AT&T’s brand-new HBO Max streaming service is now live, but if you’re already subscribed to HBO Now, do you get the new Max service for free? That’s what we’re here to help answer. In this guide, you’ll find the answer to “do I get HBO Max with my HBO subscription?” Read on to discover whether or not you will have to pay any extra for HBO Max if you’re already subscribed to HBO Now.
Do I get HBO Max with my HBO subscription?
You should be able to upgrade to the new streaming service for free, but there are some hoops you’ll have to swim through first if it isn’t done automatically. It all depends on how your HBO subscription is set up. Most of you will get HBO Max for free if you’re already subscribed to HBO. Unfortunately, not everyone has been upgraded to the new streaming service at no extra charge. It’s a little confusing. HBO Max is the same price, $14.99 a month, as the other HBO subscriptions. If you find it confusing, try contacting your subscription provider.
If you subscribe to HBO through any of the following providers, you should get the HBO Max upgrade for free, according to Cnet:
- Cox Communications
- Direct through HBO
- YouTube TV
HBO Max can be downloaded in the following places, according to Cnet:
- Android TV
- App Store
- Apple TV
- Google Play (Android devices)
- Samsung Smart TV
- Xbox One
If you cannot upgrade to HBO Max for free, we recommend that you either cancel your current HBO Now subscription, or try to log in via a different device or channel. If you do cancel your current HBO subscription, do subscribe directly with HBO, as this should be the simplest way of accessing the company’s content on all applicable platforms, including HBO Max.
