Stream with HBO Services
You can also stream The Third Day on HBO’s services, like HBO Max and HBO Now.
HBO Max is HBO’s newest streaming service and Lovecraft Country will be streaming there. You can try out the service for free for seven days before you start paying the monthly fee.
HBO Now (now just called “HBO”) is HBO’s older standalone streaming service. It costs the same as HBO Max, but HBO Max has more content. HBO Max is essentially an upgrade to HBO Now. If you already have a subscription to HBO Now, then you also have a subscription to HBO Max. You should already have access to HBO Max at no extra cost if you meet certain qualifications.
HBO Go used to be your choice if you had a cable or satellite subscription that already includes HBO in the package. The app was removed from most devices on July 31. If you used to HBO Go, then you might already have free access to HBO Max. You’ll have free access if you subscribe to HBO through one of the providers at this link, and more providers are being added all the time.
