HBO Max is announcing its first price increase since the streamer was launched in May of 2020, and it’s effective immediately. The new price of the HBO Max ad-free monthly subscription in the U.S. will rise from $14.99 to $15.99.
In a statement, Warner Brothers Discovery, the company which owns HBO Max said, “This price increase of one dollar will allow us to continue to invest in providing even more culture-defining programming and improving our customer experience for all users.”
They’ve also made several cutbacks in content in order to save money, cancelling the original series “Minx” and “The Nevers.” Plus, they’ve removed several shows including “Westworld,” “Raised by Wolves,” “FBoy Island,” “Legendary,” “Finding Magic Mike,” “Head of the Class” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife.” Those will be licensed to other partners.
If you have that ad supported HBO Max plan that’s $9.99 a month, that price stays the same
