HBO Max is streaming now. The U.S.'s largest cable operator, reported 20.8 million total video customers as of the end of the first quarter of 2020, though that was down 4.7% from the year prior.

Confused at what this is compared to your normal HBO or HBO Now subscription?

"4K HDR will not be available at launch but we are looking to deliver it in the future", a HBO Max spokesperson confirms to TechRadar.

The service usually costs $14.99, but HBO Max is available to many subscribers for free-or, at least, for the same amount that they are paying for HBO already. This is the same price as HBO Max itself, meaning that viewers are not getting any kind of deal.

In order to take advantage of the offer, all HBO add-on Hulu customers have to do is download the HBO Max app onto the device of their choice.
