Prime Video subscribers will once again have the chance to catch up on the hit Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon. Warner Bros. Discovery and Amazon announced HBO Max is available again as a subscription channel on Prime Video. HBO Max was previously an option on Prime Video, but today marks the premium streaming service's return to Amazon. Starting today, Prime customers can sign up for HBO Max for $14.99 per month, the same price that HBO Max is offered as a single subscription through its own app. As an added bonus, subscribers will also have access to the combined HBO Max/discovery+ streaming service once it's finalized. There are reports Warner Bros. Discovery is vetting the combined name "Max."
"We strive to offer customers the best and widest selection of premium content available for their everyday viewing experience," said Cem Sibay, Vice President, Prime Video. "It's truly been a milestone year for Prime Video, and we are humbled by the viewer engagement and critics' response to our marquee releases. Now with the addition of HBO Max again, customers can easily add this subscription and enjoy even more award-winning and fan favorite entertainment on Prime Video."See HBO Max on Amazon Prime Video
