At least it’s only 7%. I bailed on Apple when they hiked it 40%. Granted that was still less than half of HBO, but they don’t have much content either.

It's $1. That's nothing. The amount of shows and movies that HBO has makes it more than worth it. But luckily I have that 1 year promo locked in that I also got an additional discount using my AMEX card. I'll worry about the new price when the time comes later this year.

Re: HBO Max — Warnermedia streaming service

I can’t find any mention of it Here but last year maybe after august they offered a monthly $12 plan good for a year.

After the increase was announced I wondered if that would effect these monthly deals.
It appears it effected my plan as it went up $3 to $14.99.

Okay well Nevermind.

looks like I’ve had this deal for a year already.
Interesting that my price went to $15 and not $16 a month.

Guess I’ll be cancelling

“This price increase of one dollar will allow us to continue to invest in providing even more culture-defining programming and improving our customer experience for all users,” the company said in a statement.
That, friends and neighbors, takes some serious balls to say.

Hello

I'm trying to find a bit more on reviews of HBO Max with Ads as to how it all works and just how annoying is it with TV Shos and Movies...The Last of Us series is on and having a PS5 supposedly there's a discount for a Yearly Sub with Ads. We have Amazon and Disney but no ads so don't have nothing to compare before grabbing the deal or not.

I would just pay extra for no ads. All streaming services tend to run the same ads multiple times.

So, Westworld can’t be seen on any non-paying streaming service?

Pretty much. You can either buy it digitally or buy it on optical disc. Or go sailing on the high seas.

Well, that blows. I have the first 2 seasons on Vudu, so might as well make it a set, but thought I could coast on the last two seasons on HM.

Skip three entirely. Just watch a recap. It's awful.

HBO Max was actually broadcasting live International soccer last night. It was USA vs Serbia. I saw a little bit of it and the broadcast quality looked good. Only reason why I heard of it was because one of our reporters at NFL Network Sara Walsh got hired by WB to be a host of the soccer coverage.

Re: HBO Max — Warnermedia streaming service

Season 3 was a boring confusing mess. They really got far away from what made the show cool and interesting. I am not aware of anyone who liked it much.
Season 4 was a lot better and even cool in spots. Then it really shit the bed in the final two episodes. So much so that I didn't mind its cancelation. Still the season is worth watching.
