The streamer will offer a variety of subscription options, as well as local originals in the film and television space.
WarnerMedia has announced that its HBO Max streaming service will launch in 39 Latin American and Caribbean territories at the end of June.
HBO Max offers movies and TV shows from HBO, DC, Warner Bros. and New Line, and there will also be a wealth of children’s content available on the platform, which will be available for download on a multitude of devices. Additionally, the streamer will offer a variety of subscription options as well as local original productions from local talents.
“We are delighted with the launch of HBO Max in Latin America and the Caribbean, which is the first step in bringing WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer service to consumers outside of the US and around the world,” he said. Johannes larcher, director of HBO Max International. “By combining HBO with the best of WarnerMedia’s catalog of movies and series, as well as locally produced content by master storytellers from Latin America, HBO Max will offer fans in the region an unforgettable and enriching entertainment experience.”
At launch, the existing HBO GO service in Latin America and the Caribbean will be phased out, so existing customers with direct billing from HBO GO, as well as those who are billed through eligible partners, will gain instant access to HBO Max. Subscribers will also have access to an all-new HBO Max app that reflects the product experience available in the US, including new features that will improve the way fans connect with HBO Max content. The app will run on the HBO Max global technology stack, which has met high consumer demand in the US with stability during the most popular programming events.
Designed for everyone in the household, HBO Max will provide access to quality content drawn from 100 years of iconic and beloved WarnerMedia programming for people of all ages. In addition to Looney tunes cartoons, there will be offers from Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, as well as TNT, TBS, CNN and truTV. Additional details and promotional offers will be received shortly.
Elsewhere, HBO-branded streaming services in Europe (the Nordic countries, Spain, Central Europe, and Portugal) are scheduled to upgrade to HBO Max later this year, so if you are one of our European readers, stay tuned for more information as it arrives. Until then, check out a promo below for HBO Max’s Latin American release, and see if you were as relieved as I was to see older Warner Bros. classics included, like White House Y A Clockwork Orange.
Don’t expect Pascal to be on the set of ‘The Mandalorian’ so much in the future.
