HBO has always been "pricey" thanks to its premium content. But not with this deal! Hurry and you can grab the ad-supported plan for just $7.99 a month (for up to 12 months). That's cheaper than Netflix! Offer ends 25th January 2022. Cancel anytime.

As you'd expect, HBO Max offers access to the complete HBO catalogue – shows such as The Sopranos, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Succession, Veep, Westworld and South Park. You also get access to WarnerMedia's vast library of movies and TV shows stretching back 100 years, from Casablanca and Citizen Kane to Braveheart and the Harry Potter films.

There are two membership tiers. The ad-free version usually costs $14.99 a month, which is a bit pricier than Netflix. But with today’s 20 per cent discount, it's actually cheaper! There's also an ad-supported $9.99 a month tier ($7.99 with the 20 per cent discount). It provides access to all the top HBO shows, but you may miss out on selected movie releases.

HBO says the deal is open to "new and returning HBO Max subscribers", so even if you recently cancelled your sub, you can dive right in and get 20% off for up to 12 months. Nice.

In addition to signing up at, you can activate your subscription within the HBO Max app on compatible Apple, Roku, Google, LG, Microsoft, Sony, or Vizio devices.
