Oh, that's good to know, thanks. I've had it sideloaded but it's nice if it's available proper now.
If HBO finally struck a deal with Amazon, it gives me hope that they'll come to an agreement with Roku. (As a Roku TV owner, I sure hope so.)
I plan to get HBOMAX on Christmas day. Kind of a Christmas gift. Also it will be fun to be able to watch Wonder Woman 84 which I think is put on the service that day or the day before.
I was hoping to watch the second movie in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, but they apparently pulled them over the weekend. I know they were in the "last chance" section, but I was hoping I'd have time to watch them all before they pulled them. I wish it would tell you what day they are actually pulling them.
^ The first day of the month usually has a lot of turnover amongst streaming services.
I wonder if you should sign up a day or two early because Xmas might see the service pretty swamped.
2 random things... 1. WHy is this in the Sci-Fi thread? Shouldn't it be in general TV Media? (though there IS a lot of Sci-Fi & Fantasy there
2. Just saw on our Comcast/Xfinity Box an "HBOMax app"... but right now, at least for me, just has first episodes of some shows (like Titans and DOom Patrol). i think if you have HBO itself, you mght be able to watch more... i hope they set it up very soon for those with just the HBOMax subscription
HBO Max is looking to make original DC Comics-based content outside of the U.S. for the first time
Looks like all of Warner's movies are now going to be going straight to HBO MAX or HBO which I guess is the same thing at this point. Wonder Woman 84 is the Vanguard to the new era of streaming over movie theaters.
That's not what's happening at all.
For one month with each of the films on their 2021 slate, Warner Bros. is offering audiences the option of going to theaters or viewing said movies via video-on-demand.
Following that one-month period, audiences will have to patronize theaters in order to view each of said films.
1. HBO Max and movie theaters will release a movie on the same day(For example Dune)
2. HBO Max will stream the movie for one month
After that the movie will continue on in theaters till the end of it's run.
But if people pay to see it at home then who is going to go see it in the theater? Seems like the theaters will still loose money and the movie will be back on HBO for free in a very short time.
Trying to think of characters and concepts suitable for this, I'm a bit stumped. There are the Global Guardians, but most of those characters were really lazy stereotypes.
Other than that, there are Katana and Doctor Light as possible Japanese content, and maybe another attempt at John Constantine, but that last one seems unlikely with a sequel to the Keanu Reeves version already in the works.
Vixen might be easy to turn into an African concept, but the character comes from a fictional country. She has also ties to Ghana, though.
I almost forgot about the Chinese Justice League. That might work. Though, not even Netflix is in China, so I doubt HBO Max will get to roll out there.
Maybe a French crime thriller about Henri Ducard?
Enemy Ace might work, but would probably need a different title for Germany.
They'll never do it, but I'd love to see a Justice League Europe or Justice League International series. It's a mix of characters so you don't have the issues that Global Guardians could have, and if they did it maybe slightly more humorous than a normal DC show, although not a parody like Legends is, it could be fun. A bunch of B-list heroes having aventures in international settings.
I definitely would love the JLI series. It was one of my favorite comics, and made me actually LOL.
Definite NOT all comic shows should be like that, but we need to have AT LEAST one.
There really aren't any big foreign DC characters that really jump out at me. Most of the international characters I can think of come from Marvel. Marvel even has a whole lineup of British characters like Captain Britain and Union Jack.
Wonder Woman isn't American and she could just as easy fight crime in another country.
HBO Max coming to Roku on December 17th
Hey! That's tomorrow! But we just added it to our Xfinity Box... i guess they fully upgraded to it yesterday. (Last week, they only allowed previews of a few episodes of shows).
So we are all set for WW84.
