HBO Max is now just max and can be accessed by going to max.com or via their app. If you already had HBO Max, nothing will change and you’ll continue to be able to access your favorite shows and movies and check out HBO originals, older shows you may have missed or peruse their very extensive catalog that might not be available on other platforms. For those outside of the U.S.A, many of the shows on max aren’t yet available or may require a rental fee so signing up might be the way to access a lot of shows.
max offers 3 tiers or subscriptions (monthly or yearly pricing is different) and includes options with ads or without ads, 2 or 4 devices at the same time, HD or 4K Ultra HD and different download options for watching on the go. It starts at $9.99 a month and up to $19.99 a month.
To gain access to max from outside of the U.S.A, make sure you have your US Unlocked account setup, if not head there and sign up today.

What to Watch
There are a lot of good shows but some of our favorites right now include:
The Last of Us – this post apocalyptic drama series, based on the 2013 video game really hit us hard following our own pandemic, premiering on January 2023 and watched by millions of viewers on its first day. It has since become a must-watch show in its first season and has been renewed for a second.
F9 (also known as Fast and Furious 9) – is the latest in the long running Fast and Furious franchise that continues to entertain us. Released in 2021, the movie has many of the usual cast of characters with a few notable names thrown in.
Succession – currently in its third season, the show follows a family that controls an international media conglomerate as the aging head looks to hand over the reigns. It’s a little more complicated than anticipated much to our benefit.
