Warner Bros. Discovery announced a price increase for existing and new HBO Max customers in 2023. The ad-free subscription cost increases to $15.99 per month starting at the next billing cycle or after February 11. New subscribers must pay $15.99 for their first month of service.

No cable subscription is required for full access. HBO Max also comes in an ad-supported tier for $9.99 per month.

HBO Max is the top-tier service from HBO, with the largest on-demand content library. Original shows will also be delivered via HBO Max.

Despite the price increase, the cost for HBO Max has gone up less than for other streaming services. Both Disney+ and Apple TV+ have raised subscription costs recently.
