HBO Max will also have exclusive streaming rights to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Pretty Little Liars. According to WB there are no plans to discontinue those services (so no worries, DC Universe fans), but with HBO Max you would get all their content under one roof.

With "Friends" being available on WarnerMedia's HBO Max streaming service, numerous fans of the show may take the subscription there. Max will be under Warner Media, meaning that the new streaming competitor will be reclaiming licenses of many titles that had been available on various VOD services.

You know that HBO costs $15 a month to stream, so HBO Max will probably cost even more, putting it at the extreme high end of the streaming market. Late previous year, Netflix signed an eye-watering $80 million rerun deal to keep the beloved 90s sitcom streaming on the platform "through 2019". As the company believes bringing back the show will definitely increase viewer on a new streaming platform.

The most-viewed Netflix show was workplace comedy "The Office", which will switch from Netflix to a planned digital offering from Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal in 2021. In a press release, the company said that the streaming platform will have "an impressive direct-to-consumer experience for everyone ranging from families with young children to adults of all ages".
