What Is HBO Max and Is It Worth It?
After the merger, AT&T rebranded Time Warner as WarnerMedia to steer away from any image and confusion issues with Time Warner the cable company, who is also in the midst of a brand change to Spectrum after being bought by Charter Communications.
Ironically, the HBO Max name is stirring up its own confusion.
HBO Max isn’t HBO, but rather the name that was chosen because of the premium cable network’s notoriety. When the stand-alone streaming service launches on 27 May, it not only will carry HBO’s entire catalog but curated content from across WarnerMedia’s networks, as well as dozens of original programs.
