How to Watch Tenet Online
Tenet is Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi action thriller starring John David Washington as a secret agent sent on a time-bending mission.
For fans of Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk, a new Nolan movie is an event. But Tenet didn’t get the usual tentpole fanfare of a major theatrical release. COVID-19 led to the shuddering of movie theaters and eclipsed the usual premiers of dozens of new films. Far fewer people saw Tenet during its limited theater release in the U.S. than the typical Nolan film.
Now Tenet is finally coming to HBO Max on Saturday, May 1 at 8 P.M.
HBO Max recently stopped offering free trials on its website. But there is still one way for cord cutters and streaming enthusiasts to get a free 7-day trial of HBO Max.
HBO Max free trial through Hulu
Hulu still offers a free trial of HBO Max tucked away inside its website. You need to have a Hulu subscription to take advantage of the free trial. Don’t have one? You can sign for a 30-day free trial of Hulu. Then follow these steps.
- Go to add-ons under the “Account” tab and click on one-week free trial of HBO Max.
- Once you sign up for HBO Max, download the HBO Max app to your streaming device.
- The HBO Max app will ask you to sign in through your TV or mobile provider.
- Choose “Hulu” as your provider, and you’ll have full access to the HBO Max during your free trial.
Keep in mind that once your free trials end, you will be billed $5.99 per month for Hulu, and $14.99 per month for HBO Max. So if you decide not to keep Hulu or HBO Max after a couple of days, you’ll need to go back to your Hulu account and cancel online.
Is HBO Max on Roku?
Yes. You can now download the HBO Max app on Roku.
Roku no longer offers standalone subscriptions to HBO or HBO Max through its Roku Channel store. So your options are to sign up to HBO Max directly through its website, or get a free week as a Hulu add-on.
Upcoming releases on HBO Max
COVID-19 led movie theaters across the U.S. to temporarily close or offer limited seating.
That prompted Warner Bros. to release all of their 2021 films simultaneously in the theater and HBO Max. That has drawn ire from plenty of directors, including Nolan. But Warner Bros. is stick with its plan.
A number of brand new films including the “The Matrix 4,” and Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” remake are scheduled to hit HBO Max later this year.
- Mortal Kombat: April 16
- The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It: June 4
- In The Heights: June 18
