Popular WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max is coming to six European countries in October. Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Spain, and Andorra will be the first to get access on October 26.
Another wave of countries will be added to that list in 2022: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
While HBO Max will continue to spread in Europe, there are currently no plans to launch the streaming service in France, Italy, Germany, and the U.K. WarnerMedia currently has deals in place with other streaming services in those countries.
HBO Max launched in the U.S. in May 2020. It has since expanded to 39 regions in Latin America and the Caribbean.
“This is a historic moment as HBO Max lands in Europe,” said Johannes Larcher, Head of HBO Max International. “WarnerMedia movies and series like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and The Big Bang Theory are passionately consumed by fans all across Europe, and HBO Max has been created to provide them with the most intuitive and convenient viewing experience to watch these and a diverse range of other amazing titles.”
HBO has not yet announced the cost of the streaming service in Europe but will announce subscription costs in October.
