The launch date for HBO Max has remained open for any time in May since it was announced but now it has an official date.
The streaming service will officially be launching on May 27 and is premiering with a ton of content from Warner Media and AT&T’s catalogue.
The streaming service was initially revealed at the tail end of 2018 with a slew of shows announced for its launch shortly after.
HBO Max is including titles from HBO’s content as well as the WarnerMedia library, including Warner Bros., New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes, TCM, and more.
“Even in the midst of this unprecedented pandemic, the all-star teams behind every aspect of HBO Max will deliver a platform and a robust slate of content that is varied, of the highest quality, and second to none,” Chairman of Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer Robert Greenblatt says in a press release. “I’m knocked out by the breadth and depth of our new offering, from the Max originals, our Warner Bros library and acquisition titles from around the world, and of course the entirety of HBO.”
What you will be able to see on HBO Max though includes a ton of titles to get stoked about. The service revealed back in 2019 that South Park, Gossip Girl, Rick And Morty and plenty more are available.
The service will cost $14.99 a month putting it at a higher cost than Netflix and Disney+. AT&T customers who already have HBO subscriptions won’t have to pay for the service though. They’ll also have bundle options available including other services they offer. The service’s original shows will follow a more standard TV format than other streaming services. Shows are releasing new episodes weekly instead of all at once.
They’ve also revealed several trailers for some of the titles coming to the service which you can see below. You can learn more about HBO Max here.
