HBO was among the first to see the tremendous potential that on-demand content services had, but it was Netflix that popularized the model and defined it for the present day. Nowadays VOD platforms are growing everywhere, and in this ‘war’ even Disney has gotten involved with its almighty Disney+, a service entirely dedicated to the gigantic catalog of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and FOX, but even smartphone companies like Huawei have decided to launch their own platform. The competition is fierce, and WarnerMedia, owner of HBO, he knows.

HBO Max, the new VOD platform

After buying Time Warner in 2017, AT&T made it clear that it would promote HBO’s own content through WarnerMedia to be able to face Netflix, which far surpassed it in terms of original content. Although HBO can boast of titans like Game of Thrones, Westworld, Chernobyl or Watchmen, the arrival of Apple TV + and the advent of Disney + and its bombardment of content -Marvel, Disney, FOX, Star Wars- will change the current VOD landscape.

For this reason, it launched HBO Max in May 2020, a kind of enhanced version of its classic HBO and a platform that, like Disney, knows the importance of an attractive catalog. A catalog that in 2021 has included long-awaited things such as Zack Snyder’s montage of his Justice League, King Kong vs Godzilla, or Mortal Kombat. And finally, after a year and a half of waiting, HBO Max will be a reality in Europe and Spain.

When does HBO Max premiere in Spain?

HBO Max has revealed at its launch event today that its service will be available in 27 territories during the initial phase of de its European deployment, arriving first on October 26, 2021 at:

  • Sweden
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Finland
  • Spain
  • Andorra

And later in Central and Eastern Europe and Portugal in 2022. Then it will reach seven other countries next year including Netherlands, Turkey, Greece, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

As part of the launch event, it was shown the first preview of The House of the Dragon, the second spin-off taken from the Game of Thrones universe and which focuses on the history of House Targaryen 300 years before Daenerys’ journey, along with a first look at exclusive clips from the third season of Succession and The Peacemaker, And in a special message, Sarah Jessica Parker also announced December as the release month for And Just Like That…

HBO Max has a family-friendly catalog that includes WarnerMedia brands, housed in five hubs:

  • Warner Bros
  • HBO
  • Max Originals
  • DC
  • Cartoon Network

No, we will not have simultaneous film and TV premieres

Seeking to minimize the time window, fans and customers will be able to enjoy Warner Bros. movies on HBO Max just 45 days later from theatrical release, starting this year in the Nordic countries, and starting next year in Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Greece, Iceland and Central and Eastern Europe. This is the same measure that Disney has taken for its Disney +, but it confirms one thing in these parts: We will not see simultaneous releases in theaters and HBO Max as the US has had all this 2021, for example.

HBO Max Spain Price: No, there is no price increase

The question that worries more than one already subscribed to the standard HBO service, “Do I have to pay more if I am already a subscriber?” The answer is a resounding “NO”, since the price of 8.99 per month is also maintained for HBO Max. Yes, there will be a discount for those who subscribe annually, since the price will be € 69.99 for 12 months of service, which is equivalent to a saving of 30% since you pay 8 months and they give you 4 in this way.
