No more HBO Max across the Atlantic in two weeks. It is not yet known when it will be the turn of the Netherlands. But in 2024, the streaming service will also shapeshift with us anyway. And the recently revealed prices in the United States have already lifted a corner of the veil. Whether this is a model for the Netherlands remains to be seen. There were some differences between the two countries in the old subscriptions.
The acquisition of HBO by Warner Bros. does not necessarily mean bad news for fans of quality movies and series. In addition to the extremely original name, there were seven mega reveals. In addition, from now on Discovery programs will also be part of the offer. But it remains to be seen if the new ‘Max’ is also good news for the portfolio. HBO Max Holland preferred to remain as vague as possible.
Cost details including deals will be revealed closer to launch ????

Translation: we can whistle at our lifetime discount. But how much exactly does a subscription to the new Max cost in the United States?
That’s what Max costs in the United States
The switched streaming platform from HBO and Warner Bros. will launch in the United States with three different subscriptions, two of which already existed. If it is also the case in the Netherlands, you will still pay 5.99 euros per month (cheap) or 7.99 euros per month (exclusive). Whether this is the case remains to be seen.
A new ad-supported subscription. it costs $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year in the United States. With that, you can see everything, but not without ads. These commercials can appear before, during and after the broadcast. In total, the ad lasts about 4 minutes per hour of broadcast. And no, you can’t skip the movies.
An ad-free subscription it costs $15.99 per month or $149.99 per year. This allows viewers to use Max outside of the United States as well. These subscribers used to be able to download shows for offline viewing. But now you only get this option with the most expensive and recently introduced payment plan.
The new ‘Ultimate Ad-Free’ subscription it costs $19.99 per month or $199.99 per year. These users get up to a hundred downloads to stream movies and series later without internet. This paid plan allows you to watch Max on four screens at once, in 4K UHD or Dolby Atmos (where available). All ad-free, of course. Users will be able to enjoy the features that come with a more expensive subscription for another six months.
This is what the new HBO Max looks like
In addition to the third subscription option, the first images of the streaming platform were also sent to the world. But to be honest, next to the logo, almost nothing changes. Check out what Max’s app will look like in the gallery below.
