The HBO Max streaming service competing with Netflix and Disney + will finally look outside of North America this year. The expansion will be very fast. WarnerMedia confirmed yesterdaythat it will launch it in 39 regions of Latin America in June, and will also head to Europe later this year.
The company has stated in the past that priority will be given to countries where some HBO online services (Go or Now) are already running, so we can count with certainty that Max will also appear in the Czech Republic and Slovakia this year.
At the moment, we do not know how the new service will be in terms of content, or how much it will cost. Technologically, however, it will be a significant upgrade, because HBO Go is obsolete. Max will be able to stream in 4K, with HDR, Dolby Atmos sound, supports up to three concurrent streams and user profiles. Go supports up to 1080p, Dolby Digital 5.1, two streams and profiles missing.
In terms of content, Max benefits from WarnerMedia’s vast catalog of film and television studios. Under his wings he has Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, DC Comics, HBO, Cinemax, CNN, Cartoon Network, TBS, TNT, Adult Swim and more. However, not all content may be automatically available in all countries.
