Discovery+ and HBO Max to Remain Separate Entities, Despite Plans for a “Super Service”
- 16 Feb 2023
The recent merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery has raised questions about the future of their streaming services - Discovery+ and HBO.
Rumors had been circulating about a potential merger of the two services, but the Wall Street Journal has recently reported that the two streaming services will remain separate. Despite this, the company still plans to offer a “super service” with programming from both offerings.
The idea of a “super service” will be a combination of the content from Discovery+ and HBO Max, giving users access to a wider variety of content. This could include classic shows from both services, as well as exclusive content from both services. By combining the two services, users could potentially get more value for their money.
At the same time, it’s important to note that the services will remain separate. This means that users will still need to purchase separate subscriptions for each service in order to access the content. This could make it more difficult for users to access the full range of content from both services, as they would need to purchase two separate subscriptions.
The Wall Street Journal also reported that the company is looking into ways to make it easier for users to access the content from both services. This could include a combined subscription plan that allows users to access content from both services for a single fee.
It’s unclear if such a plan will be implemented, but it could be a way for the company to make it easier for users to access the full range of content available on both services.
