Max is an American subscription video on demand streaming service owned by AT&T through the WarnerMedia Direct subsidiary of WarnerMedia, and was first launched on May 27, 2020 as HBO Max. Since the April 2022 merger of WarnerMedia with Discovery, Inc. to form Warner Bros. Discovery, the service is one of the combined company's two flagship streaming services aunched first in the U.S. on May 23, 2023, simplifying the service name into Max and adding more Discovery content among other new series and films. It principally serves as a content hub for WarnerMedia's various film and television properties, offering a range of original programming and library content from the company as well as additional content licensed through third-party distributors.
WarnerMedia indicated that the service would have 10,000 hours of content at-launch, including first-run and library content from the namesake HBO (including its original series, documentaries, and specials), and content from the company's other brands and networks.
WarnerMedia stated that the service would have over 2,000 films available at-launch, including HBO's existing pay television rights that are sourced from studios including sister company Warner Bros. Pictures, Universal Pictures, and 20th Century Studios (the latter two have respective output deals with HBO until 2022; films from 20th Century will move to Disney+ and Hulu once its output deal expire, while future rights to Universal films are still up for negotiation.
As with HBO's previous streaming platforms, HBO Go and HBO Now (but as opposed to its platforms on Apple TV Channels and Amazon Video Channels), max is not expected to include feeds of HBO's linear cable channels, nor is it expected to include any content (including original programming) from Cinemax, which will concurrently wind down its original programming efforts as WarnerMedia reallocates its programming investments towards HBO Max and, eventually, max. Most paying HBO subscribers were automatically upgraded or switched from their HBO Max accounts to max when the platform was released. That’s because HBO Max was phased out while HBO Now was rebranded to just HBO. Your account credentials for HBO Max should still work for max, but you’ll need to download a new app.
Original content produced will be under the banner Max Originals, including series, films, and specials. The service also features many hubs for animated programming, drawing largely from the libraries of Warner Bros. Animation (including the Looney Tunes franchise and Hanna-Barbera productions) and Cartoon Network, along with Adult Swim. Outside of WarnerMedia, the service also offers titles from The Criterion Collection, BBC Studios, Comedy Central, New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, a curated selection of classic films in partnership with TCM, and more.
Max is free for AT&T customers who are already subscribed to HBO. AT&T customers with some newer unlimited plans also have free access to max, which is available on most Apple devices, including Apple TV, Android TV devices, Chromebooks, Google Chromecast and Chromecast, Xbox Series X, and even YouTube TV. After launching HBO Max without compatibility with Amazon Fire TV Stick, it was finally made available on the Fire TV Stick in November 2020, and in December it added support for Roku and PlayStation 5, giving max a very broad reach in terms of devices.
The original US version of max is geo-blocked and it cannot be streamed outside the US. Therefore, if you want to watch max from other parts of the world (whether on holiday or business), you need to use Smart DNS to stream its original US content. Otherwise, your IP will get detected as not coming from the US territory and you won’t be able to access any of the max great shows. What you need to do is to redirect part of the traffic which is responsible for your location through a special server located in the USA. This is exactly what Getflix Smart DNS does.
