CNET’s evaluate of HBO Max displays that till the service resolves these points, HBO feels prefer it’s nonetheless a piece in progress. 

Like rivals Netflix and Disney Plus, HBO Max has a sprawling catalog of hit reveals and motion pictures, plus a big-budget slate of unique originals. HBO Max, although, is the costliest of the bunch. New subscribers can join and pay a easy $15 a month subscription after a weeklong free trial. That is the identical worth HBO already prices for its common channel on most pay-TV suppliers and for its preexisting standalone streaming service, HBO Now. 

However when you’re already paying for HBO in some kind, the quantity you pay for Max — or whether or not you need to pay something further in any respect — properly, it is difficult.

For one, HBO Max is not out there on a few of the hottest streaming units both. Neither Roku nor Amazon Hearth TV have offers to assist HBO Max — collectively, they characterize an eye-popping 70% of the streaming units within the nation. And if HBO Max customers are something like individuals who stream Netflix, the overwhelming majority of viewing hours can be on televisions. Ask Quibi in order for you a way of how shoppers really feel after they cannot stream big-budget programming to their TVs. 

HBO Max says it has apps for Roku and Hearth TV prepared to go. However the service should work out offers with each firms first.  

To entice you to provide it a strive, HBO Max has padded itself with extra content material than you may discover on the common HBO channel and HBO Now.

AT&T, which owns HBO as a part of its WarnerMedia TV-and-film division, has been pouring billions of {dollars} into its budgets for unique programming and into costly offers to stream blockbuster motion pictures from DC, Harry PotterStudio Ghibli and the Criterion Assortment, in addition to in style reveals like Associates, The Huge Bang IdeaRick and Morty, Physician Who and new episodes of Journey Time. (There is a deep dive into the reveals and films on Max close to the top of this text.)

To make it simpler to seek out these franchises, the HBO Max app has hubs primarily based on a lot of them, so you possibly can rapidly bounce into HBO’s programming, DC’s or Ghibli’s. It is also taking a extra curated method to surfacing content material to look at in contrast with Netflix’s data-driven suggestions.

HBO Max’s so-called Max Originals will supply new reveals and films unavailable wherever else. The most recent high-profile unique is the fabled “Snyder reduce” of the 2017 film Justice League. Costing greater than $30 million to remake, this alternate edit of the DC film by director Zack Snyder will stream on the service in 2021. Past that, the service has six originals at launch, together with anthology sequence Love Life starring Anna Kendrick. HBO Max will add 11 extra originals over the summer time, together with the Aug. 6 premiere of Seth Rogen’s comedy movie An American Pickle. 

However one extremely anticipated unique is lacking at launch. A Associates reunion particular was anticipated to function the service’s marquee unique on day one. However like most issues on the earth, HBO Max’s unique productions have been disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Confined to their properties, folks throughout the nation are streaming way more, however the novel coronavirus and its respiratory illness, COVID-19, have additionally shut down tv productions globally. HBO Max has stated it is delivering 95% of the brand new reveals and films it had deliberate for launch and shortly thereafter. 

However the Associates reunion particular is not coming anytime quickly. The corporate was within the midst of recreating the sitcom’s set to host its six stars in entrance of a stay viewers in early March, when lockdowns and social distancing shut it down. The corporate now says it is aiming to movie by the top of the summer time, saying the Max staff is “dedicated to creating it a extremely particular expertise for followers.”

HBO Max’s $15-a-month worth matches the price of HBO Now and for HBO’s common channel once you get it by means of most pay-TV suppliers. By comparability, Disney Plus is $7 a month and Netflix’s hottest tier is $13 a month.

For model new HBO clients, pricing is simple. You simply join, and pay the $15 month-to-month value after a seven-day free trial. Early subsequent 12 months, HBO Max will add a brand new tier that’s cheaper every month however consists of commercials to assist the low cost. 

However when you already pay for HBO, the query of whether or not you get a free improve to HBO Max has no easy reply. Some individuals who have already got an everyday HBO subscription or HBO Now will get Max for no further value, however not everybody.

So as so that you can get the automated improve to Max, HBO must strike a take care of the corporate that is already billing you for HBO, whether or not it is a cable-TV firm like Constitution or a digital supplier like Apple. HBO Max has been ramping up these offers, and there is a rising record of suppliers which can be letting their HBO clients improve to Max. (See the complete record under.)

HBO Max was nonetheless placing offers after launch. In the course of the service’s launch day, Comcast and HBO Max introduced that the largest cable supplier within the nation would unlock HBO Max for its Xfinity X1 and Flex clients who’ve present HBO subscriptions at no added value. Comcast was one of many obvious gaps in HBO Max’s distribution at launch earlier that day. 

However HBO Max does not have offers with each supplier. If you happen to’re in that boat, you may be pressured to decide on: both pay twice — one invoice for normal HBO and one other for HBO Max — or cancel your present HBO subscription to re-sign up for Max. 

One other huge gap? HBO Max does not supply 4K decision nor excessive dynamic vary picture high quality at launch.

HBO’s present standalone streaming service, HBO Now, additionally prices $15 a month. Although HBO Now will proceed to function, HBO Max will basically substitute it. 

HBO Now subscribers are welcome to stay with that service, however they’re going to basically be paying the identical quantity for much less programming. HBO Max could have all the identical reveals and films on HBO Now plus an enormous catalog of licensed programming and unique originals. On cellular, the HBO Max app successfully changed the HBO Now app by means of computerized software program upgrades on Apple and Android telephones and tables.         

In contrast with rival streaming providers launching earlier than HBO Max, that pricing could really feel steep to many shoppers. Disney Plus is $7 a month, and Apple TV Plus is $5. Each are providing offers that may reduce the value additional or are offering alternatives for prolonged free intervals lasting as much as a 12 months. Apple, for instance, is making a gift of a 12 months’s subscription to anybody who’s bought an Apple machine since early September. And Disney arrange a take care of Verizon so any of the provider’s cellular subscribers get a 12 months free.

HBO Max shall be out there on all kinds of units, together with telephones, tablets, the online, related TVs and recreation consoles. 

However two essential streaming units did not have HBO Max apps at launch. Neither Roku and Amazon Hearth TV units supported HBO Max, though these units characterize the overwhelming majority of streaming units within the US. Researcher Parks Associates estimates almost 70% of put in streaming-TV units within the nation are both Roku or Amazon Hearth TV merchandise. 

Earlier in Might, AT&T incoming CEO John Stankey warned that Amazon’s Hearth TV merchandise could not have an HBO Max app. “I am happy to say we will be in nearly all app shops, or possibly one exception. It appears like we will not be within the Amazon Hearth app retailer when all of that is stated and accomplished,” he stated.

The service has confirmed assist for the next units and platforms:

  • Most Apple units that may stream video will assist HBO Max — iPhone, iPad, iPod Contact, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD. Nonetheless, clients with second- and third-generation Apple TV fashions might want to stream HBO Max content material from their iPhone or iPad to their TV with AirPlay.

What product options does HBO Max have? 

In a long-anticipated characteristic for anybody streaming HBO Go, HBO Max has downloads for its cellular apps. Sadly, like most issues with HBO Max, the corporate does not have a transparent reply for whether or not there are limitations on the quantity of programming you possibly can obtain.

“We do not have a crisp reply for you on what number of downloads shall be allowed however it should be a really snug quantity for most individuals,” Andy Forssell, the product chief of HBO Max, stated. “The restrict will most likely be how a lot house you could have in your machine versus our restrict, and that can liberalize over time.”

For HBO Now members, HBO Max robotically replaces the HBO Now app by means of a software program replace. 

However there is a draw back to the transition from HBO Now and HBO Go to HBO Max: HBO Max will not protect any of your watch historical past when you swap from an present HBO streaming account. So your personalised suggestions begin with a clear slate, and HBO Max will not know, for instance, when you’ve already watched each episode of Sport of Thrones thrice or when you’re midway by means of the film Joker and need to choose again up the place you left off. 

One other lacking component: HBO Max does not supply 4K decision nor excessive dynamic vary picture high quality at launch.
