Hulu Officially Announces It Is Adding HBO & Cinemax




After a week of rumors, today it is official: HBO and Cinemax are coming to Hulu.

Starting today, viewers using the new Hulu experience can now subscribe to HBO’s critically acclaimed, award-winning series—both live and on demand—for just $14.99 per month. You can also add Cinemax for $9.99 per month. Both premium add-ons are now available across all of Hulu’s subscription plans, just in time for the premieres of Game of Thrones, The Defiant Ones, Ballers, Insecure, and more.

“By combining HBO’s iconic programming with our world class user experience and deep content offering, Hulu is giving viewers easy and highly personalized access to the very best of television,” said Tim Connolly, senior vice president, head of Distribution and Partnerships at Hulu. “With this important new partnership, fans can now watch Game of Thrones live every Sunday, binge watch all six seasons of The Sopranos or catch up on Westworld alongside our live TV, sports, classic TV shows and Hulu originals—all without ever having to leave the Hulu app.”

“Hulu has been a pioneer in the television streaming business, building a robust user base by offering top-tier programming from a variety of networks,” said Sofia Chang, executive vice president, Worldwide Digital Distribution and Home Entertainment, HBO. “We see them as the perfect partner to help us fulfill our promise to HBO fans, bringing our unparalleled programming to audiences in the most sophisticated, convenient and innovative ways.”

With this add-on East and West coast live feeds of HBO and Cinemax will be available to Hulu viewers on supported devices. You will also have access to HBO NOW through your Hulu account if you subscribe. Additional live channels include HBO 2, HBO Family, HBO Latino, HBO Comedy, HBO Signature HD, HBO Zone, MoreMAX HD, ActionMAX HD, ThrillerMAX HD, MovieMAX HD, 5StarMAX HD, and OuterMAX HD and will become available within the add-ons to Hulu viewers in the coming weeks.

Currently the new Hulu user experience is available on the Apple TV (fourth generation), Xbox One, iOS, and Android mobile devices. The add-ons will be available on more devices as Hulu’s updated experience continues to roll out across additional major platforms this summer.
