What’s included with my Max subscription?

Max is the one to watch for all your streaming needs. The enhanced service will be home to all your favorites from HBO and HBO Max, but that’s not all Max will offer. There will also be lots of new-to-you content, including real-world series in the reality, lifestyle, food, and true crime genres.
