After announcing its new “+play” entertainment hub in March with support for many major streaming services, Verizon is adding another today. HBO Max is now part of +play to make it easier for customers to manage and save money on all their subscriptions in one place.
Verizon detailed the news in a press release today:
“We are thrilled to have HBO Max join us as the latest streaming partner for +play,” said Erin McPherson, chief content officer for Verizon Consumer Group. “As one of the largest direct-to-consumer distributors in the United States, we have a reputation for providing millions of our customers with great premium content from leading services, and our partnership with HBO Max s will build on this trend while speaking directly to customer pain points, such as managing multiple subscriptions in one place.
HBO Max joins Disney+, Netflix, Discovery+, AMC+, Peloton and more for Verizon’s streaming services hub. The idea is to give Verizon customers a central location to easily manage and find savings for their favorite services.
+play comes with Apple Arcade being a permanently free service with Verizon’s “Play More” and “Get More” unlimited plans. These top plans also include Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ for free. And the “Get More” plan also offers Apple Music at no cost.
Today’s announcement doesn’t mean Verizon customers will get HBO Max for free, but instead they can manage the paid subscription along with other services in the +play hub.
