The new Warner Media service, literally bet everything on HBO Max, and not just for using the recognized name of the television network, but also for the first time that it includes a large part of the content catalog of almost all its networks.
For this reason, it becomes a great option that seeks to compete with the greats: Netflix, Disney + and Prime Video. Well, here we will give you some important details.

Well, we know that in Mexico we have HBO Go available, however, there is a big difference, in HBO Max you will not only have channel content, like the previous one, but it will include exclusive content, which we will not have available on television.
In short, the biggest difference between these is the content library. Go offers seasons and episodes of HBO shows, as well as movies and television specials. Max will add exclusive originals plus a selection of non-HBO shows and movies, plus all HBO content.

For this reason, in our neighboring country to the north, there is tremendous chaos, because according to the company HBO Max is not replacing HBO Go, but HBO Max is replacing HBO Now. HBO Now or HBO cable users will now have to log in through the HBO Max app. If you have a Now subscription it will be automatically updated to Max.
However, this problem does not affect us at all because, as we already mentioned, in Mexico there is only HBO Go. So when the platform arrives in our country there will not be so many complications.
The platform is available as an application for iOS and Android, as well as for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also for Apple TV, however, it is not for Amazon TV. We can also enjoy it on Android TV and Samsung SmartsTVs 2016-2020 models and of course it can be accessed via the web.
On the other hand, it does not have support for 4K HDR resolution, although they affirm that they will add it later. They will also allow you to download content for offline viewing, but again, it is not yet available and restrictions are unknown.
On the other hand, HBO Max only has a single subscription plan, which allows you to view content on four devices at once. In turn, the platform will allow us to create individual profiles and recommend content to other people, create lists and make people join them, yes, like Spotify.
So far it is the most expensive platform on the market, it is priced at $ 14.99 and there is only one package available. It only offers a 7-day trial on Android and iPhone devices and it is expected that by 2021 we will have it available in Mexico.
