HBO Max is finally delivering on its long-promised ad-supported version, but there will be caveats.
HBO Max With Ads, as it will be known, will cost $9.99 a month or $99 for an annual subscription. The company is promising only four minutes of ads per viewing hour, making it the lowest amount of ad time amongst all ad-supported services.
The new tier is not without its drawbacks, however. The service will be restricted from accessing some content such as the day-and-date movie releases that Warner Bros. is doing throughout 2021. There will also be no access to 4K streams and picture resolution will be capped at 1080p.
Even without the latest releases, there is still a lot of content available for DC fans including both films and television series. But with The Suicide Squad due on Aug. 6, you may want to think twice about going up to the ad-free tier for a bit.
Signup for HBO Max With Ads is already available in the U.S. and can be found on the HBO Max signup page.
