There’s a new way to watch HBO Max titles on your phone. Starting July 20, HBO Max is rolling out select episodes of some of its most popular shows on Snapchat via the social media app’s new co-viewing feature, Snap Minis. Now, snapchatters will be able to stream select HBO Max programming – like the first episode of the new Gossip Girl – on Snapchat for free alongside their friends.
Snap Minis is a new feature on Snapchat that allows you to watch videos with your friends from your individual phones and even react in real-time with bitmojis. HBO Max is the first major streaming service to partner with Snapchat and launch free episodes via the new feature.
HBO Max will continue to refresh available episodes on an ongoing basis, but right now, pilot episodes of the following shows will be available on the HBO Mini:
- The Flight Attendant
- Game of Thrones
- Gossip Girl (2021)
- Looney Tunes
- Love Life
- Lovecraft Country
- Selena + Chef
- World of Calm
- Betty – (Season 2, Episode 1)
“People love to come together to watch their favorite HBO Max shows and talk about what’s unfolding. Our partnership with Snapchat is another step towards fulfilling that desire for human connection and providing our fans with co-viewing opportunities, while deepening their emotional relationship with the brand,” said Sarah Lyons, EVP, DTC Global Product Management, HBO Max. “We believe humans value recommendations that come from other humans, so having the opportunity for friends to suggest, and then subsequently watch content together paves the way for more meaningful discovery.”
