Already available in the Nordics and Spain, the streaming service will add Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia to its European footprint.
HBO Max is currently live in 46 territories across the Americas and Europe, with the number rising to 61 with the latest launches. Later this year it will expand to a further six European countries including Greece and Turkey.
Christina Sulebakk, general manager, HBO Max EMEA, said: “HBO Max is a new streaming experience offering the very best entertainment, movies, original series and kids programming from Warner Bros., HBO, DC, Cartoon Network, Max Originals and more. We are thrilled to confirm that on 8th March, HBO Max is arriving in 15 additional European countries as we continue making the platform available across the continent and beyond.”
Last month it was announced HBO Max and HBO had reached a total of 73.8 million subscribers globally, beating WarnerMedia’s own forecast.
The announcement follows the news that rival Disney Plus intends to expand its European footprint in 20 more countries over the summer.
