AT&T HBO Max’s free offer along with the Unlimited Elite subscription quietly removed in June, probably for financial reasons. However, it appears that the carrier has reached a new agreement with Warner Bros. Discovery for the distribution of HBO Max.
The new deal replaces the previous deal HBO Max offered to AT&T’s internet customers, but that’s about all the information the carrier revealed today. An AT&T official states that “this amended agreement is an important step in positioning both AT&T and Warner Bros. Discovery for lasting success.”
The Announcement does not specify when AT&T would reduce HBO Max’s free offering to its wireless plans or home Internet options. It is also unclear which version of the HBO Max subscription will be offered by the carrier.
Earlier, AT&T offered the ad-free HBO Max package at $15 per month with the Unlimited Elite plan, as well as the ad-supported bundle with an unlimited plan through its Cricket prepaid service.
HBO Max launched in the United States about two years ago and is now available in 61 countries. Earlier today, the company announced that HBO Max and Discovery Plus will merge sometime next summer in the US.
