Max

About

Max — nee HBO Max — is the current streaming service from Warner Bros. Discovery that combines the power of the Warner Bros. catalog with the depth of Discovery content. Along with HBO, that means you get the full breadth of Turner networks like TBS, TNT and more, and Discovery favorites like Deadliest Catch and Dr. Pimple Popper. It’s a bit of an odd marriage with its fair share of palace intrigue behind the scenes, but it’s also not time to count it out just yet.
