Since HBO MAX launched last summer, it had been a US only streaming service, but that will change in June. As WarnerMedia has announced that HBO MAX will be coming to additional countries in June. HBO MAX will launch in 39 Caribbean and Latin American territories. Which is a bit of an odd choice for the first expansion outside of the US, but it’s a start.
These territories include Mexico, Brazil, Haiti, Jamaica and Venezuela to name a few. As it did in the US, the launch of HBO MAX will phase out HBO Go. Those that do have HBO Go will get “instant access” to Max. Basically, HBO Go will get updated to HBO MAX.
HBO MAX hasn’t confirmed pricing yet
We still have a few months before the service launches in the Caribbean and Latin America territories, but HBO MAX has not confirmed pricing just yet.
In the US, it costs $15 per month, which is the same as HBO Go before it. We’d expect it to be the same in these new territories.
HBO MAX is available on most of the popular streaming platforms. That includes Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Android TV, Apple TV and even the latest gaming consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox X|S. It also includes smartphones running Android and iOS, as well as tablets. So that no matter where you are, you’ll be able to stream HBO MAX.
WarnerMedia still has not announced when the service will launch in more markets. And seeing it come to the Caribbean and Latin America first is a bit surprising. Typically services will launch in bigger markets first, like Europe and Canada. But HBO is pretty popular in these Caribbean and Latin America territories already, so it likely makes more sense to WarnerMedia.
We should be seeing it launch in more territories and regions in the coming year.
