HBO Max Set For Latin America, Caribbean Launch in June

WarnerMedia’s HBO Max streamer launches in 39 Latin American and Caribbean territories in June.

After this launch, the existing HBO branded streaming services in Europe – Nordics, Spain, Central Europe and Portugal – will be updated to HBO Max later this year.

The service will be available through a new HBO Max app. At the start, existing customers with direct billing from HBO GO as well as customers who are billed through authorized partners will have immediate access to HBO Max. The existing HBO GO service in Latin America and the Caribbean will be phased out. Subscribers are promised an experience that mirrors that available in the United States

In addition to WarnerMedia brands such as HBO, Warner Bros., New Line, DC, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV and Adult, HBO Max will feature local original productions by talent from their own country under the Max Originals brand and a catalog for children to swim.

“We’re excited to launch HBO Max in Latin America and the Caribbean. This is the first step in bringing WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer service to consumers outside of the US and around the world,” said Johannes Larcher, director by HBO Max International. “By combining HBO with the best of WarnerMedia’s series and film catalogs, as well as locally produced content from master storytellers in Latin America, HBO Max offers fans in the region an unforgettable and enriching entertainment experience.”

HBO Max will be available through a variety of subscription options and will be downloadable on a variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, and a wide range of intelligent entertainment platforms.

The rollout areas in June include: Anguilla, Antigua, Argentina, Aruba, British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, CuraƧao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Montserrat, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks and Caicos Islands, Uruguay and Venezuela.
