(2021) How to get free HBO Max with ATT

For a long time now HBO has maintained its stature as one of the oldest and best media content providing services out there. I am sure you can recall watching movies on HBO back in the days when smartphones were not even a thing, and subscription and media streaming were not as common.

But now that they are, HBO is topping in that field as well. That is why this article discussed How to get free HBO Max with ATT. There are a few things we would be discussing along the way for that so keep reading!

HBO and HBO Max

HBO is an American Pay Television media network. Not surprisingly to many, it is owned by WarnerMedia Studios and Network. But what might surprise you is that it was established in November 1972. I believe you knew it was old for it was a television channel, but I do not think you could have guessed it was this old.

It is probably clear now why HBO can compete with the likes of media streaming giants such as Netflix. HBO has now released its streaming service to compete with them called HBO Max. Max is a streaming platform that excels at providing every one of your superb and high-quality movies and comedy Shows. You would also get exclusive HBO shows and series, such as Chernobyl.

HBO Max subscription

There are many ways to get an HBO Max subscription. One of the straightforward ways is to buy a subscription to the streaming service for 9.99 USD. This would include ads, however. If you prefer the service to be free of advertisements, you can opt for the 14.99 USD plan.

But hold on, there are simpler and cheaper ways to get it! If you have been using AT & T then you might be aware of the recent news that you can get an HBO Max subscription with certain AT & T recharge plans. The main question is how does one knows which plans are eligible for it.

There are certain eligible Unlimited recharge plans that you can activate your HBO Max subscription on. This is very similar to how AirTel offers an Amazon Prime subscription with an unlimited recharge (although it is only valid for a month).  Either way, these Unlimited plans are:

  • AT&T Unlimited Elite
  • AT&T Unlimited PlusSM
  • AT&T Unlimited Plus EnhancedSM
  • AT&T Unlimited ChoiceSM
  • AT&T Unlimited Choice IISM
  • AT&T Unlimited Choice EnhancedSM
  • AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM Premium

The last one, named ‘Unlimited and more premium’ would only work if you select Max as your premium channel. In all of these subscriptions, you should make sure to check all your accounts to make sure which one has access to HBO Max.

HBO also suggests you pick up a different subscription if you want Max and the current one does not support it. You check your plan that is working right now here.

Web Browser:

Not everyone has a smartphone. It is possible you might not have one in your hand right now too. In both cases, HBO Max has got you covered. You can do it on the HBO Max website. It is essentially the same as Android or iOS, all you need to do is head to the HBO Max website rather than the app and click on Sign in > Sign in through TV or Mobile Provider.

Now fill in the credentials for AT & T and you are all done! Start watching your shows without any worries. Like I said earlier, consider filling in your HBO profile details, it would help you with using the app even more.

But what if you wanted to use it on your Smart TV, or maybe a different streaming Platform such as Roku? We have ways to do that too!

Smart TVs and other supported streaming Platforms:

  • Step 1: Head to the App Store.

Download the HBO Max app for your TV. For AT & T TVs, try channel number 190 or 500. Chances are HBO max is already installed in it.

  • Step 2: Click on the Sign-in option.

You would get a 6 digit code, note it down or copy it.

  • Step 4: Enter the 6 digit code, or preferably paste it.

  • Step 5: Click on the Sign-in once again.

At this step, Apple TV users might be asked a question which they have to allow or deny. If you happen to be getting HBO Max due to AT & T then you should click on Allow or else press Don’t allow.

  • Step 6: Choose AT & T and log in through the credentials.

With your profile settings you can start streaming any media content you want that is available on it! Since we have discussed the regular procedures let us talk about

How to get HBO MAX on  AT&T Unlimited & More Premium.
