If you've been waiting to sign up for HBO Max, now's your chance to get the streaming service at a discounted price. From Sept. 4 through Sept. 25, HBO Max will cost $11.99 a month for 12 months, instead of its usual price of $14.99 per month.

"As we head into fall, we felt it was the perfect time to pair the incredible lineup of original programming available on HBO Max with an offer that provides customers with even more value," said Andy Forssell, EVP of WarnerMedia.

Here's how to get the $12/month pricing:

  1. Go to the HBO Max website from Friday.
  2. Click the "get the deal" button in the top right corner of the page -- it works even if you're already a subscriber.
  3. Complete the sign-up for HBO Max.
  4. The deal is also available for those who sign up for HBO Max on their iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Apple TV, as well as via Google, Hulu, YouTube TV, Xfinity, RCN, Grande Communications and Wave.

You can also get a free seven-day trial of the service.
