This week the head of HBO Max, Casey Bloys, gave a talk at the Series Mania Forum, where he talked about the future of HBO Max, including the upcoming merge with Discovery+. During this talk, Mr. Bloys said this included plans to have HBO Max replicate the cable TV bundle to give you everything in one place.
“It is replicating that cable bundle, where you can get a wide array of programming – and frankly, that is what we are seeing all the streamers doing.” Series Mania said during his talk, according to Television Business International.
This all comes as Warner Bros. Discovery is planning to announce details of this new service in April. After Discovery merged with Warner Bros., it was announced that HBO Max and Discovery+ would merge in 2023. This service would be a one-stop location for all of your Warner Bros. Discovery content at the same price as HBO Max right now, according to recent reports.
According to Casey Bloys, Warner Bros. Discovery’s goal is to offer a product that “appeals to as many people as we can – it can’t just be HBO shows, or reality shows, or whatever. It needs to be a combination for whatever mood the viewer is in.”
Warner Bros. Discovery has set an April 12th press day to announce further details about the service. At that time, we should know all the details about the price and bundles offered.
