As HBO Max is now being rolled out internationally, I think it's time for a separate thread specifically dedicated to news about international versions of HBO Max. So far outside the United States, HBO Max has launched in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a Spanish and Nordic launch on the horizon. As we're in a transitional period of HBO GO to HBO Max, discussion about any international version of the HBO streaming service is allowed on this thread. You can also talk about HBO/HBO Max content on third-party streaming services and TV channels (e.g. NOW, Sky Atlantic, OCS, Crave etc.) if HBO does not directly operate a service in your country (yet).

I can start this thread off with a bit of news, an Indian launch of HBO Max is just around the corner: Exclusive: HBO Max plan details leaked ahead of Indian launch - OnlyTech

The promo is in CinemaScope (21:9), and it’s different from the Latin American and the original US App promos, because of the lightning bubbles inside the promo. I thought it’ll be the same in graphics.

Honestly, I'm not really keen about doing a separate thread for the non-US versions of HBO Max. I just felt the general thread was fine to include news relating to said versions but that's just me.

As usual, they don't mention Italy..
When the cross-European deal with Sky ends, I think it will launch. Sky currently has a deal with Discovery+, and WarnerMedia is merging with Discovery, which makes me think that Sky will at least get an ad-supported version of HBO Max (probably replacing Discovery+) bundled with the movie channels. It seems that Discovery or WarnerMedia (and ViacomCBS) don't want to annoy Sky and want to keep their channels.

Warner Media has opened their Asian regional hub in Singapore, which will serves as a stepping stone on launching HBO Max in the continent.

Today was HBO Max's first live event for Europe ready for the SVOD's launch in the Nordics and Spain on 26th October:



Also here's the press release and summary: HBO Max Unveils Its Streaming Platform Ahead of Launch in Europe

HBO Max today announced it will launch in 27 territories during the initial phase of its European rollout, going live in seven new countries in 2022 including the Netherlands, Turkey, Greece, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in addition to the 20 territories already confirmed.

HBO Max brings together the world-renowned brands of Warner Bros., HBO, DC, Cartoon Network and Max Originals in one place for the first time in Europe.

Warner Bros. movies will be available on HBO Max just 45 days after theatrical release this year in the Nordics and next year in Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Greece, Iceland and Central and Eastern Europe.

HBO Max will offer customers outstanding value with the monthly subscription reduced in the Nordics, maintained in Spain and a new annual subscription will offer 12-months for the price of eight.

With all the negative PR, especially that lawsuit, lately, are the board of directors and shareholders of WBD upset with David Zaslav?

It's official. E3 plans to return next June.

Don't expect any cancellations to occur anytime soon. The event is officially back on.
To all "The Ghost and Molly McGee" fans, don't go to 4chan because someone leaked some stuff about season two premiere.

Also don't spread the said leaks around Twitter and other places for the respect of the creators and the crew.

Can someone tweet to him that Paradise Run is off the TeenNick lineup? The last airing so far was last night, and that was a last minute schedule change.
