If I currently have hbo/hbo max as part of my Cox cable package is the price going to change when it changes to Max? On the HBO FAQ it says if you have HBO Max through your cable subscription to “check with your provider.”
This is a forum for customers to assist other customers with technical issues. You would need to contact Cox for that information.
The only potential increase I can see is if you want to stream UHD content. The new Max platform will have an Ad-Lite plan ($10), Ad-Free ($16) and Ultimate ($20). Only the Ultimate plan will have any UHD content.
You're probably currently paying $15.99 like me but if you want the Ad-Lite or Ultimate, you'll have to contact Cox.
FYI, some providers like FIOS are including the Ultimate plan for the first 6 months. Any word on if Cox will do the same?
I wouldn't call it a provider's offering but instead WB's transition from HBO Max to Max. According to CNET, "Warner Bros. Discovery has said some features...like 4K...will still be available on current subscription plans for six months as the app transitions to Max."
I don't think HBO really had much in the 4K content. I don't know. I don't steam movies.

They seem to have around 30 4K movies as seen here.
