HBO Max will add thousands of new shows with no price increase
But it might be dropping the HBO name.
HBO Max will get a significant shakeup in the next few months, including adding thousands of new shows without increasing prices.
And a new report from Bloomberg sheds some light on what that will look like.
The new service will add thousands of shows from Discovery’s unscripted lifestyle library to the HBO Max service. Discovery Plus will reportedly stay the way it is.
A new $20 tier will also be introduced, providing upgraded video quality and some other possible features.
Bloomberg’s sources also say that the service will change its name. The belief is that the name “HBO” might turn some people away.
On the one hand, that makes a little sense. HBO stands for Home Box Office, which many people might relate to just movies. But the new service will focus on a lot more TV shows.
On the other hand, HBO is a well-known and respected name in entertainment. And when it has to compete with content juggernauts like Netflix, it’s very platform for itself.
The platform has produced many critically acclaimed shows, so the change seems questionable. The company will reveal details of its upcoming shift in a press event next month.
Stay tuned to know exactly what the new HBO Max will look like.
