HBO Max is now selling its ads-included plan for $1.99 a month for the first three months, an $8 a month discount over the regular rate. The discount, which would save $24 over the three months, is a Black Friday promotion. (The regular rate will apply in month four unless you cancel prior to the end of the three months.)

The deal, which will be available until November 28, is good for new and returning customers. The offer is also only available at the HBO Max web site and Roku, Google Play, Apple and Amazon.

HBO Max, the streaming version of the cable/satellite HBO, also has an ads-free plan for $14.99 a month. But there is currently no discount available for that package.
