HBO Max Grasping at Straws after Subscribers Threaten Mass Exodus, Offering 40% Subscription Discounts as Damage Control

HBO Max losing subscribers

For the last few weeks, HBO Max has been constantly trying to paper over the cracks that have been a direct result of its restructuring campaign. The major OTT platform has had tons of shows thrown into the bin ever since the new restructuring campaign from Warner Bros. Discovery took place, and it’s looking pretty ugly for them.

After the cancellation of Batgirl earlier this month (which led to a lot of unhappy fans), the major streaming platform has had tons of other shows that have been shown the door too. Some of the notable ones are Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, Uncle Grandpa, Infinity Train, and so on. The peeps over at their office are going to have to come up with an idea to put the fire out, and soon.

So What’s The Ultimate Plan To Get Themselves Out Of This Mess?

About a total of 36 titles will be going off the HBO Max streaming platform this week, and what’s more, that’ll include 20 of its own in-house productions! There’s honestly got to be a plan in place for damage control, though.

During a statement to Variety, Warner Bros. Discovery explained their plans for the streaming service, here’s the full statement-

“As we work toward bringing our content catalogs together under one platform, we will be making changes to the content offering available on both HBO Max and discovery+. That will include the removal of some content from both platforms.”

“At the same time, we’re already starting to bring our content catalogs together like the launch of the new CNN Originals Hub on discovery+ and a curated collection of Magnolia Network content coming soon to HBO Max.” 

It’s a shame that some shows have to go for others to come in place, let’s hope they add them back soon enough.
