PSA: You don’t need to share Google Credentials when using YouTube TV for HBO Max

HBO already had two streaming platforms out there in HBO Go and HBO Now. Both these platforms offer a variety of content and different price points which appeals to different users. The company recently came out with another streaming venture titled HBO Max which provides you with all of HBO’s content right on your mobile device.

Moreover, if you are already subscribed to HBO via your TV provider then you don’t need to pay any additional cost to access HBO Max. If you are not subscribed to HBO already, then you can add HBO Max as an add-on for $14.99 per month, with a 7-day free trial period.

Logging into HBO Max is easy

Now, to log in to HBO Max, you can simply use your service provider’s credentials and you will be able to watch your favorite shows and movies on the go in no time. Many users that have subscribed to Youtube TV can also avail of this offer as Youtube TV is one of the supported providers by HBO.
