In the new world of digital streaming, WarnerMedia will release its new streaming service, HBO Max, on May 27.

After an earlier announcement about the subscription service, some of the content is postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

HBO Max leans on the expensive side, at $14.99/month.

With an increasing collection of streaming services, how will HBO Max compete? The company hopes that its selection of hit shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Friends” will attract customers. Blockbuster hits such as “Wonder Woman” and “The Matrix” are other strong additions to the HBO family.

HBO Max will also include new original programming called Max Originals. Fans can look forward to a “Gossip Girl” reboot from the original creators of the series. They can also await a sequel to the hit show “Adventure Time” titled “Adventure Time Distant Lands.” The service will include programming for kids and teens such as “Sesame Street,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” and “Euphoria.”

AT&T projects that HBO Max will have 80 million subscribers by 2025. But other companies have streaming services. Apple TV+ has recently launched Quibi, a platform for content that is ten minutes or less. NBCUniversal plans on debuting Peacock in July.
