HBO Max is shaking things up, and relaunching as the ‘MAX’ streaming network.
This is only going to be a good thing. Read on to find out why.
HBO Max is one of those streaming services I have, but never think about watching.
It comes FREE with my phone service. So, I have had HBO Max on my phone and TV, but I have never even thought about opening the app.
That is, until a couple weeks ago.
I decided to binge The Last Of Us on HBO Max, and I became obsessed.
The Last Of Us binge turned into a Succession binge, and now HBO Max is pretty much the main streaming service I watch.
Side Note: If you haven’t watched The Last Of Us, you MUST!! Hang in there through the first episode — when you won’t know what the hell is going on — and you will be hooked by the middle of episode 2.
Well, now HBO Max is combining with Discover+ to bring us double the content, and check this out —
You will still get all of your favorite HBO shows and movies, but you will also get all the Discover+ content.
Shows like Fixer Upper, Dr. Pimple Popper, and Property Brothers are now going to be available to stream alongside shows like The Last Of Us, House of the Dragon, and Succession.
Now currently, HBO Max hits up your bank account for about $16 a month.
According to IGN, once the HBO Max / Discover merger happens, they will move to a tiered payment schedule.
We don’t currently know exactly what that means, but we’re soon going to find out.
‘Max’ is set to launch on May 23rd.
