HBO Max will, at last, make its international debut in June, with the streaming service set to launch in Latin America and the Caribbean. At present, HBO Max is just accessible in the United States.
The Latin America rollout is only the first phase of HBO Max’s international debut. The organization guarantees it will likewise transition HBO-branded services in Europe (explicitly, “the Nordics, Spain, Central Europe, and Portugal”) to HBO Max later this year.
The June launch will see HBO Max grow to 39 nations and domains across Latin America and the Caribbean, including Anguilla, Antigua, Argentina, Aruba, B.V.I., Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Montserrat, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
Similarly, as with the (somewhat messy) launch in the US, WarnerMedia will eliminate the HBO Go application and service altogether and supplant it with another HBO Max application that should look virtually indistinguishable from the US app. Clients who pay for HBO Go directly through WarnerMedia (or through “eligible partners”) will automatically be changed over to HBO Max — ideally with less confusion than the US rollout.
The organization guarantees it’ll have more subtleties for the Latin America rollout — including what content will be accessible, promotional offers, and more — nearer to launch.
