HBO Max was launched in the US last year. The service will expand to 39 areas in Latin America and the Caribbean at the end of June. Before the global release, WarnerMedia announced that it would add a new level to its service. Now the introduction of the new subscription has started (via The edge). The new tier costs $ 10 per month, which saves $ 5 off HBO Max’s regular $ 15 plan. However, you will see ads that are claimed to be both “elegant” and “respectful” of the subject.
“Advertising is a proven way to lower the cost of great entertainment and reach a wider audience,” said Andy Forssell, EVP and general manager at HBO Max, in a statement. “We’ve worked hard to create a sleek, tasteful advertising experience that respects the great storytelling for those who choose it and that we believe will deliver to our advertising partners too.”
The Ad Tier HBO Max has the “lightest ad load in the streaming industry.” It is said that the content that subscribers see doesn’t pause very often – or very long, because the ads may appear when users pause content.
The new tier provides access to the same extensive catalog of WarnerMedia’s content, including shows like game of Thrones, Guardian, Friends, and more. However, Warner Bros. does not provide you with same-day motion pictures. This content includes The suicide squad, The incantation: The devil made me do it, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and dune.
As previously mentioned, the service is slated to roll out in 39 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean around the world in late June. In addition, HBO branded streaming services in Europe are slated to be upgraded to HBO Max later this year.
