Max, previously known as HBO Max and still called so outside the United States, is an American subscription video-on-demand over-the-top streaming service. It’s owned by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Streaming & Interactive Entertainment, part of Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD).

HBO Max doesn’t provide a free trial on its own. However, you can still access HBO Max for free by adding it to other subscriptions or streaming services. Sometimes, when you add HBO Max as an extra, you can also get a free trial.

In this article, we discussed various ways to get the HBO Max free trial and a few more things you need to know.

Get HBO Max free trial

As we mentioned above, HBO Max doesn’t provide a free trial, but various platforms allow you to take a free trial of Max when added as an add-on.

Get a Max Free Trial on Amazon Prime Video

You can get a seven-day Max free trial by adding it to your Amazon Prime Video subscription. Start with a Prime Video account with a 30-day free trial, then add Max. Prime Video costs $14.99/month, and Max adds an extra $15.99/month. Remember, you can cancel Max before the trial ends to avoid extra charges.

Get a Max Free Trial With DirecTV

If you sign up for DirecTV’s Premier package, you’ll get Max included for three months at a discounted rate of $144.99/month. After the initial three months, the plan renews at $154.99/month. This offer comes with a two-year contract, locking in the price and providing access to over 150 channels, premium networks, and on-demand titles.

Alternatively, you can choose a DirecTV Stream package, like the popular Choice package at $99.99/month, which includes Max. New DirecTV Stream subscribers can also enjoy a three-month Max free trial.

Get a Max Free Trial With Cricket Wireless Plan

Cricket Wireless offers a free Max subscription with ads to customers who subscribe to their $60/month plan. Sign up for the Cricket plan, create an online account, and log in to Max using your Cricket credentials. This offers a free Max subscription, not just a trial, making it one of the easiest ways to access Max.

Get a Max Free Trial With AT&T Wireless Plan

While AT&T no longer offers new customers free Max subscriptions, those with qualifying, grandfathered wireless plans can still enjoy this benefit. Ensure your plan qualifies and activates the Max benefit, especially now HBO Max has transitioned to Max. Be aware that signing up for a new AT&T plan may result in losing your free Max deal.
