What content will be available on HBO Max that is not on other streaming services? The late-summer news is that HBO Max will be the exclusive streaming service for all 11 seasons of “Doctor Who” and all 10 seasons of “Friends,” which leaves Netflix early next year. “The service will also be the exclusive streaming source for all new Warner Bros. dramas produced for The CW network, beginning with the fall 2019 season that features the premieres of ‘Batwoman’ and another ‘Riverdale’ spinoff, ‘Katy Keene,’” cited digitaltrends.com. HBO Max will also produce new content.
3. How much content will be available on HBO Max when it launches? At least 10,000 hours.
4. What is the cost? Instead of AT&T’s previously announced three-tiered streaming model that split content between movies, television shows and original productions, all will be bundled into an expected $16- to $17-a-month service.
5. Will HBO Max support 4K or high-dynamic range (HDR) resolution? Currently, there is no definitive word from AT&T WarnerMedia on this topic. However, digitaltrends.com pointed out that because other streaming services support the current viewing technology, HBO Max will have to as well in order to stay competitive.
Businessinsider.com in July discerned the difference in the current HBO streaming options, Now and Go, from next year’s Max: “With HBO Go and HBO Now, the library of content is largely focused on HBO’s originally produced TV shows and movies. But with HBO Max, you’ll get all that content plus a ton of new stuff from a variety of WarnerMedia brands.”
