HBO Max Gets an official release date & showcases some new content!

Where all of HBO meets your favorite shows, movies, and new Max Originals. Streaming May 27.

HBO Max arrives May 27th

HBO Max is WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer offering launching May 27. With 10,000 hours of curated premium content anticipated at launch, HBO Max will offer powerhouse programming for everyone in the home, bringing together HBO, a robust slate of new original series, key third-party licensed programs and movies, and fan favorites from WarnerMedia’s rich library including Warner Bros., New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes and more.

All that comes with the streaming service

Along with the new advert above, the streaming service also dropped some trailers for some new shows as well. Check them out below:

“Love Life” by Paul Feig and starring Anna Kendrick
Looney Toons is making a big time comeback
Lauren Rihhimaki hosts “Craftopia“
Elmo hosts his own talk show, “Not Too Late Show.”

The $15 per month price point is steep, especially in comparison to services like Disney+ and Apple TV+, but Warner hopes the collection of content will justify that price. Essentially, HBO Max will be WarnerMedia’s all-in-one streaming service, combining current and former HBO content with movies and TV shows from Warner Brothers.

Some of the content standouts highlighted by Warner Media include:

All of HBO’s premium originals such as Westworld, Big Little Lies, Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, Veep, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Insecure, Succession, Watchmen, Barry, Euphoria, The Jinx, The Sopranos and more.

Highlights of the extensive WarnerMedia portfolio of programming and acquisitions that will be available on day one include the libraries of Friends; The Big Bang Theory; (new) Doctor Who; Rick and Morty; The Boondocks; The Bachelor; Sesame Street; The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air; CW shows such as Batwoman, Nancy Drew, and Katy Keene; the first season of DC’s Doom Patrol; The O.C.; Pretty Little Liars; the CNN catalogue of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown; and much more. Soon after, the platform offering will continue to grow adding the libraries of South Park, Gossip Girl, The West Wing, and more within the first year of launch.

Available films will include Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz, The Matrix, The Goonies, When Harry Met Sally, The Lord of the Rings, Citizen Kane, Gremlins, and the Lego movies, along with every DC film from the last decade, including Wonder Woman, Justice League, and every Batman and Superman movie from the last 40 years.

If you’re an HBO Now subscriber currently, you’ll get access to HBO Max at no additional cost, if your subscription is “billed directly through HBO.” If your HBO Now subscription is billed through a third-party — such as Apple TV Channels — HBO says it will have “more details as we get closer to our launch date.”

Personally, I am still not completely sold on the service, but at least now the streaming service has my attention with new content.
