Warner Media has finally announced their upcoming streaming service, officially titled HBO Max, and it’s going to be massive.
The company revealed a teaser for the service that includes Film/TV properties like Friends, DC Universe’s Doom Patrol, Game Of Thrones, and the recently released Godzilla: King Of The Monsters. Borrowing its name from the premium cable network, HBO Max will attempt to bring everything under the Warner Media umbrella under one pricey roof. Check out the trailer below.
Global Powerhouse “Friends”; future Hits from The CW Network including “Batwoman”; Original Movies from Greg Berlanti and Reese Witherspoon; and Fan Favorites “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “Pretty Little Liars” will Stream on HBO Max.
HBO Max brings together HBO, a Robust Slate of New Originals, and Programming from Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes and More to offer Something for Everyone in the Home
The company is claiming that the service will include 10,000 hours of premium content at launch. Along with the extensive library from the networks mentioned, they are working on new original shows exclusive for HBO Max.
- “Dune: The Sisterhood,” an adaptation of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson’s book based in the world created by Frank Herbert’s book Dune, from director Denis Villeneuve
- “Tokyo Vice,” based on Jake Adelstein’s non-fiction first-hand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat starring Ansel Elgort
- “The Flight Attendant,” a one-hour thriller series based on the novel by Chris Bohjalian, which will star Kaley Cuoco, who is also executive producing alongside Greg Berlanti
- “Love Life,” a 10-episode half-hour romantic comedy anthology series starring “Pitch Perfect” star Anna Kendrick, who will also executive produce alongside Paul Feig
- “Station Eleven,” a postapocalyptic limited series based on Emily St. John Mandel’s international bestseller, adapted by Patrick Somerville and directed by Hiro Murai

Noticeably absent from the announcement is the price of the jam-packed streaming service. It was previously reported that the pricing may range from “between $16 and $17 a month,” which is a few dollars higher compared to Netflix and Disney Plus.
However, the amount of content included could sway plenty of consumers who are fans of HBO, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros./New Line films, CW, etc.
HBO Max is scheduled to launch in the spring of 2020.
