HBO Max to Roll Out in May 2020, featuring Titles ‘Curated by Humans’
HBO Max will include an “entire HBO service and library,” along with “choice slate” of acquired and library programming.
The service will release new shows every week, with the company planning to debut fifty new originals by the end of its first year.
Initially, HBO Max will be available for free to existing AT&T HBO subscribers, with an ad-supported version coming in 2021.
It will cost $14.99 per month and will also release a new Game of Thrones spin-off dubbed House of the Dragon.
What HBO really helps to set it apart from its competitors is its reliance on human title curation. While the company will use algorithms, it wont’ solely rely on them and put the onus on people to choose content for subscribers.
