Max Free Trial on Prime Video
Max Free Trial on Prime Video
Is Max free with Amazon Prime? For a short time! You can enjoy seven full days of Max for free when you sign up for the add-on on Prime Video. You’ll first need a Prime Video account, which offers a 30-day free trial itself, and then simply follow instructions to add Max to your subscription to access your Max free trial. Prime Video memberships cost $14.99/month and Max can be added for an additional $15.99/month. Once you sign up for the add-on, however, you can cancel it before the Max free trial period ends and avoid the additional cost. This is a great way for Prime Video users to enjoy the best Max has to offer, even if just for a little while. You might even find that you enjoy Max programming so much, that it’s worth the extra cash!
Get Max Free Trial With DirecTV
Max Free Trial With DirecTV
There are a couple of ways to get a free Max subscription when you sign up for DirecTV. Max is included in DirecTV’s Premier package which is available through satellite or internet and is on sale for just $144.99/month for three months. After your first three months, the plan will automatically renew at its regular price of $154.99/month. Keep in mind, this plan is only available under a 2-year contract, which locks in the price and all the benefits including over 150 channels, premium networks such as Max, Showtime and Starz and nearly 100,000 on-demand titles. If you want a Max deal without a contracted commitment, opt for one of the DirectTV Stream packages, all of which offer Max as an add-on. The Choice package, the most popular, runs for $99.99/month and includes over 105 channels. And right now, DirecTV Stream is offering new subscribers a three month Max free trial. After the three months, your Max subscription will auto-renew at the regular price of $15.99/month.

Get Max Free Trial With AT&T Wireless Plan

While AT&T no longer offers new customers free Max subscriptions, those with qualifying, grandfathered wireless plans can keep their free Max benefit.

Keep in mind, if for any reason you decide to sign up for a new AT&T plan, you will lose your free Max deal.
