HBO MAX, WARNERMEDIA’S NEW STREAMING SERVICE IS COMING MAY 27
HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s new streaming service combining HBO with Warner Bros. movies and Turner TV shows, will launch on May 27th, the company announced today.
The subscription-streaming package, with some 10,000 hours of content out of the gate, will debut May 27 in the U.S., priced at $14.99 monthly.
HBO Max — with the tagline “Where HBO meets so much more” — will include all the programming from HBO; a slate of new original series; third-party licensed content like “Friends,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “South Park” and all Studio Ghibli films; and movies from Warner Bros., New Line and DC like “Joker,” “Suicide Squad,” “Wonder Woman,” “The Matrix,” “Casablanca” and “The Wizard of Oz.” In addition, HBO Max will be stocked with content from other WarnerMedia brands including CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth and Looney Tunes.
Originals on HBO Max set to be available starting May 27 include scripted comedy “Love Life” starring Anna Kendrick, from Lionsgate Television and Paul Feig’s Feigco Entertainment; documentary film “On the Record” about accusations of sexual harassment and rape against hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons; “Legendary,” an underground ballroom dance competition series; “Craftopia,” hosted by YouTube star LaurDIY; an all-new “Looney Tunes Cartoons” from Warner Bros. Animation; and Sesame Workshop’s “The Not Too Late Show with Elmo.”
Bell Media has entered into a deal with Warner Bros. to bring the library of shows connected to the forthcoming streaming service HBO Max to Canada.
In Canada, HBO content has already been available inside Crave, It will become available to the 2.7 million Crave subscribers.
That content will not all appear in Crave at once. Part of the reason Bell has been able to secure streaming rights for American content is because they’re bidding to broadcast it on traditional TV as well.
No date has been confirmed as of yet in Canada. But stay tuned!
