WarnerMedias kommende Direct-to-Consumer streamingtjeneste vil få flere eksklusive titler.
Venner (Friends) er fortsat en af de populæreste serier i verden, også hos Netflix hvor den endnu kan streames. Men WarnerMedia er i færd med at trække rettigheder hjem, for eksklusiv visning på egen streamingtjeneste, ligesom konkurrenten Disney+ også gør det.
Nu kender vi navnet på Warners kommende streamingtjeneste. Den får navnet HBO Max og lanceres til næste år.
Andre titler der finder vej til HBO Max er kommende Batwoman-serie, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ og ‘Pretty Little Liars’.
HBO Max vil samle indhold fra HBO, Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes mm. under samme streamingtjeneste.
Hvad det kommer til at betyde for HBO-aktiviteterne udenfor USA er ikke meldt ud. Altså om HBO Max også med tiden vil gå globalt, og opsluge og erstatte tjenester som HBO Nordic.
