Competitor HBO Max launching in May 2020

Share

AT&T and HBO will be targeting 50 million domestic subscribers and up to 90 million premium subscribers through the end of 2025 across the U.S., Latin America and Europe.

It will join Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and CBS All Access in the hotly contested on-demand streaming market, as well as Apple TV+ and Disney+, which arrive next month for $4.99 and $6.99 per month, respectively. We also want to assure you that DC Universe is still going strong with an exciting year of super-fan service coming through this year and next.

Podcasts will be available via the HBO Max mobile app, which will be pre-loaded on phones sold to AT&T customers, and available for download for everyone else. HBO Max will also offer a selection of third party acquired series and films titles that WarnerMedia believes will rival any other streaming offering in the marketplace.

HBO Max will be the most expensive of the new services that have announced prices, which could make it challenging to expand its customer base. But for existing HBO subscribers, it's still not quite clear what they'll be getting - or when they'll be getting it.

WarnerMedia is paying roughly US$500 million for the rights, according to a person familiar with the deal.

Mad Max delivers for World Series champion Nats without win
The Nationals entered the seventh inning trailing by two runs, but Anthony Rendon hit a solo home run to cut the deficit in half. In 1924, the Washington Senators, now the Minnesota Twins, defeated the New York Giants four games to three.

Inch-offs will creep rampant on HBO Max as smartly. The company announced HBO Max a little while ago, but it's giving us our first look at the service, and revealing some important details today.

Additionally, Sky and WarnerMedia agreed to extend their co-production partnership in a new deal that will see Sky Studios and HBO Max collaborate on more original content. Sky and HBO's co-production partnership has brought about Chernobyl, which picked up ten wins at last month's Emmy Awards.

The HBO Max streaming service will launch in May for $15 a month, owner AT&T said Tuesday.

Max will be the new home of Comedy Central's South Park starting in June 2020.

The service will also support content hubs, personalized profiles, and homepages (it's unclear how many of them will be available per account), downloads for offline viewing, and parental controls. That also includes AT&T wireless users who can add HBO with certain unlimited plans.
