HBO Max will stop streaming 36 titles, including 20 originals.
Variety has learned that HBO Max would start removing approximately 36 titles from its subscription this week.
A representative for HBO Max claimed that the impending merger of the service with Discovery+, which is also owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, was the reason for the choice.
HBO Max released a statement saying, “We will be changing the content offering available on both HBO Max and discovery+ as we work toward integrating our content portfolios together under one platform.” “That will involve some content being deleted from both platforms.”
By removing the titles from streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery might save money on residuals and cut costs by eliminating less popular shows. The titles will be removed at an unspecified time and date, according to the announcement.
Although HBO Max has taken down a number of titles recently, including several Warner Bros. movies and HBO TV episodes like “Camping,” “Vinyl,” “Mrs. Fletcher,” and “Run,” the most recent news marks the service’s biggest-ever removal of titles. Additionally, 20 original HBO Max programs will be removed off the platform, including the teen drama “Generation,” the animated anthology program “Infinity Train,” and the reality dating program “12 Dates of Christmas,” which focuses on the holiday season. Whether they will be made accessible on DVD or through rental services is still unknown.
The full list of movies that will be removed, except an undefined “select set of ‘Sesame Street’ specials,” is provided below.
