When HBO Max debuted in May 2020, it cost $9.99/month if you were willing to watch ads and $14.99/month for ad-free. They’re now raising the ad-free price by a dollar, but the subscription with ads will remain the same. At $15.99/month, HBO Max without ads is 50 cents more than Netflix’s standard plan of $15.49/month. The price increase comes at a time when HBO Max has been pulling content from its library in an effort to cut costs. Since Warner Bros. and Discover merged, they have been trying to cut more than $3B in expenses in the entire company. By pulling content people aren’t really watching, HBO Max reportedly will save over $100M per year.
