HBO Max is officially no more. The rebranded app that replaces it, dubbed simply “Max” combines content from both Discovery+ and HBO Max into a single, consolidated streaming service. Altogether, there is now over 35,000 hours of programming on Max.
Although HBO Max got a price hike in January, the launch of Max retains the same pricing despite more content in its library. To get 4K content, though, you will now need to subscribe to a new, higher-priced tier.
Shall I Stream It is viewer-supported and provides honest reviews. To support this work, some links feature partners where commission is earned for purchases.
Here are the plans available for Max at launch:
- Max With Ads: Stream on 2 devices at a time in full HD resolution for either $9.99/month or $99.99/year.
- Max Ad-Free: Stream on 2 devices at a time in full HD resolution, plus get 30 offline downloads per month. Plan costs either $15.99 a month or $149.99 per year.

Movies and shows available on Max at its launch include new Max Originals like SmartLess: On the Road, What Am I Eating? With Zooey Deschanel, a reboot of the animated series Clone High, and Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai. May 23rd also marks the streaming debut of Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
