HBO Max is now available in the United States, and the new expansion will take the service to 39 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. The company also promises that another 21 territories in Europe will be streaming in 2021, replacing the current HBO Go.

HBO Max prices in Brazil

HBO Max will be marketed in two versions:

  • The plan Standard it is the most complete: it allows transmission with 4K resolution on up to 3 simultaneous devices. This subscription can be used on smartphones, tablets, computers and smart TVs, and allows the creation of five individual profiles.
  • The plan Mobile it is intended for individual use and can only be accessed via smartphone or tablet. It is not possible to create profiles, and the image quality is optimized for mobile devices.

HBO Max prices vary depending on the subscription period. Check out:

HBO Max subscription Mobile (Individual) Standard
Monthly R $ 19.97 per month R $ 28,00 per month
Quarterly R $ 18.37 per month R $ 25,06 per month
Yearly R $ 14.21 per month R $ 20.07 per month

In addition to direct subscription, it is possible to hire HBO Max through partner operators such as Claro, Oi, TIM, Vivo and Multiplay. The company says that subscribers to HBO channels on Pay TV or DirecTV Go will also have free access to the streaming platform, and current HBO Go customers will be migrated to the new service.

It is possible to say that the prices of HBO Max are inviting: the programmer charged R $ 34.90 per month for HBO Go, and the new service is cheaper and has much more content. Other competitors have more affordable offers: the basic Netflix subscription costs R $ 21.90 per month, while Amazon Prime, which includes Prime Video, has a monthly fee of R $ 9.99.

HBO Max will have a 7-day free trial period. The service will also have some episodes of series and documentaries for non-subscribers, in order to attract new users.

Movies from the cinema will arrive at HBO Max in 35 days

WarnerMedia will continue to produce content with exclusive release for the cinema, and HBO Max will receive the films in the catalog after 35 days of release. This will happen with Space Jam: A New Legacy and Matrix 4, which will debut in the second half of 2021.

HBO Max to have Friends meeting and WarnerMedia content

One of the biggest assets of HBO Max is to bring together the content of the entire WarnerMedia conglomerate, which owns the brands HBO, Warner Channel, TNT, DC, Looney Tunes and Cartoon Network.

One of the most awaited launches is Friends: The Reunion, a special episode of the comedy series featuring Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross actors. For Brazil, HBO Max will also have live broadcasts from UEFA Champeons league.
