HBO Max offers new subscribers with free episodes
HOB Max Tuesday announced that it offers free episodes to potential new subscribers in-app and for free so they can watch more popular series for a test drive before committing to yet another streaming service.
The company stated that the freebies for potential users will reach the service on Tuesday and that the new episodes will be swapped in and out “periodically”. The feature will be available on all HBO Max device partners, including Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, android tv, android, iOS, iPad, Apple TV, Chromecast, Playstation, Roku, Samsung, and from today LG smart TVs.
The teaser episode introduced to viewers will expand HBO Max’s initiative to tease the content for viewers who may not yet have subscribed to the service.
New viewers considering a subscription will be able to watch a selection of 13 pilots from HBO and HBO Max without having to sign up for the service. Typically, subscribers would pay $10 a month for the ad-supported tier of HBO Max or $15 a month to go ad-free and get special benefits such as 4K streaming and day-and-date releases for Warner Bros. movies. (HBO Max does not currently offer a free trial.) The full list of series whose pilots can be streamed for free is as follows:
Game of Thrones
Raised by wolves
Doom Patrol (Season 2, Episode 1)
