If you have never tried HBO Max — or if you canceled the service and are having second thoughts — now is the time to subscribe.

Through Sept. 26, new and returning subscribers can get HBO Max at a 50% discount. The price works out to $7.49 per month for six months.

This is the ad-free version of HBO Max that includes access to Warner Bros. 2021 movie premieres on the same day the movies are released to theaters. You also get 4K ultra-high definition (UHD) video quality for select movie titles.

Other perks include:

  • Thousands of hours of series, movies and exclusive originals
  • A curated kids’ experience with flexible parental controls
  • Personalized streaming for up to five profiles

  • Apple
  • Google
  • Roku
  • LG
  • Microsoft
  • Sony
  • Vizio
