HBO Max compared to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and others

HBO’s superpower seems to be the 50 years in the content creation. HBO Max from WarnerMedia combines original content, decades of Warner Bros. films and television shows, along with programs from WarnerMedia-owned networks like CNN, TNT, and TBS. Unlike Netflix in its current iteration and, to a lesser extent, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max is relying on that library of content to lure in subscribers—more like Disney+.

AT&T, the parent company of HBO, plans to spend more than $4.5 billion on the project over the next few years. The company is eyeing 50 million subscribers by 2025 and envisions that the service will eventually generate billions in annual profits as it takes on Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Apple TV Plus and Peacock, among others, in the increasingly crowded field of online entertainment.
