How to Add HBO Max to Hulu? – This is how you can do

Finally, HBO Max is out, but it has generated more questions than it has addressed. The lack of compatibility for major media streaming devices seems to be the most significant shortcoming, but fortunately, we have already discovered a method to install HBO Max on Fire Stick. Despite the fact that Hulu is supported by HBO Max, getting it to operate is not as simple as you would hope. Here is how to watch HBO Max on Hulu using a web browser.

What is HBO Max

HBO Max is the latest premium subscription streaming service brought to us by Warner Media, owned by AT&T. HBO Max will work in congruence with the company’s other streaming services, namely HBO Go and HBO Now, but the latter may soon disappear now.

HBO Max is only accessible in the United States, but if you want to watch it from anywhere else in the world, you can do so by connecting to a VPN. It is, however, difficult to subscribe to HBO Max directly since they only take credit cards issued by US-based financial institutions.

Is HBO Max available on Hulu?

Yes. It is, however, a difficult task. You will not be able to access HBO Max content straight from your Hulu app. Instead, in order to access HBO Max content, you will need to download and utilise the HBO Max app in conjunction with your Hulu credentials.

We like the fact that you can create a new HBO Max account using your Hulu credentials, so that if you ever need to share HBO Max credentials, you don’t have to share your Hulu login information with others as well.

How much does HBO Max cost with Hulu?

HBO Max has debuted with a monthly subscription fee of $14.99, which places it slightly above video streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime. However, it is priced similarly to its sibling standalone streaming service HBO Now, allowing it to compete on pricing.

The add-on is not tied to any specific Hulu plan, and it may even be used with the Base plan (which costs $4.99 per month) if desired. Hulu members who currently have an HBO add-on, or who sign up for one before May 27, 2020, will be eligible for a free upgrade to HBO Max! On their phone, the HBO Now app will be withdrawn in favour of the HBO Max app, which will also be uninstalled.
