HBO Max has now removed their free trial option before Wonder Woman 1984‘s release on the streaming service in a few weeks.
WarnerMedia is trying to make its mark in the streaming wars as COVID-19 rages on around the world. While the studio launched Christopher Nolan’s Tenet in theaters a few months back, they recently announced a theatrical and HBO Max Christmas Day release for Wonder Woman 1984. On Thursday, Warner Bros. took that move one step further by setting their entire 2021 slate for HBO Max.
The news of major tentpoles heading to HBO Max is undoubtedly a major blow to theaters that are already struggling amid the pandemic. When Wonder Woman 1984 is released on HBO Max, it will be available for a month at no additional cost unlike Disney’s approach with Mulan. Up until now, you could give HBO Max a try for free, but that trial option has now been removed with more subscribers expected to be on the way for Wonder Woman 1984. HBO Max currently costs 14.99 per month or six months for $69.99.
