And all seasons of Friends, South Park and The Big Bang Theory will also be available.
WarnerMedia will launch the project in conjunction with AT&T. Subscribers of the current HBO Now service and users of AT&T premium packages will get free access to HBO Max. In 2021, they plan to launch the service in Latin America and Europe.
Unlike Netflix, HBO Max will rely not only on algorithms, but also on people-supervised lists. Celebrities will receive their pages where they can offer users recommendations in the format of stories.
Using the “Highlight” function, the creators of the service want to solve the problem of a long choice of a movie or a series – users spend eight minutes each time only to view options. Highlight will offer specific content based on subscriber preferences.
The creators of the service also claim to have solved the problem of personal recommendations in joint accounts. HBO Max will only consider individual recommendations. Podcasts will also appear in the online cinema.
At launch, HBO Max will have about 10 thousand hours of content; by 2020, 31 original series will appear. We collected the main projects that will be presented in the service library:
