Effective immediately, HBO Max increased the price of its subscription in the United States, going from $14.99 to $15.99 for the ad-free plan. Although the increase is only a dollar, it should be remembered that in the middle of the year HBO Max will be united in a single application with Discovery Plus, and it remains to be seen how the values can be seen when the two are added services. With these continuous increases, what platforms of streaming subscribe in 2023?
As we explained in previous reports, Netflix is the platform with the most expensive service price globally. And as in each country there are different values, we must have a comparison taking as a reference the one charged in the United States.
While Netflix is priced at $19.99 for the Premium plan, with that value they can pay for two to three platforms. And with the now US$ 15.99 you can also have two or three services, for the same price.
Which streaming platforms will you subscribe to in 2023?
Undoubtedly, it is an excellent choice Disney Plus (with its brands Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and 20th Century Studios), which although it has a value of US$ 10.99 in the United States, in Latin America it has a much cheaper price, especially if subscribe to Combo Plus which includes a Star Plus and ESPN live sports. In Spain, the Star brand is included in the subscription to Disney Plus, but does not include ESPN sports.
Since its launch, Apple TV Plus managed to constantly increase its library that has only original content, with series and films multi-awarded by critics and the public. Apple TV Plus has a global price of $6.99 USD with the bonus that you can try the service for free for 7 days. It is one of the few platforms that currently offers the option to do this free trial. And well worth it considering the renowned titles for such as Foundation, The Morning Show, Severance, Ted Lasso, For All Mankind, Truth Be Told and many more.
Also, Apple TV Plus is not only available for iOS, but also for Windows and Android. You just need to create or have an Apple ID account, which is also created for free. (Click here to try Apple TV Plus for free).
Another great option is Amazon Prime Video. It also allows you to try the service, in this case for 30 days, with a huge library of original, third-party and MGM content.
How to replace Netflix and/or HBO Max?
An excellent option is to subscribe to Disney Plus and combine it with Prime Video and/or Apple TV Plus. This will make one get three rigs for the price of one.
In a highly competitive market, and with constant price increases, it’s time to try and choose which one to stick with.
