HBO Max billing Q&A

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers:

Paying for HBO Max

How much does HBO Max cost?

The subscription cost varies by provider and subscription plan. For pricing info see HBOMax.com.

Are there additional fees?

Depending on your location, you may be charged local taxes. Some financial institutions may add transaction fees if you aren't using a local payment method. These fees are charged by your bank—contact your bank directly if you have any questions.

What if the charge isn't what I expected?

If your charge looks different than you expected, here are a few possible reasons:

  • Applicable taxes are added to your subscription charge and they're based on your current location.
  • You may have a different plan or billing period than you thought (yearly or monthly).
  • Your promotional or discounted period may have ended and you were charged the standard subscription rate.

If none of these reasons apply and you're billed through us (HBO Nordic AB), contact us. If you're billed through another company, contact them for help.

Which payment methods are accepted?

If you subscribe at HBOMax.com, you can use Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, and iDEAL. Please note that your credit or debit card needs to support automatic recurring payments.

If you subscribe through an app store, check with your app store (Apple, Google Play, or Samsung) to find out which payment methods are accepted.

How do I change my payment method?
