HBO Max Partners with Cricket Wireless to Offer Ad-Supported Tier to Mobile Customers for Free
Despite spinning the company off, WarnerMedia’s HBO Max is still playing nice with AT&T in some capacity, at least in the short term.
Thursday morning, WarnerMedia announced that it is partnering with Cricket Wireless, a subsidiary of AT&T, to offer ad-supported HBO Max subscriptions to new and existing customers on Cricket’s $60 unlimited plan.
“Starting August 20, Cricket Wireless will offer the ad-supported tier of HBO Max for free to new and existing customers on our $60/mo. unlimited plan, which comes with 15GB of mobile hotspot and access to our 5G network on eligible devices,” Warner’s press release said.
“We are always looking for ways to bring our customers the best value possible. We know they are hungry for content and HBO Max offers the most cutting-edge and high-quality entertainment available,” said Tony Mokry, vice president and chief marketing officer of Cricket Wireless. “From cult classics to new HBO Max Originals, we know our customers will be smiling ear to ear when they dive in. We’re so excited to be able to bring this incredible service and library of content to our beloved customers.”
HBO Max es un servicio de transmisión de video por suscripción que brinda acceso a la biblioteca completa de HBO, junto con Max Originals exclusivos, y acceso a todas las películas de Warner Bros. en HBO Max poco después de que estén en los cines.
HBO Max HBO Max tiene dos planes: un plan móvil “Mobile” ($4.900 / mes), que está diseñado para un solo usuario en su dispositivo móvil, así como un plan familiar “Multitelas” ($6.900 / mes) ofrece a las familias acceso a 3 usuarios simultáneos.
Los suscriptores de HBO Max obtendrán Max Originals adicionales que incluyen Love Life, Raised By Wolves, Dune: The Sisterhood , Tokyo Vice , The Flight Attendant , Gremlins , Legendary, Craftopia, los nuevos dibujos animados de Looney Tunes, y The Not Too Late Show with Elmo de Sesame Workshop.
While WarnerMedia is currently under the AT&T umbrella, it won’t be for long (barring any sort of anti-trust issues that may arise.) WarnerMedia is merging with Discovery, inc. to form WarnerBros. Discovery, a new outfit that will see WarnerBros. leave AT&T just 3 years after it was acquired for $85 billion.
“Since launching HBO Max last year, we’ve continually expanded customers’ access to the product, and partnering with Cricket, our first prepaid wireless distributor of the streaming platform, is a great opportunity to offer millions of customers instant access to HBO Max at no cost to them,” said Jennifer Mirgorod, head of partner management and partner marketing at WarnerMedia.
