What else can I watch on HBO Max?

In addition to “Made for Love,” HBO Max features a huge catalog of movies and shows.

The service is streaming brand-new Warner Bros. movies on the same day they debut in theaters. “Godzilla vs. Kong” is the latest film to premiere and it’s available to stream through April 30. Other upcoming titles include “Mortal Kombat,” “The Suicide Squad,” “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” and more.

HBO Max is also home to a number of original shows, including “Raised by Wolves,” as well as HBO classics such as “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” and “Game of Thrones.”

Is HBO Max worth it?

At $15 a month, HBO Max is a bit expensive compared to some other streaming services, but it offers a lot of value if you like to watch HBO originals and brand-new movies at home. The option to stream upcoming Warner releases, like “The Suicide Squad” and “The Matrix 4,” while they’re still playing in theaters could be worth the subscription price alone.

HBO Max is a streaming service that blends HBO’s library of prestige original series with a huge catalog of blockbuster movies and TV shows provided by WarnerMedia. HBO Max launched in May 2020 for $15 a month.

Most people who subscribe to HBO through cable can claim their own free HBO Max subscription using their provider. In January, parent company AT&T said the service had already reached 40 million subscribers in the US, surpassing a goal it didn’t expect to reach for two more years.

HBO Max features way more content than HBO’s cable offerings, including brand-new theatrical releases from Warner Bros. Older titles and network shows, like “Friends” and “Rick and Morty,” are also available. Subscribers can watch new exclusive movies and series as well, including the sci-fi show “Raised by Wolves.”

With its large collection of programs, and a growing slate of original titles, HBO Max is one of our best reviewed streaming services.

Where can I sign up for HBO Max?

HBO Max launched on May 27, 2020.

You can sign up for HBO Max right now through HBOMax.com. In addition to the HBO Max website, you can also sign up for an HBO Max subscription directly through select partner services, including AT&T, DirecTV, AT&T U-Verse, Spectrum, Hulu, YouTube TV, Apple TV, and Google Play.

If you currently pay for HBO in your cable package, you likely already have access to HBO Max as part of your subscription. Depending on your provider, you may be able to sign directly into the HBO Max app, or you’ll be prompted to create an account. You can view a full list of qualifying HBO Max providers here.

How much does HBO Max cost?

HBO Max costs $15 a month, the same price as regular HBO and three dollars less than a premium Netflix subscription. For that price, you get ad-free access to all of the platform’s content.

As mentioned above, most people who already subscribe to HBO are eligible to receive HBO Max at no extra cost to their current subscription fee.

Though HBO Max initially offered a free trial period through its site, that promotion is no longer available. If you sign up for HBO Max as an add-on through Hulu, however, new members can still receive a one-week trial.

The differences between HBO Max, HBO Go, and HBO Now

hbo now

HBO Max is an on-demand streaming platform combining HBO’s iconic original programming with an even larger library of movies and shows from WarnerMedia. The service is essentially a replacement for HBO’s older streaming options: HBO Go and HBO Now.

HBO Go was a streaming companion app for HBO cable subscribers, while HBO Now was a standalone streaming option with access to HBO without cable. On July 31, HBO discontinued the HBO Go app. On that same day, HBO rebranded HBO Now to just “HBO.”

Most people who were using the HBO Go or HBO Now app can now simply use their same account information to sign into HBO Max instead. You can see if your HBO subscription qualifies for HBO Max here.

HBO (formerly HBO Now) will continue to include streaming access to the same library of content that HBO cable subscribers can watch. This includes HBO original programming and the channel’s rotating selection of movies.

HBO Max, however, builds upon this content selection by incorporating more original titles and hundreds of additional TV shows and movies from WarnerMedia. HBO Max also allows you to download and store your favorite shows on your devices to watch while you’re offline.

For the time being, HBO and HBO Max each cost $15 a month. Since HBO Max offers a larger streaming library than HBO, it’s clearly the better choice.

Where can I watch HBO Max?

HBO Max streaming service

HBO Max can be streamed via its official website and the HBO Max app. You can find the app on Apple, Android, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and Samsung smart TVs.

Those who sign up for HBO Max directly though a partnered service, like Hulu or Apple TV, will be able to access regular HBO content through the partner service’s app. To watch HBO Max exclusives, however, you still need to use the separate HBO Max app.

Is HBO Max on Roku and Fire TV?

Though HBO Max was initially missing from Fire TV, Roku, and PlayStation devices when it launched in May 2020, the service is now available to download on all of those platforms.

Currently, LG’s smart TVs are the only major connected-devices that are missing native support for the HBO Max app.

What shows and movies are on HBO Max?

Raised by Wolves HBO Max

HBO Max features all of HBO’s original shows, from “The Wire” and “The Sopranos” to “Westworld and “Game of Thrones.” The library also includes the cable channel’s rotating lineup of movies. On top of all that, HBO Max offers additional titles from WarnerMedia’s catalog, as well as new exclusives.

Most notably, HBO Max has become the streaming destination for brand-new movies from Warner Bros. the same day they’re released in theaters. “Godzilla vs. Kong” is the latest movie to premiere on HBO Max and theaters at the same time. New films will remain on HBO Max for 31 days. After that time, they will play exclusively in theaters until their official home video release.

HBO Max also features a handful of new original series, including the sci-fi show “Raised by Wolves,” the comedy series “Love Life” starring Anna Kendrick, and a new “Looney Tunes” show featuring Bugs Bunny and company.

Beyond original programs, the HBO Max catalog offers a wide range of TV series from DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Rooster Teeth, and Looney Tunes. The HBO Max movie catalog incorporates critically acclaimed films from the Criterion Collection and Studio Ghibli, alongside hundreds of blockbuster WarnerMedia movies. The service currently hosts 1,300 films.

HBO Max is available as a Hulu add-on for $15 a month – here’s how it works

Add hbo to hulu account 4x3
  • You can watch HBO on Hulu with the HBO Max add-on for an additional $15 a month.
  • The add-on gives you access to HBO’s entire catalog of shows and movies directly through Hulu.
  • You also get access to HBO Max content through the HBO Max app.

Monthly Subscription (small)Streaming Service (small)

For years, HBO has been one of the most popular premium channels to add to your cable subscription. And now, as streaming services continue to expand, there are even more ways to watch HBO without a traditional TV plan.

The easiest method is to sign up for an HBO Max subscription, and the streaming service is even available as an add-on to other existing platforms, like Hulu.

Hulu’s HBO Max add-on costs the same as the standalone HBO Max service. The only difference is you pay for HBO Max each month alongside your Hulu plan, and you can access most HBO content directly through Hulu. This makes it easy to consolidate apps and accounts.

If you want to watch your favorite HBO content, both new and old, here’s how you can with your Hulu plan.

How much is HBO Max on Hulu?

If you want to get HBO on Hulu, the best option is the HBO Max add-on, which costs $15 a month on top of your existing Hulu subscription. Hulu itself starts at $6 a month for the ad-supported plan. You can find a full breakdown of Hulu packages and prices here.

The add-on will get you all your favorite shows and movies from HBO, along with the ability to sign into the HBO Max app for even more content.

Hulu also offers a more limited “HBO” add-on for the same price. As the missing “Max” in the name implies, this add-on doesn’t come with access to HBO Max. Since both options actually cost the same amount of money, it’s a no brainer to get the HBO Max add-on instead of just “HBO.”

If you’re a Hulu subscriber, you can get a one-week free trial when you sign up for the HBO Max add-on.

What’s included with HBO Max on Hulu?

The HBO Max add-on gives you on-demand access to everything on HBO directly through the Hulu app. You can even watch live HBO streams through Hulu on supported devices. Subscribers to the add-on can also use their Hulu account information to log into the HBO Max app for even more content.

Most HBO premieres will be available on Hulu within minutes of the episode airing on the cable channel. You can also watch nearly all of HBO’s classic programming on-demand. Naturally, the entire catalog of “Game of Thrones” is available if you want to obsessively watch it on a loop so you’ve memorized every detail by the time the much-anticipated prequel drops.

If you want to diversify your binging, you can catch up on shows that are between seasons, like “Westworld” and “Barry.” Or you can revisit some of the classics that made HBO a household name, like “The Sopranos,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Wire,” “Sex and the City,” and so many more.

Meanwhile, if you switch to the HBO Max app you can stream an even larger selection of shows and movies. Most notably, HBO Max offers new movies from Warner Bros. on the same day they hit theaters. This includes upcoming releases like “Godzilla vs. Kong” on March 31. Right now, you can stream the animated feature “Tom and Jerry.”

The add-on also lets you stream HBO Max originals, such as “The Flight Attendant” and “Raised by Wolves.” Plus, we can’t forget to mention all the additional movies available through HBO Max – HBO does stand for Home Box Office after all. Recent releases like “Joker,” “The King of Staten Island,” and “Birds of Prey: Harley Quinn” sit alongside nostalgic gems like “Billy Elliot,” “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” “City of God,” and “Cast Away.”

Can I watch HBO Max content through the Hulu app?

You can’t watch HBO Max content directly through the Hulu app. Although the HBO Max add-on will make it easier to pay for Hulu and HBO Max in one bill, you’ll have to download the HBO Max app to watch exclusive HBO Max titles.

You can think of the add-on as a bundle. You get HBO directly through Hulu, along with access to the separate HBO Max app as a bonus – all under the same payment plan.

How to watch ‘Allen v. Farrow,’ the HBO docuseries exploring Dylan Farrow’s sexual abuse accusation against Woody Allen

If you buy through our links, we may earn money from affiliate partners. Learn more.

avf03
(L-R) Ronan Farrow, Lark Previn, Woody Allen, Dylan Farrow, Fletcher Previn, Daisy Previn, Soon-Yi Previn, Moses Farrow, and Mia Farrow.

  • “Allen v. Farrow” is an HBO documentary exploring the sexual abuse accusations against Woody Allen.
  • In 1992, Allen was accused of sexually assaulting Dylan Farrow when she was 7 years old.
  • Allen continues to deny the allegations, but Farrow has reaffirmed the abuse in recent interviews.

The HBO exclusive “Allen v. Farrow” explores the accusations of sexual abuse made against director Woody Allen by his former partner, actress Mia Farrow, and her adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. The documentary is airing as a four-part series on HBO and HBO Max, with new episodes arriving Sundays at 9 p.m. ET. You can learn more about the making of the documentary in Insider’s interview with the filmmakers

Allen and Farrow were involved in a romantic and working relationship for more than a decade, with Farrow starring in 13 films directed by Allen. In 1991, Allen began a sexual relationship with Farrow’s 21-year-old adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, and in 1992 Allen was accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with Dylan when she was 7 years old. Mia Farrow reported Allen to law enforcement, leading to an extended legal battle but no criminal charges.

Allen’s denial of the allegations and the subsequent legal proceedings have been the subject of public intrigue for years. The accusations have also gained increased attention as the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements work to confront sexual misconduct in the film industry. In 2014, an adult Dylan reaffirmed the accusation of sexual abuse with an open letter in the New York Times. 

“Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse,” she wrote.

Farrow was caring for seven children when her relationship with Allen began; including three biological sons, three adopted girls, and an adopted boy. She adopted Dylan in 1985 and Farrow and Allen had one biological child together, Ronan Farrow, in 1987. Ronan has been vocally supportive of Dylan and has reported on other cases of sexual misconduct in the entertainment business.

Soon-Yi Previn and Moses Farrow have expressed public support for Allen, claiming that Farrow was overbearing and abusive in the household. Previn has been married to Allen since 1997, while Moses is estranged from other members of the family besides Allen and Soon-Yi . Farrow raised 14 children in total, 10 of whom are adopted.

The long-standing accusations against Allen have been a polarizing subject in Hollywood for decades – while many in the industry have vowed against working with Allen in the future, others have spoken out in support of Allen, like director Spike Lee and actress Scarlett Johansson.

Allen’s 2020 memoir, “Apropos of Nothing,” was canceled by publisher Hachette after employees staged a walkout in protest of its release. However, the book was released less than a month after the cancellation by Arcade Publishing. In 2019 Allen filed a $68 million lawsuit against Amazon for terminating a four-film contract he had signed with Amazon Studios two years earlier, but the case was voluntarily dismissed.

How to watch ‘Allen v. Farrow’ on HBO Max

“Allen v. Farrow” premiered on HBO and HBO Max on February 21. The documentary series is split into four parts and new episodes will debut on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. HBO Max subscribers can stream new episodes the same time they premiere on TV.

HBO Max costs $15 a month, and you can get 20% off if you prepay for six months. If you’re already paying for HBO through your cable provider, there’s a good chance you can access HBO Max for no extra cost.

You can watch HBO Max in your web browser, or via the HBO Max app on Apple devices, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PlayStation, and Samsung smart TVs.
