Change of name and plans

Another of the changes that are about to be implemented is the name change, to go from HBO Max, to just ‘MAX’.
Bloomberg He adds that a press conference is planned for April 12 to publicize the details of this new service that merges HBO Max and Discovery+.
“That HBO Max, whatever we call it at launch, is a product that we take around the world that has a real impact on the way people consume content. We believe in the platform because we believe that we have the best content menu, the best portfolio, the best quality.
