We will have to wait a little longer for HBO Max to arrive in Spain. According to The Hollywood Reporter, WarnerMedia has announced that it is delaying the expansion of the streaming platform to Europe to next year.
It was expected for the second half of 2021, but HBO Max delays its arrival in Europe in early 2022. The official reason is that WarnerMedia wants to focus on gaining subscribers in Latin America, the territory where the service just landed on June 30.. “We are seeing a good push, especially in Latin America,” said Pascal Desroches, the financial vice president of the AT&T company, to which WarnerMedia belongs.
WarnerMedia President Jason Kilar explained that the company intends to learn from the experience in Latin America to have a perfect landing on our continent. “The team did an impressive job planning this launch and making sure we came up with the best main productions and also an incredible catalog,” explained Kilar, referring to the agreements HBO Max has reached with other distributors to have a good bookstore. of contents.
At the moment, we have HBO Spain
There are still not many data about the arrival of HBO Max to our country, We only know that it will arrive to replace the current HBO Spain, which has part of the original content of the US service. ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ and the meeting of ‘Friends’ are the two great HBO Max titles that HBO Spain has also released.
The biggest difference is that Warner Bros. is not releasing its films simultaneously in cinemas and streaming in our country, unlike its strategy in the US. Titles such as ‘Expediente Warren: Obligado por el demonio’ or the recently released ‘Space Jam: New Legends’ have been seen immediately on HBO Max, while in Spain, to the delight of the exhibitors, they are exclusively in theaters.
