HBO Max is HBO's newest streaming service, replacing HBO Now and HBO GO. Unfortunately, the service has fallen in line with some of it's top competitors and have decided to no longer offer an HBO Max free trial. This came recently when HBO Max and Warner Bros teamed up to launch all 2021 movie premieres on the service.
Don't get to discouraged, there is still a way to get a week free of HBO Max with a slight workaround.
Hulu is one of the providers that offers a free trial when signing up for HBO Max via their platform. HBO Max is $15/mo. whether via the provider site or another streaming service. However, if you add HBO Max to your Hulu subscription, you get to try it out for free for one week.
While you may not have a HBO Max free trial, keep your eyes peeled for other discounts. And remember that HBO Max never ties you to a long-term contract. So you can cancel any time if your favorite show is on hiatus.
One of the most popular and advantageous HBO Max deals is for AT&T wireless, TV, and internet subscribers. Right now, you can get an HBO Max subscription for free when signing up for select plans. This deal fits a wide range of customers, as you can choose which AT&T product best fits your needs.
For wireless customers, all Unlimited Elite plans ($50/mo.) are eligible for the free HBO Max offer. The AT&T Fiber - Internet 1000 ($60/mo.) and AT&T TV Choice ($85/mo.) plans get internet and TV customers free HBO Max as well, though TV customers only get one year free.
HBO Max lacking a free trial is a disadvantage when compared to some other services. Hulu offers a full month free when you sign up for a Hulu or Hulu (No Ads) plan. If you want Hulu + Live TV, you get seven days free.
Amazon's Prime Video is another rare service showcasing a 30-day offer, with the trial valid for Prime membership which includes the video streaming service for free. Another great aspect about Prime Video is that there are always multiple deals and promotions on the channels you can add.
However, trials may be falling out of favor, because Netflix and Disney+ no longer off them either. Your best bet is to keep an eye out on the HBO Max homepage as deals come and go frequently.
