Max teams up with YouTube Primetime

For a while now YouTube, the most well-known video-sharing platform has made use of its Primetime Channels to stream other third-party content from a variety of networks. Now, Warner Bros.' Max (formerly HBO Max) has joined forces with YouTube to offer an ads-free version of Max via Primetime.

This means that American viewers will have the option of watching various scripted and non-scripted programming that comes from Warner Bros. brands like HBO, TLC, Food Network, HGTV, Cartoon Network and OWN starting on December 15.

This is the latest effort by Warner Bros. to encourage Max subscriptions. Max's With-Ads tier is currently priced at $9.99 per month, while its Standard Ad-Free plan is $15.99 per month. There is also its Ultimate Ad-Free, the most expensive pricing of $19.99 each month.

With YouTube Primetime, users can browse, sign-up for, and stream their favorite shows, movies, sports and more. With so many streaming options today, Primetime Channels are designed to make it easier for viewers to view content from multiple streaming platforms at a single location as well as sign up direct to YouTube.

How do I watch Max content on YouTube Primetime

Primetime Channels are accessible by clicking the Explore tab on the left side of YouTube, then navigating to "Movies and TV". You can subscribe and watch more than 40 streaming services, many providing a free trial for seven days before needing a paid subscription.

YouTube primetime channels work similar to Amazon Prime Channels. They permit you to stream across various channels through YouTube's YouTube app. Also, it allows you to manage all of your subscription services from one location.

Other features available in the YouTube app or website include the latest addition of the Multiview feature, which offers those who love sports the chance to watch a variety of games at once. The progression of the platform demonstrates that Google is working to make YouTube serve as more than a video-based site it once was, but as a multi-functional entertainment platform, and in its ideal case, as a go-to video streaming option for Google users.
