HBO Max is pretty awesome, among the current streaming services. Netflix has slowly become mostly their own shovelware shows, Amazon Prime rotates out good stuff quickly and has most good things moved to extra channels or rentals, Hulu has commercials, Disney, CBS etc. all have limited content.
They also have somehow convinced Warner Bros to release their new movies on HBO Max the same day they hit the theaters! Great in this plagued era, although to be fair, so far WW1984 was total shit. The sizzle reel was a bit unintelligible, but they did have some titles at the end, namely numero uno, Dune. At the very least, pick up HBO Max for a month at the end of 2021 for Dune.
It is a bit more expensive than the rest though. $14.99 or $15.99 or whatever.
It also feels like it's time for me to rewatch The Wire.
IIRC The Wire is on Prime, so no need for HBO Max if you already own Prime.
At least in the US when I look, The Wire is available to rent or buy on Prime at the moment, or if you have the HBO prime channel. That's hardly my only reason for having HBO Max or Prime though, I've been watching all sorts of new and old stuff on HBO Max, and Prime of course, is thriving from me buying everything I can to avoid going to retail stores.
If anything, I'm leaning towards cancelling Netflix finally. It's been awhile since I've watched anything I would consider good to great on that service.
