Max Pricing: Tiers Include $9.99, $14.99, & $19.99
The pricing tiers for Max have been revealed for the launch on May 23rd. Get ready to fork over your cash for ad-free, 4K streaming.
Max just finished up their big launch presentation, and we are here with all the details on the pricing. Looks like we will be dealing with three tiers: $9.99 a month, or $99.99 a year for the Max ad-lite version. That will include two concurrent streams, 1080p resolution, no offline downloads, 5.1 surround sound quality. Next is the $14.99 a month, $149.99 a year tier, Max ad-free. That version includes no ads, and all of the stuff in the first tier, with 30 added downloads. Finally, a $19.99 a month, $199.99 a year tier called Max Ultimate Ad-Free. That includes four concurrent streams, up to 4K UHD resolution, 100 offline downloads, and Dolby Atmos sound quality. So, you have to pay the most for 4K. That sucks. Existing HBO Max subscribers will have access to Max at the same price, and the current plan for six months. More below.
