HBO Max has now launched its Black Friday 2022 deal, reducing the price of a subscription down to just $1.99 per month for the first three months. Considering the cheapest HBO Max plan costs $9.99 per month, this is a fairly substantial saving on the price of a subscription. Discovery Plus has also now launched a very similar promotion, with the price dropping down to just 99 cents for the first three months.
HBO Max currently offers two main plans for homes to choose from. At $9.99 per month, the With Ads plan is the cheapest and, as the name suggests, includes ads. For $14.99 per month, subscribers get access to an ad-free viewing experience as well as the ability to watch select movies in 4K. Discovery Plus also offers two main plans, Ad Lite at $4.99 per month and Ad-Free at $6.99 per month.
To celebrate Black Friday 2022, HBO Max has reduced the cost of a subscription down to just $1.99 per month. No promo code is needed with the deal already visible on the HBO Max website. It is worth noting that the discount is for the With Ads plan, with no option to lower the cost of the ad-free subscription. In addition, the reduced rate only applies to the first three months, after which the price will automatically increase to the usual $9.99 per month rate. New users have until November 28th (Cyber Monday) to take advantage of the special Black Friday savings.
In a related promotion, the cost of a Discovery Plus subscription has dropped down to $0.99 per month for the first three months. Similar to HBO Max, the Black Friday deal is already live on the Discovery+ website, is good through Cyber Monday, and only applies to the ad-supported plan. Once the discounted three months have come to an end, the subscription will renew at the usual $4.99 per month plan price.
HBO Max and Discovery Plus are now somewhat related, following the creation of Warner Bros. Discovery, which is why the two deals are so similar in nature, and why they are bound by the same limitations. Either way, the option to subscribe to both for less than $3 per month is a pretty good Black Friday deal.
