More than 18 months after the initial announcement of a new HBO subscription video streaming service, the premium cable giant is now slated to launch its HBO Max app tomorrow on May 27, 2020.
According to Warner Media, HBO Max will feature some 2,000 films – including every movie currently in the HBO library — along with a myriad of hit shows (The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, Top Gear, South Park, Rick And Morty, Friends, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Doctor Who, etc.) that, when combined with the aforementioned movies, accounts for more than 10,000 hours of content. Furthermore, the platform is scheduled to add even more shows and movies all through June, and assumably in the months that follow. On top of every HBO Original Series and film, the service will also boast a variety of HBO Max Originals that are exclusive to the new platform, plus a wide selection of children’s content. Like most major streaming services, HBO Max can be streamed on computers, smart TVs, and tablets and smartphones, and offers the ability to download episodes to watch later, sans WiFi. The subscription starts at $12 a month (for the first 12 months, after which time the fee rises to $15 + tax).
