A variety of new streaming TV options are launching at fast pace. If we look back, these services were not that common, but now they have become everyone’s preferred way of accessing video content, live or on demand, across the US. With an array of subscriptions to choose from, almost every consumer can find a service that caters to their unique entertainment needs.

Since the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, the streaming trend has only accelerated. Majority of people sign up for a streaming service because they like the idea of easy and instant access to TV entertainment.

And, if you wish to binge a seemingly never-ending world of movies and TV shows, what could satiate your entertainment needs better than HBO Max? When you choose HBO Max, you can be sure that it has something in store for the entire family.

What is HBO Max?

HBO Max is the widely known and consumed American subscription video on demand streaming service owned by AT&T via WarnerMedia―launched in a little over a year ago. The service promises to offer all of HBO content including blockbuster movies, binge-worthy TV series, exclusive Max Originals, plus content from third-party distributors, and costs $14.99 per month. That is not it―with unlimited access to 10,000 hours of premium content, it has got something for every member in your family.

The best part is, HBO Max now debuts movies the same day as released in theaters―that too at no extra cost. How exciting is that? So, are you a fan of exclusive TV series or movies? Well, you should consider subscribing to HBO Max. Once you sign up for the service, you’ll be ready to sit back and relax in your oh-so-comfy loungewear and explore one of the largest and richest video libraries in existence.

HBO Max will allow you to download the content you want so you can view it offline. Not only does it allow parents to control content, but it offers customizable personal profiles and shared viewing.

The Ad-Supported HBO Max Plan

If you feel $14.99 per month for HBO Max subscription will break your bank, we have good news for you: the streaming service has recently launched an ad-supported subscription at $9.99 per month. This simply means subscribers will save over 30% on their subscription. Isn’t that great?

With the ad-supported plan subscribers will be able to access exclusive content from HBO, Turner Classic Movies, Warner Bros., DC Entertainment, Cartoon Network, and more. As well as the exciting lineup of new original programming―without ads. Yes. But with all other programming subscribers will see ads― which over time will become more personalized. The ad-supported tier offers the streaming video quality of 1080p―quite like Netflix does it.

The drawback of this affordable subscription option is it doesn’t offer the option to download content for offline viewing nor do subscribers get same-day access to Warner Bros. films debuting in the theatres.

But, all in all the ad-supported plan is a pretty worthwhile option―especially designed to give more consumers a chance to enjoy premium entertainment via streaming―people who don’t mind a few minutes of ads every hour if they get to pay 30% less every month.
