HBO NOW student subscription

If you already have an HBO NOW student subscription, you can sign in to HBO Max. You will continue to be billed $9.99/month (plus applicable taxes) as long as you continue to be a qualifying student.

Note  If we can't collect payment for your subscription, we'll send you an email letting you know that payment was unsuccessful and your subscription will be canceled.

We periodically confirm your student enrollment status which is required for the student discount rate. If we can't verify your student status, we'll send you an email just before your student subscription expires. Once your subscription expires, you'll be prompted to subscribe at the standard subscription price. See How much does HBO Max cost?

HBO Max is currently not offering student discount subscriptions. HBO Max is available through a number of colleges and universities. For a list of colleges, see Sign in through a college or university.
