Heads up, select Max subscribers. Starting next month (December 5), Max is changing up the ad-free plan for legacy users, removing the ability to stream 4K titles with Dolby Atmos.

In addition to limiting all streams to Full HD, Max is now also limiting the amount of concurrent streams to 2, down from 3. Overall, it’s a substantial nerf to the ad-free plan, especially when you consider it recently got a price increase to $15.99/month. For those looking to keep 4K streams, you’ll need to upgrade to the Ultimate plan.

Here’s a breakdown of the changes, directly from Max.

Current Plan Features: Ad-Free Plan

  • Stream on 3 devices at once
  • Full HD video resolution with select titles in 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos
  • Download up to 30 titles to watch on the go

New Plan Features: Ad-Free Plan

  • Stream on 2 devices at once
  • Full HD video resolution
  • Download up to 30 titles to watch on the go

These changes take effect the December billing cycle.
