Warner Bros. Discovery has announced that it will unveil further details about its combined streaming service in April, aiming to bring together all of its intellectual property under one roof. The new service will merge HBO Max and Discovery+ and is set to cut churn by providing “something for everyone in the household.”
It’s worth noting that HBO Max is the streaming home of two highly popular series, The Last Of Us and Euphoria, both of which have garnered critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base, and are heavily covered here on Trevor Decker News. The decision to merge the two streaming services was made to create a more viable business, as Warner Bros. Discovery seeks to stay competitive in the evolving streaming wars. While the combined streaming service has yet to be named, reports in December suggested it would be called “Max,” although there has been no confirmation from WBD.
As of now, the ad-free versions of HBO Max and Discovery+ are priced at $15.99 and $6.99 per month, respectively. While no official announcement has been made regarding the cost of the new combined streamer, WBD has hinted that it will be priced higher than HBO Max’s current cost.
The press day scheduled for April 12th is expected to reveal more information about the highly anticipated combined streaming service, and many are looking forward to seeing what Warner Bros. Discovery has in store for viewers. With the streaming wars showing no signs of slowing down, it will be interesting to see how the new service fares in a crowded market.
