HBO Max has made the most amazing business move in the history of cinema! YES! You read the title right. HBO will premiere all the movies on its streaming platform on the exact same day as their theatrical release.
And guess what is the best part? Unlike Disney Plus you get to watch them without paying even a single penny extra! How much did you pay for that disappointment called “Mulan”? $29.99? Well, you can tell Disney to take that one cent as well because HBO Max costs half of that for a whole month!
Imagine the number of movies you can watch right on their release date without even stepping out of your home! No ticket costs, no traveling cost, no paying extremely steep prices for the snacks at the theater! Just $14.99 per month and you have it all in your hands!
Jason Kilar, chief executive of WarnerMedia stated, “We see an opportunity to do something firmly focused on the fans, which is to provide choice. Whether that choice is to enjoy a great new movie out at the cinema, to open up HBO Max, or to do both.”
