Starting Thursday September 23, YouTube TV customers can take advantage of a special promo giving them a free, five day trial to HBO Max and Cinemax. Unlike regular trial periods, you won’t have to remember to cancel before the five days are up. Instead, it’s more like a free preview courtesy of YouTube TV.
You’ll be able to access the Cinemax and HBO Max channels right from within your YouTube TV grid guide. *Note, if you’re using a custom grid, you’ll need to go to Settings > Live Guide to add them to your lineup.
YouTube TV sent out the following email to its customers announcing the promo:
Starting Thursday, September 23, you can take a long weekend to explore HBO Max’s long list of noteworthy series, from classics like The Sopranos to brand-new ones like Scenes from a Marriage. And with Cinemax, you get original series like Strike Back, fan favorites like Kill Bill, and everything in between. There’s no action needed on your part. Just watch and record away through Monday, September 27.
With this promo offer, YouTube TV customers can spend more than an entire weekend watching all the popular shows Cinemax and HBO Max have to offer, without paying a dime. Five days is definitely enough time to binge watch entire seasons of The White Lotus, The Flight Attendant, Euphoria, or the award winning Mare of Easttown and Hacks which recently took home Emmys last Sunday.
