Enjoy HBO titles with HBO NOW.

The launch of HBO Max has seen the release of many classic and new top series, ranging from Friends to Rick and Morty.

However, one question existing HBO users have is whether they are eligible for a free upgrade.

Many people will have experienced their HBO Now app update and turn into the HBO Max app.

Others will need to manually download the HBO Max app, but they will also receive a free upgrade.

Those who subscribe to HBO Now through the HBO Now website, Apple and Google qualify for the upgrade.

Currently, those subscribed to HBO Now through other services, such as Amazon Prime Video Channels, Roku or an internet provider, will not be upgraded to HBO Max.

To be more precise, those who receive HBO Now through the below providers will qualify. The rest will not. Those who do qualify will handle the upgrade differently, so contact them directly for more information.

  • DirecTV/AT&T TV
  • Hulu
  • YouTube TV
  • Comcast
  • Charter/Spectrum
  • Altice
  • Verizon
  • Cox Communications
  • NCTC

The main appeal in terms of content with HBO Max is the fact it provides access to Friends and the Harry Potter franchise.

Most of the DC Extended Universe titles are also present. The Studio Ghibli library is there, too, except Grave of the Fireflies.
