Introducing HBO Max, WarnerMedia's Streaming Domination Scheme

HBO MAX 'Will Not Change' Competing DC UNIVERSE Streaming Service Says Warner Bros.

It'll also be the exclusive streaming home to "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and "Pretty Little Liars".

HBO Max will also be developing new original series of its own, which we have listed in the gallery below. As it made its branding announcement WarnerMedia revealed that it would be terminating Netflix's franchise for classic comedy Friends in 2020 so that HBO Max has exclusive streaming rights at launch to all 236 episodes of one of the biggest hits on television. Neither of the companies other streaming services are available in the United Kingdom, and instead it has lucrative deals with Sky to make HBO content available on Sky Atlantic and Now TV - those deals mean that it's very unlikely we'll see HBO Max here.

WarnerMedia has chosen the name HBO Max for its upcoming streaming service. The Hulu streaming service, now owned by Disney, will, however, launch internationally, although no time-frame has yet been given for its roll-out in worldwide markets like South Africa.

HBO has announced that it will soon have a third streaming service - to sit alongside HBO Now and HBO Go - called HBO Max, which it no doubt hopes will rival the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.

The most-viewed Netflix show was workplace comedy "The Office", which will switch from Netflix to a planned digital offering from Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal in 2021.

Tokyo Vice, based on Jake Adelstein's non-fiction first-hand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat starring Ansel Elgort.

Max also has a deal in place for exclusive movie production with Greg Berlanti and Reese Witherspoon.
