shows, and the brilliant original content HBO is known for.
The Ad-Free plan is $14.99/month and gives you complete access to all of AT&T Warner Media’s television programs. It includes HBO’s original shows, top rated movies, and the ability to stream new theatrical releases on the same day they premiere. It allows you to stream up to 3 devices at the same time and create up to 5 personalized profiles for your account. Only the Ad-Free plan allows streaming in 4k UHD and the ability to download content for offline viewing.
The affordability of the $9.99/month With Ads Plan provides the same access to the VOD library by displaying ads during viewing, minus the excitement of same day theatrical releases along with being able to stream up to 3 devices in SD with 5 personalized profiles. One of the goals of HBO Max is to provide the viewer with the best experience. Viewers can expect a maximum of 4 minutes per hour of viewing. In another win for viewers, HBO Max set a cap for the number of times a commercial can be shown each day.
Choosing the right plan for you will depend on what you value most. If you are like many others and subscribe to multiple streaming services, the $9.99 plan gives you most of the access you want without adding to your monthly entertainment budget. Or perhaps the excitement of having access to new theatrical releases and the ability to to stream some content in 4K UHD at $14.99/month is just what you need. Whichever you choose, you will enjoy the hours of entertainment that HBO Max provides.
