Spanish users will be, along with those from the Nordic countries, the first in Europe to have access to the new WarnerMedia platform. In 2022 it will be followed by Portugal and the territories of central and eastern Europe.
After it was announced that the European landing of HBO Max would be in the fall, now the official date has been revealed: HBO Max launches in Europe on October 26.
Spain, Andorra, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden will be the first six European countries where the new streaming service will be available.
They will join the US, where HBO Max celebrated its first anniversary last May, and the 39 Latin American and Caribbean territories where it was launched in June as the first expansion outside the US.
In 2022, HBO Max will add 14 additional territories as part of its global phased launch: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. And launches in other territories are already being planned for next year as well.
HBO Max will offer a range of entertainment of the highest quality from WarnerMedia’s most beloved brands: Warner Bros., HBO, DC and Cartoon Network, as well as the award-winning US and international Max Originals, all in one place for the first time. .
“The arrival of HBO Max in Europe is a historic moment,” said Johannes Larcher, Head of HBO Max International. “WarnerMedia films and series such as Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and The Big Bang Theory are beloved by fans across Europe, and HBO Max has been created to give them the most intuitive and appropriate viewing experience to watch these and a wide range of other incredible titles.”
“The unique and exclusive combination of iconic content from Warner Bros., HBO, DC, Cartoon Network and Max Originals, including local original productions, makes it possible to build a streaming platform that will delight fans in Europe,” added Christina Sulebakk, General Manager, HBO Max EMEA. “We see tremendous growth potential as we roll out this new, content-packed streaming platform across the region.”
