All the shows you love in one place
HBO Max and Warner Bros. Discovery are bringing all the top shows from both networks into one place. No other streaming service has the variety of content that WBAD provides,
so you will never have to waste time looking for something to watch. This new network gives the consumers what they want: prestige television, so now everyone has a TV subscription.
How about some exclusives?
Many of these programming decisions have been due to an increase in deals for exclusive content. This can be seen through their purchase of HBO Max, with Warner Bros. the only studio investing.
Recently, it released a teaser announcing the name of its upcoming streaming service: Discovery. With this, they’re confident that they’ll compete and even surpass the other major players like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

How does it impact me as a viewer?
If you’re a devoted Warner Bros. fan and don’t have HBO Max, you might be wondering what this means for your favorite shows. This question is one of the many that has yet to be answered.
However, if you have access to HBO Max and don’t already watch WB programming on HBO, it could mean that there will be more DC Comics original content, comedy specials with stand-up comedy stars like Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle,
and other unheard-of programming material available exclusively on HBO Max. And who knows? There might even be some news about the future of Warner Bros.’ television block–or so we hope!
Will I have to pay more?
A little good news for movie lovers out there, you might not have to pay more. Warner Bros. Discovery is on fire because HBO Max and Warner Bros. announced a new partnership today.
The two companies are now teaming up for four years to collaborate on an array of projects in the video-on-demand market as well as help establish new SVOD services in international markets.
This move will effectively eliminate some major competitors, like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and more that have been offering fewer titles over the past year.
Warner Bros., who helped pioneer the industry over 100 years ago with their Vitaphone sound system and first talkie The Jazz Singer hopes this partnership with HBO Max will continue their legacy in film storytelling.
