    If they restored the snydervers in full glory - Aflect Batman, Cavil superman, and a bunch of Snydervers style DC shows - everyone would subscribe. But they don't. Instead there trying to sell us something we can find on every other streaming service.

    I think there was a lot of luck in time in here. Netflix has been around forever, Disney+ launched before the pandemic began. HBO max got caught in the pandemic with a half form plan to to begin their streaming service.

    Considering HBO MAX can barely get subscribers even during the pandemic shows how much they messed-up. HBO MAX could've easily been a rival to Disney+ and Netflix, but ut screwed up so much that I don't see it happening anytime soon (at least not until 2024-2025). From no worldwide distribution (because they're locked in deals until 2025), not having Harry Potter until 2025, no big show like the Mandalirian at launch (they were going to have the Friends reunion, but I don't think that would've been enough for more than getting attention), having a seperate DC streaming service at launch..... Even the name "HBO MAX" is a mistake. It's too much adult-oriented, and not mainstream enough. It doesn't sound like something more than HBO (which mean if you don't have HBO already, why'd you get HBO MAX). And they had 3-4 different services called HBO at launch, which caused confusion.

  • Darrell Hardy
    Darrell Hardy19 days ago

    From what i gather from a recent financial times interview Jason Kilar is wanting to have HBOmax go fully worldwide but is tied up by existing contracts such as HBO's with Sky TV in the UK. I wonder how that will play into restoring the snyderverse. Also how well ZSJL sells on vod to buy. I would assume they'll be looking to see if they can convert international buyers into HBOmax subscribers. If ZSJL sells 10 milllion or so copies internationally, that's potentially 10 million international subscribers just for the restored Snyderverse. $15 a month would be $150 million & $1.8 Billion yearly. Are they really going to throw that away if the only way to see it is on HBOmax like Mandalorian is on Disney+? I thiink there's little more waiting to do & right now & ZSJL is still number 1 on the international VOD platforms it's currently been released on. Hopefully we'll get a better idea soon.

  • georgiehensley

    I actually like the HBO Max interface more than the Disney+ one, and the service overall. I just think it has better variety. It just needs some better branding (a "Warner" name rather than "HBO" would be a smart move) and some bigger, exclusive shows and movies. Which it could have if they restore the Snyderverse, I'm just saying!

    Soooo.... I have a package with Verizon FIOS which gives me a premium channel as part of the package. Because I have HBO as my premium choice channel, they gave me MAX access for free. This is HBO limited offer and I don't think they offer it anymore. That being said... this may be why they jumbled up the total numbers and the 3 million are people who subscribed to MAX taditionally.

    Easily called the Snyder cut fiasco. JUSTICE LEAGUE was a "failed" movie,with lots of Bad memories for folks. The ONLY ones interested in ANOTHER CUT of a failed movie are us "Hardcore fans". Usually not enough to truly "move the needle". Also BOTH Godzilla/Kong And Mortal Kombat are "niche crowd " Genre IPs, not Really mainstream,so again. Not really enough to "move the needle. None of this news is surprising.

    @Gil A HBO MAX is all about revenue. Disney Plus one year is 80 per year is 180 that’s more than double Disney Plus has 100m HBO max ha 50m. HBO Max is barely getting started and won’t be global until a few years. Netflix is different. They depend if their own home made original content more than ever and their global strategy of investing in local productions will keep them relevant for a long time. HBO is the most valuable legacy brand from the cable days. ( even motels would advertise having HBO back in the days)

    How did you even get to that number? Disney+ costs 8$ per month, and HBO MAX costs 15$ per month. So it's only twice the price, not 4 times. Netflix's prices are: 9$ for basic, 14$ for standard (which is a 1$ difference from the price of HBO MAX) and 18$ for premium.

  • James Richardson
    James Richardson20 days ago

    Also, as you say, for a company to own properties like DC, Potter and so on, its madness that they didn't launch with a serious on one of those titles like Disney did with Mando. Imagine a DC series made to the quality levels of Boardwalk Empire, imagine a Harry Potter series with some of the original cast members returning, and how much hype that would make.

  • M Baker

    It's probably not a good idea to have both HBO and HBO Max, but I don't have a problem with them reporting those numbers together. HBO is basically just HBO Max-Lite (in my understanding). I think they should just have one service.

    They're already limiting the amount of screens that can watch at once, so that won't help much. What they can do is use the location of the users to see whether there's more than one place which constantly uses the service. But even then, it can be one person having two different homes, or using it when visiting family.

    TAUSMC21 day ago

    Grace, you mentioned that HBO Max pricing is as much as Netflix so you don't think it is that. Well HBO Max is not at the same level as Netflix. I think they would do better with a $9.99 price point vs a $14.99 price point. I really think that would help. I think one of the reasons why Disney + is doing so well is because of the much cheaper pricing. Netflix even started much much lower in price when it first started. Then it increased when they got way more content and way more exclusives. People then still seen the value in Netflix. Where as HBO Max started off high and people don't see it as valuable to have for the price point. Those same people will not give it a chance because of the hight pricing. Oh Netflix even did new subscribers as 1 month free for a long time. I really do think HBO Max is priced too high for now. They need to do what Netflix and Disney + did and start out low and work their way up slowly.

    HBO max has great content but their marketing strategy makes no sense. They need to bite the bullet & go pure streaming. Hanging on to cable is like Blockbuster hanging on to DVD stores. Netflix let DVD go & went streaming. Some didn't like it but in the long run it was correct. Bluray & DVD markets are for long term owning not rent like cable kind of is. I got all 4 of the big ones. Apple is junk & I don't know anyone else.

    Hi grace, love your channel! I am subscribed to HBO Max through a complicated workaround that includes a VPN service, as I am located in Egypt. Every few weeks, the service gets interrupted for a day or two, but otherwise, it's working fine. I am really enjoying it and I hope they don't start making it more difficult to access once they start operating officially overseas, as I am happy with the content. It's the case for Netflix, which doesn't provide the same content here as it does in the US. I also have a similar setup for Disney plus. The problem is that there is a regional satellite service (based in Dubai) that has exclusive deals for most of the HBO original content (including the new Warner releases) and the Disney catalogue. However, it is satellite based (so, like cable TV) and their recently introduced streaming service doesn't provide the best image and sound qualities (no 4K, no surround sound), they're often a bit late and they're more expensive! Alos, not even the whole catalogue of Disney, Star Wars and Marvel is available! So I'm much better off finding workarounds like that in order to be able to get HBO Max and Disney+ content sooner and in better quality.

    Netflix charges different amounts for how many screens can simultaneously stream. This inherently means that they already deal with the issue of password sharing. Your theory that they’re going to do “something about it” makes you sound uninformed. HBO Max has shitty content compared to Netflix and Disney+. The Snyder Cut was a complete waste of money, and DC offerings in general compared to Marvel offerings, are terrible.

As i ve said before Disney for me only got the Marvel movies and i ve already watched them all. Once finished the Mandalorian and Wanda vision got nothing else for me but Falcon and the Winter soldier, which i tune in once a week for. Netflix i got it for over 10 years since their DVDs rental days, never leaving that. Amazon i can do without even tho they got so much stuff there, but i subscribed for the faster shipping, with streaming service side dish, for a long time i wasnt watching anything until their recent hits.

    It's even a problem with the name itself- HBO MAX. When I hear that, I think "HBO with a bit more content". And as someone who has no interest in HBO content, that name doesn't help. They chose the name to keep HBO subscribers and convince people to get the service, since HBO is the biggest advantage it has so far. But as they try to go more mainstream, they should really consider changing the name to something else.

    HBO Max is included if you subscribe to HBO with the biggest us cable company such as Xfinity, Verizon Fios, Cox, AT&T TV, Direct TV, Hulu, Apple, Amazon, and about 100 other providers.

    I finally broke down and subscribed to Disney+. Primarily for Marvel content, but some was simply because I wanted to see Star Wars again from the beginning. I've had Netflix since the days of DVD mailers. I have Prime mostly for reasons nothing to do with streaming. I got on Hulu at launch. I have not subscribed to HBOMax because it's expensive, and there's very, very little there I want to see. There isn't a single movie on the 2021 slate that made me say, "I want to see that". I think AT&T/WB is finding out in real time that their brand just isn't as popular as they thought it was. I think some fans of their stuff are finding that out as well. This is also not helped by the absolute tripe that DC continues to pump out.

    HBOMax is the price point. They needed to start low like Disney and raise price over time as people see the value in the service. Netflix also has a tiered service. You can get it for as low as $8.99 based on resolution.
