Warner Bros. Discovery has officially unveailed its new streaming service, Max, and when we can expect to see it.
Ever since the merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery Communications happened in 2022, a new streaming service has been on the horizon. Now, the official announcement has happened, and we can expect to see “Max” replace “HBO Max” on May 23 of this year beginning in the U.S.
The new service will offer three tiers of service.
- Max Ad-Lite | $9.99/month or $99.99/year
2 concurrent streams, 1080p resolution, no offline downloads, 5.1 surround sound quality
- Max Ad Free | $15.99/month or $149.99/year
2 concurrent streams, 1080 resolution, 30 offline downloads, 5.1 surround sound quality
- Max Ultimate Ad Free | $19.99/month or $199.99/year
4 concurrent streams, up to 4K UHD resolution, 100 offline downloads, Dolby Atmos sound quality
Existing HBO Max subscribers will have access to Max at the same price as their HBO Max subscription and can visit http://help.hbomax.com/
Discovery Plus will continue to offered as its own service. It does not sound as though all of its content will arrive on Max immediately, so checking between the two services will still be required for some.
Expect everything to change on May 23, 2023.
