Unexpected Max subscription charge

Find support for an unexpected subscription charge.

Charges Q&A

What if the charge amount isn't what I expected?

Depending on your provider, you can choose from 3 subscription plans:

  • With Ads: $9.99/month or $99.99/year (16% savings)
  • Ad-Free: $15.99/month or $149.99/year (over 20% savings)
  • Ultimate Ad-Free: $19.99/month or $199.99/year (over 16% savings)

If your subscription charge isn't what you expected, here are some possible reasons:

  • Applicable taxes are added to your subscription charge based on your billing ZIP code.
  • You may have a different plan or billing period. Which plan do I have?
  • Your promotional or discounted period may have ended and you were charged the standard subscription rate.

If none of these reasons apply and your subscription is billed through WarnerMedia Direct, please contact us for help (instead of your payment service). If you're billed through another company, contact them for help. Find out who bills you.

Why was I charged after I canceled?

If you were charged after canceling your Max subscription, here are some possible reasons:

  • You canceled your subscription too close to your auto-renewal date. Some providers may require you to cancel at least 24 hours before your next billing period starts (this varies by billing provider). If you have questions, please contact your billing provider. Find out who bills you.
  • Your subscription is still active. To make sure you're not charged again, go to Check if your subscription is active.
  • You have multiple accounts and subscriptions. For help finding your accounts, go to Find multiple accounts.
