HBO Max will arrive in Europe in the second half of 2021 and will double its catalog with the new application

Last May, HBO launched in the US. HBO Max, a new streaming service that added the rest of the Warner Media catalog to its own content, as well as exclusive material for streaming. The doubt was then how would it affect that about the HBO Spain catalog.

And today, during WebSummit 2020, the company clarified: HBO Spain, like the rest of its counterparts in Europe and Latin America, will "upgrade" to HBO Max from the second half of 2021, offering "double the content" and more functionalities.

Even though the distribution rights situation varies greatly from one country to another, we can take as a reference the fact that the new service brings together content from labels such as New Line, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth and Looney Tunes.

To this must be added HBO's declared intention to achieve bring together on HBO Max, internationally, all the content of the DC multiverse (Justice League, Green Arrow and all series and movies related to them).

Paying for streaming is not the same as not having ads: HBO Max plans to add them, although Netflix once again insists that it is not their model

For all against Netflix and company

With this announcement, made by Andy Forssell, head of HBO Max Global, AT&T (the company that owns HBO) confirms its commitment to confront globally with industry leaders: Netxflix, Prime Video and Disney +.

In addition, this announcement has been accompanied by another of great relevance: Warner Bros will begin releasing films simultaneously in theaters and on its streaming platform.

Thus, as far as we know, we can see online, for 31 days after its premiere, movies highly anticipated by users like Dune, Suicide Squad or Matrix 4.

At the moment, yes, it is unknown if this transition to HBO Max will have repercussions on the price of the service in Spain: Your monthly subscription currently costs € 8.99 in our country.
