HBO Max kommer til Europa

30 Oct 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

WarnerMedia, ejet af AT&T, lancerer HBO Max i USA i maj 2020 for 15 dollars om måneden. Derefter går turen til Europa og Latinamerika, bekræfter selskabet.

HBO Max i Europa

Ved et stort anlagt arrangement i går aftes dansk tid løftede man sløret for HBO Max. Det er en ny streamingtjeneste, som skal tage kampen op med bl.a. Amazon, Netflix og Disney+, når den lanceres i USA i maj 2020. Den nærmere dato for europæisk lancering kendes endnu ikke. Følgende blev bekræftet: - "AT&T har hensigt at udvide HBO Max ud over USA. Indledningsvis prioriteres Latinamerika og Europa, hvor virksomheden på nuværende tidspunkt har ejerandel i eller driver premium HBO-netværk samt har streamingtjenester," skriver WarnerMedia, som håber at have 75-90 mio. abonnenter på tværs af USA, Latinamerika og Europa i 2025. I Norden har vi som bekendt HBO Nordic.


- "With this entire company coming together, we will have one of the most robust collections of premium streaming content that will appeal to all demographics in the household, and be able to achieve incredible scale and reach right out of the gate," sagde Robert Greenblatt, formand for WarnerMedia Entertainment. "We couldn’t achieve this without AT&T’s unprecedented and enthusiastic support. When you live in a world with ‘dragons’ — it feels very good to have one of your own in the game!"

Omfattende katalog

Prisen på 15 dollars per måned er den samme, som HBO i dag tager for HBO Now, der svarer til HBO Nordic. Rygtet gik ellers, at selskabet havde overvejet en højere pris, idet indholdskataloget vil være langt mere omfattende og også dække bl.a. Warner Bros., New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth og Looney Tunes. Det amerikanske indholdskatalog vil sandsynlighed variere fra det europæiske - i hvert fald til at starte med. I USA går man i luften med gamle tv-serier som Friends, The Big Bang Theory og South Park, film som The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Gremlins og Lego-titlerne samt nyproduktioner (se tabellen nederst). De nærmere detaljer om billed/lydkvalitet samt understøttede enheder kendes ikke på nuværende tidspunkt. Herunder ses et par glimt af brugerfladen.





WarnerMedia mener, at HBO Max er mere komplet end konkurrerende tjenester, hvilket afspejles i prisen og navnet (Max). Foruden et omfattende arkiv vil tjenesten blive udvidet med live-indhold og interaktive produktioner senere hen. Tjenesten lanceres i USA nogenlunde samtidig med NBCUniversals Peacock-tjeneste og cirka et halvt år efter Apple TV+ og Disney+. Kan HBO Max hive de forventende 75-90 millioner abonnenter i butikken inden 2026? Det må tiden vise, men AT&T investerer i hvert fald massivt i HBO Max, som lanceres i en tid, hvor selskabets traditionelle tv-pakker bløder kunder i et tempo på over 1,3 mio. husstande per kvartal.
