Of course, HBO cannot be accused of much in terms of the content of HBO Go, i.e. the materials available there, but in terms of quality, it is unfortunately a completely different league than the competition. It is enough to mention here that Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first movie broadcast by this streaming service in 4K quality, although for Netflix or Amazon Prime it has been standard for a long time (not to mention numerous problems of the application, which can be very irritating). It is true that we will wait a little longer, because the European HBO services will be replaced by the Max version only in the second half of next year, but this is undoubtedly great news.
Especially in the face of recent announcements from HBO Max, and more specifically, a great deal from the viewers' point of view with one of the largest American film companies, namely Warner Bros. It turns out that the publisher has decided ABOUT MUSICS simultaneously premiere all their next year's hits both in cinemas and in the HBO Max streaming service, which means that subscribers will be able to watch them in the comfort of their own home, sitting on the couch and, most importantly, without paying for this is additionally - an active subscription is enough. It is true that there are some limitations here, and more specifically, the movies will only be available for a month, but still plenty of time to watch them.
It should be emphasized here that Warner Bros. is responsible for the hits themselves, so the plans for next year include such productions as The Little Things, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, Dune or Matrix 4. Everything will start, however, this year, on December 25, when American viewers will be they could watch the second part of Wonder Woman in HBO Max, namely Wonder Woman 1984. After this announcement, one could expect that something was up, but no one expected such a revelation - it is worth noting that this is only about the States United States, but at the moment the service is not available anywhere else, so there is still time for possible announcements in Europe.
Especially since this is a decision dictated to a large extent by the coronavirus pandemic, which closes cinemas around the world - for example, we will not see the mentioned Wonder Woman as scheduled, because although the Polish premiere was supposed to take place on December 16, the decision to close the cinemas did its job. - We live in an unprecedented time that requires all creative solutions, including the new Warner Bros. initiative. Pictures Group. Nobody wants movies back to the big screens more than we do. We know that new content is at the heart of theatrical screenings, but we need to balance it with the reality where most US cinemas will operate with severe restrictions in 2021, WarnerMedia CEO Ann Sarnoff said when announcing the label's decision. So there is nothing else to do but rejoice and hope that next year we will also enjoy the cinema repertoire at home.
