Cricket Adds HBO Max to Premium Plan

Cricket is now offering a free HBO Max subscription included with its top-end unlimited plan. The HBO Max subscription is the ad-supported tier, which is normally $10/month on its own. The eligible plan is otherwise unchanged, and runs $60/month for one line (or as low as $32/month/line for five lines). Cricket currently offers two unlimited plans: one for $55 and one for $60. The $60 plan adds 5G access, 15 GB of mobile hotspot data, 150 GB of cloud storage, and now HBO Max. Perks like this are currently rare with prepaid plans in the US. Cricket is a brand of AT&T, which currently owns HBO, although AT&T has started the process of spinning off its media businesses.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.

Verizon has introduced a new entry-level unlimited plan that's $5/month cheaper. The new Welcome Unlimited plan is mostly similar to the company's 5G Start plan (which was previously the cheapest, and remains available), but does not include the 5 GB of mobile hotspot data that was recently added to that plan.
