Haven't seen this one mentioned yet. Looks intriguing, but I'm a sucker for all things sci-fi.

Yes. If you have HBO Now or HBO Go you have HBO Max. The problem (for me anyway) is that HBO Max doesn't have a Roku app and HBO(or Roku - I don't know) killed off HBO Go (or whatever the cable/satellite version is - maybe it's Now) so I can't use my Rokus to watch any HBO content.

Which channels have the rights on those 20+ year old cartoons? I haven't seen them on TV at all lately.

I don't know what you're looking for that you can't find on Max. And it's not "channels", broadcast licenses. And since I don't work at Warner's, I'm not familiar with their agreements.

There are Looney Toons from the 30's through this decade along with a lot of other content, although their current library pales in comparison to Disney+, which unlike Max, converted and broadcast their library in 4K UHD the day it went online.

‘Dune,’ ‘Matrix 4,’ and Every 2021 Warner Bros. Film to Debut on HBO Max and in Theaters at Same Time

https://www.indiewire.com/2020/12/du...ax-1234602168/

Warner Bros. Pictures Group has announced its entire 2021 film slate will open via a “distribution model in which Warner Bros. will continue to exhibit the films theatrically worldwide, while adding an exclusive one month access period on the HBO Max streaming platform in the U.S. concurrent with the film’s domestic release.” The strategy is identical to studio’s upcoming release of “Wonder Woman 1984,” which launches in theaters and on HBO Max for a month on December 25. Following the one-month HBO Max streaming run, all films will continue to play exclusively in theaters “with all customary distribution windows applying to the title.”

Warner Bros. has the following films included on its 2021 slate for now (release dates could change, of course): “The Little Things,” “Judas and the Black Messiah,” “Tom & Jerry,” “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “Mortal Kombat,” “Those Who Wish Me Dead,” “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” “In The Heights,” “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” “The Suicide Squad,” “Reminiscence,” “Malignant,” “Dune,” “The Many Saints of Newark,” “King Richard,” “Cry Macho,” and “Matrix 4.”

WarnerMedia Chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff said in a statement: “We’re living in unprecedented times which call for creative solutions, including this new initiative for the Warner Bros. Pictures Group. No one wants films back on the big screen more than we do. We know new content is the lifeblood of theatrical exhibition, but we have to balance this with the reality that most theaters in the U.S. will likely operate at reduced capacity throughout 2021.

“With this unique one-year plan, we can support our partners in exhibition with a steady pipeline of world-class films, while also giving moviegoers who may not have access to theaters or aren’t quite ready to go back to the movies the chance to see our amazing 2021 films,” Sarnoff continued. “We see it as a win-win for film lovers and exhibitors, and we’re extremely grateful to our filmmaking partners for working with us on this innovative response to these circumstances.”

An official release from Warner Bros. said this ground-breaking hybrid distribution model “was created as a strategic response to the impact of the ongoing global pandemic.” The model is only being used for Warner Bros.’ 2021 slate at this time.

“This hybrid exhibition model enables us to best support our films, creative partners and moviegoing in general throughout 2021,” Warner Bros. Pictures Group Chairman Toby Emmerich said in his own statement. “We have a fantastic, wide ranging slate of titles from talented and visionary filmmakers next year, and we’re excited to be able get these movies in front of audiences around the world. And, as always, we’ll support all of our releases with innovative and robust marketing campaigns for their theatrical debuts, while highlighting this unique opportunity to see our films domestically via HBO Max as well.”

All eyes now move to the “Wonder Woman 1984” release to see how successful the distribution model is for WarnerMedia and movie theaters.

Interesting. Are any of those movies supposed to be any good?

None of those movies have been screened yet by critics and audiences to it's anyone's guess.

I have a good friend that worked on Space Jam 2 who said that if you liked the first movie, you'll most likely enjoy the second movie.

The Many Saints of Newark is a Sopranos prequel, with Gandolfini's son acting as a young Tony.

Dune is Denis Villeneuve's version of the classic book while Matrix 4 is completely unknown at this point, other than the returning actors.

I don't know much about the rest, although I'm not sure that the world needed yet another version of King Richard.

You think Disney, universal and paramount follow suit ?

HBO is way behind the curve in terms of their streaming service and if they want to compete with Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon, releasing their 2021 slate and beyond directly to HBO Max should help to increase their viewership.

As I previously mentioned, HBO Max has only 36 million subscribers and only 8 million HBO Max activations.

Netflix currently has more than 173 million subs while Disney+ has 74 million and they're hoping to reach 170 million by 2025.

HBO Max needed to do something drastic, especially since they haven't had any new and sustainable "Water Cooler" TV series in years.

Disney? No, not at this time, although they did release Pixar's Onward about 3 weeks after release and have added their next, Soul, to Disney+ beginning on December 25th. But they have plenty of cash to stay afloat and their subscriber base is rapidly expanding.

Paramount has been historically stingy with their releases although that might change in the coming years after Paramount Plus is launched in 1Q2021, which will combine CBS All Access with all of Viacom's and Paramount's IP.

Universal's streaming is lagging way behind Disney+ but they're fairly stubborn as well so it might take a while, although again, they did release the Trolls movie on PVOD earlier this year. But I doubt they release a Fast & Furious movie, which is on its last legs as a franchise and essentially (Uni's only franchise), on the Peacock for free.

I know one thing they did, they put a clinch on Directv. I dropped all the premium channels in the spring, dumped the Premier package for the Extra package so I could cover the cost of NFL Ticket. I ended up getting a $60 a month credit but paying full price for the ticket, it was their indirect way of giving me the ticket for nothing and the credits are for 12 months.

Anyway, this week I got message all the premium channels were free five day preview. So I go to channel 501, HBO and there it's still blocked, after I flip through a few channels a sign comes up and said, thanks for subscripting to HBO Max. I couldn't get off the channel, I had to turn off the box so I go to another channel. I went on the website and saw it had been added for $14.99 a month so I deleted it, or thought I had. BTW, the website is a nightmare since AT&T bought them.

I go back to the website today to pay my bill and I see HBO Max is still there for $14.99 and last night when I just flipping through the channels it said, thanks for subscripting to A&E and for more A&E go to channel 1265. I already have A&E, it's part of my package.

Today I had to finally call and talk to a human, and after a 5 minute hold listening to a static filled recording of how great Directv is, I told the woman I've been with you since 2008 and when the football season is over I'm switching to something else and gave all the reasons. She said she took everything off the bill and backdated the HBO Max to 10/26 when it started on my bill. I said, that's the day it was suppose to be free, read the memos you send out.

Hmmm...interesting marketing concept. It has me less likely to cancel MAX than I was before I saw this so in that sense it works. The Sopranos prequel is intriguing, at least. Thanks for the run-down.
