Final Day to Register for a 7-Day Max Trial

Streaming services continue to raise their prices, with recent increases from Peacock and Max affecting their ad-free plans. Additionally, some services, including Max, have decided to discontinue free trials, limiting access to their content only to paying subscribers. However, Max is offering a rare weeklong trial for new subscribers until June 23rd.

While a week may not be sufficient to explore all of Max’s original programming, it does allow for catching up on popular shows like “Hacks,” “Scavenger’s Reign,” “True Detective: Night Country,” and the acclaimed adaptation of “The Last of Us.” Subscribers can also revisit “Dune: Part Two” and enjoy Studio Ghibli films, along with the initial episodes of the new season of “House of the Dragon.”

Max’s current trial covers all three subscription tiers, each set to auto-renew at the end of the trial unless canceled. The annual ad-supported plan starts at $9.99 per month or $99 annually, while the ad-free plans, offering offline downloads, start at $16.99 per month or $169.99 annually. This trial period presents an opportunity for potential subscribers to determine which plan best suits their viewing preferences.

In the realm of streaming services, Max boasts a diverse library featuring popular series like “Game of Thrones” and its spinoff “House of the Dragon,” as well as titles like “Wonka,” “Euphoria,” “Succession,” and more. The platform offers an ad-supported plan and two ad-free tiers, providing users with the option to download content for offline viewing.

For those seeking more deals and discounts, various limited-time offers are available. The UE Wonderboom 3 is currently on sale at an all-time low price, offering quality sound and a waterproof design. REI’s promotion on the Yeti Tundra 45 cooler provides a $60 discount for members, highlighting the cooler’s durability and cooling capabilities. Anker’s 522 Portable Power Station is also discounted, offering multiple charging ports and LED indicators for convenient use.

Overall, the landscape of streaming services continues to evolve, with providers adjusting prices and offerings to cater to subscribers’ needs. With opportunities like Max’s one-week trial, viewers can explore a vast array of content and determine the most suitable subscription plan for their entertainment preferences.
