HBO Max is an upcoming streaming service from the TV studio in question, but also offers content from partners that range from DC to New Line. It will replace the existing Go product in many Latin and South America in June 2021, migrating its existing users to the new platform as it does. A similar transition is planned for European customers, although this lacks a concrete roll-out schedule at present.

HBO Max is an upcoming streaming solution from the Warner Media conglomerate, which means it stands ready to offer shows such as the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel House of Dragons as well as those from DC, adult swim, Cartoon Network and Looney Tunes Cartoons to name a few. It will be first seen in the Latin and South American regions, as well as in many Caribbean countries, by the end of June 2021.

Existing subscibers to the current HBO Go streaming platform in these markets will have their service shifted to HBO Max in this time-frame. This will also apparently be realized for HBO Go customers in European countries for which it operates, which include Romania, Spain, Portugal and Scandinavia; however, the exact date of this change remains unknown.

HBO Go is also available in Canada, although there is currently no word on when or if this transition to the new Max product will take effect there. On this note, it is a shame that neither Go nor Max is available as a stand-alone streaming option in more markets by default. Currently, the only way to access HBO content for some is via old-fashioned cable or satellite services, which are also often expensive and wasteful to boot.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
