HBO Max will launch for $14.99 in the United States next year


WarnerMedia on Tuesday revealed the official launch date and subscription fee for its upcoming streaming service HBO Max.

Launching in May next year, the platform will cost users $14.99 per month and feature “10 000 hours of premium content”.

“With this entire company coming together, we will have one of the most robust collections of premium streaming content that will appeal to all demographics in the household,” WarnerMedia chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a press release.

The platform will include classic titles from Warner Bros., DC, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network and HBO. In fact, HBO Max will feature “the entire HBO service” and popular series like The Big Bang Theory and Doctor Who.

In addition to the line-up of content, WarnerMedia also revealed what HBO Max will look like and how it will work.

“HBO Max will combine Human Powered Discovery and analytics in novel ways to make it much easier for viewers to quickly find the content they are passionate about,” the company explained.

This means that recommended content on HBO Max will be curated by other people.

Furthermore, the platform will also feature “shared homepages” for co-viewing to ensure that personal homepage recommendations are not thrown off when watching with other people.

At launch, HBO Max will be exclusively available in the United States.
