The merger with Discovery has put the nails in the coffin of HBO Max and we already have an official date to say goodbye completely to this streaming platform that has had a fairly short life.
Streaming content platforms are born and die with dizzying speed and, in fact, in recent years we have seen an enormous number of these platforms. Also, no one is safe from this sudden death. Now it has been the turn of HBO Max, which, until recently, was only HBO.
Yes, the streaming platform on which House of the Dragon is going to premiere along with other successful series and movies will cease to exist in the fairly near future. Just a few weeks ago we echoed the merger plans of Discovery + with HBO Max, now these plans have already been established and the roadmap is set.
The path the platform will take is quite predictable and, in truth, there are not many surprises in terms of the official disappearance by HBO Max. No, it is not that the service ceases to exist. What is planned is to launch a new streaming content platform that, surely, does not bear the same name.
Now what would be done is to create a new service that would come to replace the current HBO Max and that, logically, will have a new name. It may seem like too much change at a general level, but at a general level and with a merger in the middle, the truth is that it is much more reasonable to adapt a new brand identity.
In principle, heThe merger between both platforms is quite interesting and should be of enormous benefit to users. More series and movies will be integrated into the platform, thus improving the content offer and being able to compete in growth with giants that have taken off into the atmosphere such as Disney +.
What happens is that, despite everything positive that this merger can bring, doubts are on the surface. What will happen to subscriptions to HBO Max? Will prices change? Maybe HBO Max or, well, whatever name the new platform has, decides to adopt a similar strategy to Netflix in terms of prices.
At the moment the only thing we know officially is that there is already a date for the merger to become official and a new platform to be born, being the period set for the summer of 2023 so it would take almost a year to discover the new namedesign and price scheme of this new platform.
Of course, if you have a subscription to HBO Max and you live in Europe, the truth is that you can rest easy. The arrival of the new platform would be staggered, with the United States being the first to receive the platform in the aforementioned year and the rest of the locations would have to wait until 2024.
