HBO Max Sets Launch: WarnerMedia Streaming Service to Arrive May 27

Looking to add another streaming service to your quarantine rotation? You’re in luck: HBO Max is arriving imminently.

WarnerMedia announced Tuesday that its forthcoming streamer will launch on Wednesday, May 27.

As reported in October, HBO Max will cost $14.99 per month, though current HBO subscribers via AT&T and DirecTV (along with HBO Now subscribers) will have immediate access to the service at no additional cost. It’s not yet clear if an annual subscription rate will be available, but an ad-supported version of HBO Max (price TBD) is expected to launch in 2021.

HBO Max has more than two dozen original series in the works, including a Gossip Girl reboot from the show’s original creators, a series of Adventure Time specials, new episodes of the quirky dark comedy Search Party and an adaptation of The Flight Attendant starring The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco (view the full list here).

The streamer will also (eventually) drop an unscripted Friends reunion special, though it won’t be ready in time for the launch date after coronavirus concerns suspended production in March.

In addition to its originals, the service will feature a robust selection of library content, housing all episodes of Friends, The Big Bang Theory, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Pretty Little Liars, as well as all of HBO’s programming. HBO Max will also serve as the streaming home for all new CW dramas produced by Warner Bros., beginning with Batwoman and Katy Keene, which will drop on the streamer after they have concluded their freshman seasons.
