Recently, WarnerMedia revealed the name for its upcoming streaming service, HBO Max
. While no pricing details were announced, HBO Max will attempt to compete with the likes of Netflix
, Amazon Prime Video
, and the new Disney+ platform
. HBO Max is set have a release date
sometime in Spring 2020.WarnerMedia’s decision to use its already established HBO branding could help attract new subscribers who are familiar with the premium network’s prestigious history, which includes The Wire
, The Sopranos
, Game of Thrones
, and Band of Brothers

to maintain the rights for just one more year. Apart from the iconic sitcom, viewers will also be able to stream shows from Warner’s impressive collection of networks: The CW, Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, TNT, and of course, HBO.
HBO Max will also be developing new original series of its own, which we have listed in the gallery below. Which new shows are you most excited to see? Let us know in the comments.
