HBO Max and Cricket announced a partnership to give new and existing customers the ad-supported tier of the streaming service for free with Cricket’s $60/month unlimited plan, beginning tomorrow.
“We are always looking for ways to bring our customers the best value possible. We know they are hungry for content and HBO Max offers the most cutting-edge and high-quality entertainment available,” said Tony Mokry, vice president and chief marketing officer, Cricket Wireless. “From cult classics to new HBO Max Originals, we know our customers will be smiling ear to ear when they dive in. We’re so excited to be able to bring this incredible service and library of content to our beloved customers.”
New and existing Cricket customers on the $60/month unlimited plan will be able to watch HBO Max shows and movies including originals like “The White Lotus,” the iconic library of Warner Bros. films, fan favorite HBO shows, original series from CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, truTV, TBS, TNT and more. The ad-supported tier normally costs $9.99/month.
The $60/month wireless plan includes 15GB of mobile hotspot, 100 GB of cloud storage, unlimited calls to and from Mexico and Canada and access to the 5G network for customers with a 5G-enabled device.
“Since launching HBO Max last year, we’ve continually expanded customers’ access to the product, and partnering with Cricket, our first prepaid wireless distributor of the streaming platform, is a great opportunity to offer millions of customers instant access to HBO Max at no cost to them,” said Jennifer Mirgorod, Head of Partner Management and Partner Marketing, WarnerMedia.
