HBO Max will eliminate 36 series and neither viewers nor creators are happy • ENTER.CO

Since we learned that HBO Max will merge with Discovery + on the same platform, few details have been revealed about it. However, today it was confirmed that what users feared the most is happening: HBO Max is removing (quite a few) titles from its catalog.

The first medium to confirm it was Variety, from where they explained that this new cash move is part of the merger between both platforms. And it is that, in just the last week, HBO Max has removed at least 20 productions from its platform; the plan is to suppress 36 series and movies in total. Unfortunately for many, the titles mainly affected are original productions of HBO and Cartoon Network; however, productions acquired from other companies will also fall.

But come on, we are already predisposed to this movement; In a statement sent to Variety, HBO Max said: “As we work to bring our content catalogs together on a single platform, we will be making changes to the content offerings available on both HBO Max and Discovery+. That will include the removal of some content from both platforms.”

In exchange for these removed titles, the platform confirmed that they will begin showing Discovery+ reality shows at the end of next September. But, this has not given users much peace of mind and especially the creators of the eliminated productions. Several of them have expressed their disagreement such as Julia Pot, creator of the animated program “Summer Camp Island”. Pot noted on her twitter that the creators had no further information about the removal of the content from HBO Max. However, the company has not spoken about its communication to the creators of the series.

Although the merger will not take place until well into 2023, it is already wreaking havoc on the platform. But, to keep users satisfied, HBO has thought of something like: fewer titles, cheaper. In some countries discounts of up to 40% have been seen in the plans offered by the streaming platform; however, in Colombia the same prices are still maintained.

This is the list of removed titles:
