HBO Max video streaming service coming May 2020 for $15 per month

30 October 2019 0

AT&T and WarnerMedia have confirmed that their video streaming service HBO Max will arrive in May 2020. An exact release date is currently missing but we now have a better idea of when to expect one more such service. It has been priced at $14.99 per month which is the same as HBO Now but expensive than many other streaming options available in the market.

HBO Max will be a free service for anyone who has either subscribed to HBO Now or to HBO via AT&T. All AT&T premium video, broadband, and mobile package users will also get HBO Max bundles for absolutely free. These offers are likely to give AT&T a headstart in terms of user base as it already has about 10 million users subscribed to the HBO cable channel.

As per the announcement, HBO Max will have over 10,000 hours worth of "curated premium" content to watch at the time of launch. It will offer the entire HBO catalog along with various originals and globally popular TV shows and movies. There will be new content but you will be able to watch content as old as 100 years. Some of the content providers include Warner Bros., New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, and Looney Tunes.


It means you will get to see shows like Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, Friends, South Park, Rick & Morty, Impractical Jokers, Westworld, Major Crimes, and The Alienist. There are also some titles that are currently under works and will come exclusively on the platform. These include College Girls by Mindy Kaling, Rap Sh*t by Issa Rae, Strange Adventures by Greg Berlanti, Green Lantern by Berlanti Productions, and House of the Dragon (a Game of Thrones prequel based on Fire & Blood book by George R.R. Martin). For those who love movies, it will have over 1,800 movie titles including The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Matrix, Lego, all DC movies, and all Superman and Batman movies.


While AI-powered content recommendations are available on all streaming services, HBO Max will also offer recommendations made by actual humans including celebrities. It will further allow users to create shared homepages where multiple users can see suggestions that are likely to match their tastes. It is aimed at helping in those situations when multiple users find it hard to agree upon one TV show or movie to watch.

HBO Max will go live first in the United States starting May 2020. It will be expanded to Latin America and Europe but there is no specific timeline for that yet. The team has set a goal of reaching 50 million domestic subscribers and 75 - 90 million premium subscribers by the end of 2025.
