It turns out the report was true as WarnerMedia has officially announced that HBO Max with ads will indeed cost subscribers $10 a month. The difference of $5 might not seem that much, but over time it will add up, especially if you do have other subscriptions running, so if you want to try and save as much as possible, this could be a tier you might want to consider.
In terms of features, it will be almost identical to the no-ads version of HBO Max with one catch. This will come in the form of movies where you won’t be able to watch movies that WarnerMedia is releasing on HBO Max and theaters on the same day, at least not in the first 30 days of release. However, you will be able to watch them at a later date, so if you’re not too fussed about this then it might not be too big of a deal.
HBO Max with Ads will be launching in the first week of June and according to Tony Goncalves, EVP and Chief Revenue Officer for WarnerMedia, “HBO Max with Ads will bring our beloved entertainment brands and franchises to even more consumers at this new, lower price point-while, for the first time, elegantly connecting brands to the premium, iconic IP that defines this service.”
