WarnerMedia first announced the project last year and now, seven months later, HBO Max is ready to go live. The service will be ready to purchase from tomorrow, Wednesday, May 27, and will cost $14.99 (£12) per month. Here’s everything you need to know about HBO Max.
What is HBO Max?
Like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Now TV, HBO is a streaming service.
The platform is an American subscription video on demand service which was created by WarnerMedia Entertainment.
With there now being so many streaming services to choose from, HBO Max has got some tough competition, especially as it is more expensive than all of the other platforms mentioned above.
But there is plenty of classic television series which could convince people to subscribe.

There will be an abundance of fan-favourites on new streaming service HBO Max.
From Friends and The Big Bang Theory, to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Game of Thrones and Sex and the City, these are just a small handful of what’s to be dropped.
Other series include The Sopranos, Sesame Street, Looney Tunes, Band of Brothers and Smallville.
The first three seasons of Rick and Morty will be made available on HBO Max with series four being released in about five months’ time.
There is also going to be a collection of new shows and spin-off series to watch on the service.

If all of this wasn’t exciting enough, a Friends cast reunion is also going to be shown on HBO Max.
This was meant to be filmed prior to the worldwide lockdown so will instead be filmed and shown later this year on the streaming service.
