HBO Max continues its world domination and is now available in fifteen further European countries.
HBO Max is launching in a further 15 European countries, as part of parent company WarnerMedia’s global rollout for the streaming service that first launched in the US back in May 2020.
Where and When Is HBO Max Launching?
On March 8, 2022, HBO Max will launch in the following European countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
HBO Max is currently available in 46 countries, with that total rising to 61 come March 2022.
This follows HBO Max’s European debut in October 2021, when the service launched in countries like Spain and Denmark with an aggressive half-price offer—there’s currently no word whether the same deal will be offered for these new countries.
What’s the Future for HBO Max?
HBO Max will launch in a further six European countries later this year, including Greece and Turkey.
Eventually, WarnerMedia hopes to expand HBO Max as globally as possible. For now, existing agreements with local providers is one major blocker.
WarnerMedia is owned by US telecom giant AT&T and, as we reported in May 2021, AT&T will separate WarnerMedia into a standalone company and merge it with Discovery. As such, when this process completes, it’s likely that HBO Max and Discovery+ will then combine into a single streaming service.
Should You Subscribe to HBO Max?
If you’re in one of the 15 countries that HBO Max is launching in on March 8, 2022, you might wonder whether the streaming service is worth your hard-earned cash.
HBO Max brings together Warner Bros., HBO, DC, and Cartoon Network properties, and offers Warner Bros. movies 45 days after they release in the theater.
You also get access to a range of HBO Max original content, including Peacemaker, Raised by Wolves, and Station Eleven. There’s also upcoming European-focused content like Todo Lo Otro, Lust, and The Thaw.
