HBO Max will be airing in the US on May 27 and viewers are keen to find out more about the new streaming service. Sadly the service will not be available in the UK from the same day, but there is a possibility it will move overseas in the future. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about how much it costs to subscribe to the new streaming service.
How much does HBO Max cost?
The new service will cost $14.99 per month and this is the same price as the already launched HBO Now service.
This can be considered a good deal as the new service will include all the HBO classics, plus entirely new content.
HBO had launched a pre-order offer which means those who sign up before the launch date receives $3 off the subscription for a whole year.
This offer is available on the HBO Max website up until the streaming service has officially launched.
For those who are already HBO subscribers, the service is being offered for free, with some AT&T customers getting a free trial.
