As the weather cools down, most of us will spend a little more time in the house than we did over the summer. With that in mind, we can’t think of a better time to sign up for some of the best streaming platforms so you can cozy up and watch your favorite TV shows and movies in the comfort of your home. And as of Friday, September 17, HBO Max is offering an amazing deal on its subscription plan, giving new and returning customers 50% off its regular price tag of $14.99. That’s right, for a limited time you can get six months of premium, ad-free HBO Max for $7.49 per month.
HBO Max is a must-have streaming service, and with this limited-time offer, eligible consumers will get discounted access to HBO Max’s ad-free monthly plan for half a year with the ability to cancel at any time. Unlike other streaming services, HBO Max has never offered new customers a free trial, and this is the first real discount we’ve seen on HBO’s streaming service.
There’s also a very good reason for this new offer. Per Variety, as of Thursday, September 15, you can no longer access HBO Max via Amazon Prime Video Channels, and HBO is anticipating the loss of up to 5 million subscribers. To avoid losing out, the company is offering this rare 50% discount. This offer is valid through September 26, 2021.
Designed to compete with services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus, HBO Max quickly positioned itself as a premier platform over the past year and a half, releasing highly anticipated films such as Wonder Woman 1984, Mortal Kombat, The Suicide Squad, In The Heights, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and more.
Until today, the ad-free version of HBO Max was priced at $14.99 a month, with the ad-supported version costing $9.99/month. However, with the new discount, you can buy the ad-free version of HBO Max, which is the version we recommend, for about $7.50/month.
With this ad-free version of HBO Max, you have access to Warner Bros 2021 movie premieres on the very same day they hit theaters at no extra cost and can stream and download other movies and programs in HD like Harry Potter, The Wire, White Lotus, and The Sopranos to watch at any time. Use this deal as an opportunity to also watch upcoming films — all set to be released this year, such as Malignant, Cry Macho, The Many Saints of Newark, and Matrix 4 without having to go to the movie theater. Some programming is even available in 4K UHD.
The same-day streaming of theatrical releases has certainly been one of its biggest draws during the pandemic, and this price drop couldn’t have come at a better time. Days ago, HBO removed itself from Amazon’s channel line-up, leaving millions of users who subscribed through Amazon without access to its programming. Wondering if it’s worth it? Check out our recent HBO Max streaming review.
Again, this $7.49/month for six months HBO Max subscription deal is available to new and returning customers. Be sure to sign up before September 26!
