Hulu Adds HBO and Cinemax in Time for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7

If cord-cutting was starting to seem more complex than a cable package itself, Hulu is here to help. Just in time for Game of Thrones, the streaming service has announced HBO and Cinemax add-ons for your subscription.
Any level of Hulu’s subscription packages can now add the HBO networks (including a re-branded Cinemax), albeit with the expected additional fee. HBO pricing will cost you an additional $14.99, compared with Cinemax at $9.99 (more or less what you’d pay for HBO NOW).
Hulu previously added Showtime to its add-on offerings, while Amazon Prime also notably offers both networks as add-on subscriptions. Game of Thrones is certainly the most immediate benefit for Hulu subscribers, though there’s also the upcoming seasons of Ballers and Insecure, to say nothing of this fall’s coming returns, or the HBO shows teased from Comic-Con 2017 in the coming weeks.
By combining HBO’s iconic programming with our world class user experience and deep content offering, Hulu is giving viewers easy and highly personalized access to the very best of television.
You can check out the trailer above, and modify your subscription in time for the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere on July 16.
