Switching to MAX from HBO -beware "free trial" for game sites

Making the switch, they ask for a credit card to verify your location but they immediately charged the card $39.99 for a gaming subscription. The free trial to the gaming site was supposed to be 7 days but the charge showed up in 30 minutes.

I get HBO Max included in my ATT 1000 Gig Service.
I see they want me to Setup a new ID.

I decided to wait to see if there were problems.
From your post… I think I should be careful.

Plus, do i really need 1 Gig Service.
I could probably be OK with half that.

I took the gig service because the price increase was about that of HBO… which I seldom use.
