With its massive catalog including titles from DC, Studio Ghibli, Warner Bros. and HBO, HBO Max is one of the best streaming services available. You can watch a huge variety of TV shows and movies, with House of the Dragon, Westworld, Succession, Adventure Time, Sesame Street and Joker all available on the service.
If you’re yet to try out HBO Max, now’s a great time to do so. Pay just $2 for your first three months of HBO Max with ads when you sign up with this Black Friday deal. That’s an 80% discount on the monthly price. You can take advantage of the savings now until Nov. 28.
As far as streaming service deals go, this one is pretty good if you want to try out HBO Max without committing to a year of service. Just remember that this deal only applies to the ad-supported tier, so you will be stuck with a few commercial breaks.
The deal is available to former subscribers as well as new ones, so if you’ve never used the service or a previous subscription has lapsed, you can get in on the savings. After your discount ends, your subscription will be set to auto-renew at the regular monthly rate of $10 a month unless you cancel it. If you like the service enough to keep it long-term, you might want to switch it up to an annual plan, which will run you $100 for the ad-supported plan or $150 ad-free.
