HBO says it anticipates a global subscriber base of 90 million by 2025, including 50 million in the domestic USA market. While Disney and Apple opted to make their streaming services way cheaper than Netflix, HBO Max clearly went in the opposite direction. We also want to assure you that DC Universe is still going strong with an exciting year of super-fan service coming through this year and next. HBO Max will also offer a selection of third party acquired series and films titles that WarnerMedia believes will rival any other streaming offering in the marketplace.
HBO Max will launch with 10,000 hours of "curated premium content" including HBO content, movies from the iconic Warner Bros. library, and programming from New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, and Looney Tunes.
HBO Max will include features like Recommended by Humans where popular celebrities and influencers will provide their own recommendations to users.
Max has always been reported to feature its fair share of DC Comics-related content that will stand alongside the DC Universe streaming service. Those without existing HBO credentials will have to pay a subscription fee of $14.99.
HBO Max will cost $14.99 per month, and anyone who's now a HBO subscriber will get Max for no additional cost.
HBO Max will not start running the full seasons of WBTV's CW series until 30 days before the start of their following season, under the terms of the CW's distribution arrangement.
In addition to series, specials and docs, HBO Max will offer 1,800 film titles at launch.
The service will also include global content, including anime from Japanese animation from Studio Ghibli, according to Nikei Asian Review.
