The may 27th of 2020 HBO Max debuted in the US, and although it would take a long time to expand outside of this country, we have never stopped talking about the platform in all this time. The reason? That WarnerMedia converted this service from streaming in part the core of its launch strategy for 2021, taking forward a controversial hybrid model according to which all its films would be released simultaneously on HBO Max and in theaters that could afford it in the midst of a pandemic. As this platform is not available in Spain, these films have had a conventional premiere here, while original content such as Friends: The Reunion O Zack Snyder’s Justice League have gone to HBO Spain.
All according to the forecast that HBO Max would arrive in our country throughout this year, although there is still no confirmed date. Along these lines, media such as The Hollywood Reporter echo now that the service streaming Warner Media has delayed its arrival in certain European countries until 2022, although it is assumed that this measure does not apply to Spain: officially, it would arrive in our country after the summer, replacing HBO Spain. As for its delay in other territories, it seems that this is due to the fact that those responsible for the platform prefer to focus their efforts on the landing of HBO Max within Latin America, where the past arrived.

“There is a great reception, especially in Latin America”, he assured Pascal Desroches, financial vice president of AT&T (owner of WarnerMedia) during a recent speech. According to this executive, subscriptions are experiencing a large increase, and it is expected that they will rise much more thanks to the next launches. Before, Godzilla vs. Kong O The Warren File: Forced By The Demon managed to overcome the hybrid premiere with good numbers harvested in theaters, and it remains to be seen what happens with Space Jam: New Legends (which opens today in Spain), The Suicide Squad (august 6) O Dune (September, 17th).
