HBO Max is heading to Europe. In June, the streaming service finally became available outside the U.S. when it expanded to 39 territories across Latin America and the Caribbean. Now the platform owned by WarnerMedia debuts in Europe on October 26, starting with six countries in particular: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Spain and Andorra.
As part of the gradual introduction of the service, 14 other European regions will join it next year, namely Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. . WarnerMedia also plans to launch new territories for 2022, although it is not written whether it makes the streaming service available on multiple continents.
Johannes Larcher, head of HBO Max International, said in a statement:
“This is a historic moment as HBO Max lands in Europe. WarnerMedia movies and series like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and The Big Bang Theory are passionately eaten by fans across Europe, and HBO Max was created to give them the most intuitive and practical viewing experience to watch these and a variety of other amazing titles. “
HBO Max usually offers two types of plans: standard and mobile. In the U.S., there is also a supported ad level that costs $ 10 per month instead of $ 15. As always, subscription prices in Europe will vary from region to region, although they are likely to be around the same. WarnerMedia will reveal more details, including service prices and content offerings in Europe, at a virtual event in October.
