HBO Max is a streaming service run by Creator/WarnerMedia, owned by AT&T. Named after the premium Creator/{{HBO}} channel, content on the service encompasses numerous studios and media libraries under the [=WarnerMedia=] brand.

Announced in the wake of AT&T's successful buyout of Time Warner, HBO Max is their official answer to Creator/{{Netflix}}, Creator/PrimeVideo, Creator/CBSAllAccess, Creator/DisneyPlus, Creator/{{Hulu}}, Creator/AppleTVPlus and Creator/{{Peacock}}. In the lead-up to this service, some previously existing streaming services owned by [=WarnerMedia=], such as [=FilmStruck=] and Drama Fever, were shut down, with their content to be absorbed into HBO Max. Others, such as Creator/DCUniverse, will continue to operate independently while having some of their programming also available on HBO Max from the start, though [=WarnerMedia=] does plan to consolidate all existing services within HBO Max at some point. Additionally, some series that are owned by [=WarnerMedia=], most notably ''Series/{{Friends}}'', were migrated from existing streamers to the new platform.

In addition to carrying all content from the HBO network (including content from Creator/{{Disney}}'s Creator/TwentiethCenturyStudios and Creator/{{Universal}} Pictures[=/=]Creator/FocusFeatures, both of whom have first-run output agreements through 2022 and 2023, respectively), third-party content providers include Creator/JJAbrams' Bad Robot Productions (who inked a $500 million exclusivity deal), John Wells Productions (who have been with Warner for decades), Creator/ReeseWitherspoon's Hello Sunshine, Creator/SonyPicturesAnimation, Creator/{{MGM}} and Creator/SesameWorkshop. Additionally, HBO Max secured the streaming rights to ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''Franchise/DoctorWho'' and several other [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] original series, and much of Creator/StudioGhibli's anime film catalog.

For select pay-TV providers (including AT&T's own [=DirecTV=] and AT&T TV services), subscribers to the linear HBO channel will automatically gain access to Max content at no additional cost, and the standalone HBO Now streaming service will slowly transition to Max for direct and participating third-party subscribers. Third-party providers who signed on to provide Max alongside their HBO add-ons for new and existing subscribers include Apple TV, Google Play, Sony (for UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 consoles), Microsoft (for UsefulNotes/XboxOne consoles) and Hulu, with Website/{{YouTube}} TV also confirming that it would carry the linear HBO and Cinemax channels with HBO Max included, a first for that service which had not carried the channels beforehand. Services who haven't signed on for HBO Max such as Amazon Prime and Roku will continue to carry HBO, but will not feature any Max content. In any event, however, Max content can only be accessed through the HBO Max app, with the aforementioned eligible HBO subscribers being required to sign in through their participating TV provider or service for authentication (Apple, Google Play, Sony, Samsung and Microsoft all replaced the HBO Now app with HBO Max on their storefronts for eligible subscribers).

The beta launched in late 2019, while the full service, complete with original content, launched on May 27th, 2020. The teaser trailer for the new service can be seen [[https://youtu.be/eASkqrwdg7Y here]].

In Asia, the service is instead launched as HBO Go, and was initially only available with a subscription from select pay TV providers. The requirement was dropped in early May 2020 and can now be subscribed independently using an Apple Pay or Google Pay account, although complementary access is still available by signing up with select pay TV providers.

Announced in the wake of AT&T's successful buyout of Time Warner, HBO Max is their official answer to Creator/{{Netflix}}, Creator/PrimeVideo, CBS All Access, Creator/DisneyPlus, Creator/{{Hulu}}, Creator/AppleTVPlus and Creator/{{Peacock}}. In the lead-up to this service, some previously existing streaming services owned by [=WarnerMedia=], such as [=FilmStruck=] and Drama Fever, were shut down, with their content to be absorbed into HBO Max. Others, such as Creator/DCUniverse, will continue to operate independently while having some of their programming also available on HBO Max from the start, though [=WarnerMedia=] does plan to consolidate all existing services within HBO Max at some point. Additionally, some series that are owned by [=WarnerMedia=], most notably ''Series/{{Friends}}'', were migrated from existing streamers to the new platform.

HBO Max is an upcoming streaming service run by [=WarnerMedia=], owned by AT&T. Named after the premium Creator/{{HBO}} channel, content on the service encompasses numerous studios and media libraries under the [=WarnerMedia=] brand.

Announced in the wake of AT&T's successful buyout of Time Warner, HBO Max is their official answer to Creator/{{Netflix}}, Creator/PrimeVideo, CBS All Access, Creator/DisneyPlus[=/=]Creator/{{Hulu}}, Creator/AppleTVPlus and Peacock. In the lead-up to this service, some previously existing streaming services owned by [=WarnerMedia=], such as [=FilmStruck=] and Drama Fever, were shut down, with their content to be presumably absorbed into HBO Max.

Additionally, some series that are owned by [=WarnerMedia=], most notably ''Series/{{Friends}}'', were migrated from existing streamers to the new platform.

Third party content providers include Creator/JJAbrams' Bad Robot Productions (who inked a $500 million exclusivity deal), John Wells Productions (who have been with Warner for decades), Creator/ReeseWitherspoon's Hello Sunshine, Creator/SonyPicturesAnimation, Creator/{{MGM}} and Creator/SesameWorkshop. Additionally, HBO Max secured the streaming rights to ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''Franchise/DoctorWho'' and several other [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] original series, and much of Creator/StudioGhibli's anime film catalog.

However, one partner service that stands out the most is Creator/{{Hulu}} (majority-owned and operated by [=WarnerMedia=] competitor Creator/{{Disney}}, who also operates Disney+ and Creator/{{ESPN}}+ alongside Hulu), which will be a '''direct''' competitor to HBO Max due to both primarily relying on their parent studios for original content (as opposed to Netflix, Amazon Prime and Apple TV+, which rely on smaller third-party studios for content). The announcement that Hulu would become a launch partner for HBO Max five weeks before its official launch date came as a genuine surprise by some because of this, as Hulu subscribers now have access to content that will ''directly clash'' with Hulu's own stockpile of Disney-produced and/or owned programming, side-by-side.programming.[[note]]To Hulu's credit, it makes sense from a business standpoint to allow subscribers access to HBO Max, as the price for the HBO add-on is the same as an HBO Max subscription, and since the number of HBO subscribers through Hulu is likely substantial, leaving them in the cold would've hurt Hulu just as much as it would hurt HBO.[[/note]]

Announced in the wake of AT&T's successful buyout of Time Warner, HBO Max is their official answer to Creator/{{Netflix}}, Creator/PrimeVideo, Creator/DisneyPlus[=/=]Creator/{{Hulu}}, and the upcoming streaming services by Comcast and Apple. Because of this, other "niche" streaming services are getting shut down to make room for it, such as [=FilmStruck=] and Drama Fever. Creator/DCUniverse will continue to operate independently, however their content (such as ''Series/{{Titans|2018}}'' and ''Series/DoomPatrol2019'') will be available on HBO Max from the start. Additionally, the Series/{{Arrowverse}}, ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'' (which is billed as a Netflix original outside the USA) and ''Series/{{Friends}}'' are confirmed to be removed from Netflix in favor of this service in the coming future.
