HBO Max with ads, but cheaper
HBO Max debuted on May 27, 2020 and is still only available in the US and Canada. The rest of the world should continue to use HBO Go, which let’s face it, is not just mouse slaps anymore, but provides an offensive picture quality for decency. That is why we are all waiting for the new streaming service from Warner Media It will appear, among other things, in Poland. It also appears that before it reaches us, it will be available in at least two subscription versions. HBO has confirmed that in the second quarter of 2021 it will provide customers with a cheaper package with ads and some other restrictions.
Currently, HBO Max costs $ 14.99 in the US and is the most expensive of the Big Three streaming services. Disney + will go up from March 26 to $ 7.99 a month, and Netflix is available from $ 8.99, although you actually have to pay $ 17.99 for the premium package (4K, 4 screens). That’s definitely one of the reasons for less interest in this service, according to end-of-2020 data, HBO Max got just over 17 million people, while Disney + recently bragged about hitting the limit. 100 million users. However, it must be remembered that this service, although not available in Poland, has a much larger regional reach than HBO Max.
