I rate HBO Max an 8.5/10 for its extensive content catalog and the wild Studio Ghibli collection. Existing HBO customers who gained a lot more movies and TV shows without signing up for anything new will still find HBO Max to be a nice boost. Thanks to respected brands like Studio Ghibli and the Criterion Collection, HBO Max may be enough to persuade people like me to keep their HBO membership. I just raised HBO Max's score because it now supports Roku and Fire TV, as well as 4K HDR for very few blockbusters. However, the ad-supported tier should have fewer restrictions, and both plans are still pricey compared to competitors' offerings. Even though HBO Max is a better value than HBO Now on its own, Netflix remains my preference.
HBO Max's package is more extortionate than most of its competitors with monthly costs of $9.99 and $14.99.
