HBO Max launches next week with hundreds of movies and TV shows

BGR — Andy Meek
  • The HBO Max lineup for June has just been released, and it includes “hundreds” of movies and TV series, according to the company, for what will be the streamer’s first full month of operation.
  • HBO Max officially launches on Wednesday, May 27, with everything HBO has ever released plus a library of third-party shows and movies — as well as HBO Max originals.
  • The new service will cost $14.99 per month. HBO Now and Charter video subscribers will get HBO Max for free, and so will millions of AT&T customers.

A new heavy-hitter joins the streaming video landscape next week, with the launch of HBO Max coming as a culmination of plans by HBO’s parent WarnerMedia to transform the premium cable network into more of a mainstream, Netflix-like player as opposed to the boutique identity HBO has cultivated since its inception.

HBO Max will cost $14.99 per month when it launches on May 27, which puts it on the expensive side relative to other streaming services like Netflix and Disney+, but it will come storming out of the gate right away, nonetheless. At launch, for example, the HBO Max lineup will include more than 10,000 hours of content, including every original series, movie, and documentary HBO has ever released — plus a wide variety of licensed content from Warner Bros. Down the line, the long-awaited, much-hyped director’s cut of Justice League that has long been the subject of a viral #ReleaseTheSnyderCut rallying cry online will debut on HBO Max in 2021.

For now, though, the packed HBO Max lineup for June includes New Max Originals series like Adventure Time: Distant Lands, and HBO Max theatrical highlights including Academy Award®-winner Titanic, Veronica Mars, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as well as The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. 

New HBO original series will that will also be available on HBO Max in June include Perry Mason, starring Emmy®winner Matthew Rhys; I May Destroy You, from executive producer and star Michaela Coel; and the docu-series I’ll Be Gone in the Dark premiere alongside comedy special Yvonne Orji: Momma, I Made It!
