AT&T has decided to remove its HBO Max offer for new customers who sign up for their Unlimited Elite plan. The wireless provider did not make any announcements regarding this decision.
In addition to removing this perk, Ma Bell has also made some changes to its Unlimited Elite plan. As noted by PhoneArena, the plan “no longer exists (sort of).”
The plan is no longer available on AT&T’s website. In its place, there’s a new Unlimited premium plan that basically offers the same $85 price and inclusions as the Unlimited Elite plan.
There are a couple of differences between the two plans, however. First, the HBO Max streaming perk has been removed. But as a bonus, the plan now comes with an extra 10GB mobile hotspot. So now, customers of this plan get to enjoy a total of 50GB mobile hotspot.
These changes only apply to new customers. If you have already subscribed to the Unlimited Elite plan, you can continue to enjoy HBO Max.
AT&T’s spokesman, Jim Greer, explained to CNET:
“HBO Max is a great service, but we constantly experiment with the features we offer our customers to give them the best value.”
