With everyone stuck indoors for the majority of the day because of this pandemic, we’re all on the hunt for as many shows, movies and new content as possible. Whether that means originals or old classics, it doesn’t really matter: We just want something to watch!

Enter HBO Max, a new streaming experience to enjoy.

So what is HBO Max?

This differs from both HBO GO because you don’t need a cable or TV package with HBO Max. It’s also different from HBO NOW because  it offers a wider variety of titles. However, because the universe is looking out for all of us, all AT&T HBO subscribers get access to HBO Max at launch at no additional cost.
