    HBO Max - discovery+

    HBO Go va deveni HBO Max in Romania anul acesta.
    discovery+ se va lansa in Romania, prin Vodafone (fostul UPC), in 2021/2022.

    AT&T, prin WarnerMedia, si Discovery s-au aliat intr-o noua companie de entertainment. Detalii:
    AT&T’s WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc. Creating Standalone Company by Combining Operations to Form New Global Leader in Entertainment
    WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc. Form One of the Largest Global Streaming Players

    AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) and Discovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) today announced a definitive agreement to combine WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery's leading nonfiction and international entertainment and sports businesses to create a premier, standalone global entertainment company.

    Under the terms of the agreement, which is structured as an all-stock, Reverse Morris Trust transaction, AT&T would receive $43 billion (subject to adjustment) in a combination of cash, debt securities, and WarnerMedia’s retention of certain debt, and AT&T’s shareholders would receive stock representing 71% of the new company; Discovery shareholders would own 29% of the new company. The Boards of Directors of both AT&T and Discovery have approved the transaction.

    A Stronger Competitor in Global Streaming
    The new company will compete globally in the fast-growing direct-to-consumer business -- bringing compelling content to DTC subscribers across its portfolio, including HBO Max and the recently launched discovery+. The transaction will combine WarnerMedia’s storied content library of popular and valuable IP with Discovery’s global footprint, trove of local-language content and deep regional expertise across more than 200 countries and territories. The new company will be able to invest in more original content for its streaming services, enhance the programming options across its global linear pay TV and broadcast channels, and offer more innovative video experiences and consumer choices.

    Uniting Dynamic, Enduring and Historic Brands and Franchises
    The “pure play” content company will own one of the deepest libraries in the world with nearly 200,000 hours of iconic programming and will bring together over 100 of the most cherished, popular and trusted brands in the world under one global portfolio, including: HBO, Warner Bros., Discovery, DC Comics, CNN, Cartoon Network, HGTV, Food Network, the Turner Networks, TNT, TBS, Eurosport, Magnolia, TLC, Animal Planet, ID and many more.

    The new company will be able to increase investment and capabilities in original content and programming; create more opportunity for under-represented storytellers and independent creators; serve customers with innovative video experiences and points of engagement; and propel more investment in high-quality, family-friendly nonfiction content.

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, ce acopera studiourile de jocuri, face parte partial din intelegere, unele studiouri nu se duc in noua companie.

    N-are legatura cu ce s-a anuntat astazi, doar setam contextul:
    HBO GO va deveni HBO Max anul urmator conform sefului HBO Max, Andy Forssel in cadrul conferintei Web Summit, aceasta decizie fiind luata in urma procesului de extindere HBO Max in Europa si America Latina, anunta siliconrepublic.com. Aceasta modificare va fi efectuata, bineinteles, si in Romania.
    HBO GO va deveni HBO Max - Blog Media Max

    - tranzactia se asteapta sa se incheie in 2022
    - au un nume pentru noua companie, o sa il anunte in curand
    - nu e clar ce o sa faca pe streaming: o singura platforma sau mai multe
    - cumulat, cele doua entitati investeau ~$20 miliarde/an in continut si vor sa continue asa

    Asta este o veste foarte buna, dar sunt curios daca vor aduce acelasi content, day 1 si in RO (adica filmele noi).

    LE: Oricum vad ca zice de anul urmator nu de anul asta, deci m-am entuziasmat degeaba
    Pana atunci, daca trece pandemia, nu cred ca vor mai lansa ei day 1 filmele astea mari, ci vor merge direct in cinema.

    Ideea e ca daca se face trecerea de la GO la Max o sa vina si cu o majorare a pretului. Ce se intampla acum cu GO la noi e cam ciudat si nu se mai intampla in multe tari. Se vor alinia la pret cu celelate servicii de genul (Netflix, Amazon etc)

    Horsman says WarnerMedia and Discovery have “all to play for” in terms of what they choose to do with their streamers. “The key will be to have the ease to buy a single proposition [if they choose to bundle], whether that’s paying a bit more — or a lot more,” says Horsman.

    As for timing, while some have questioned whether HBO Max might delay its international launches until the deal closes in mid-2022, sources have shut down this possibility, noting that there is “no change in direction” for the South America and Europe launches at it stands. “Both HBO Max and Discovery Plus have come so far in the last few months; to go back on that would be quite tricky,” said one insider.

    Conferinta a fost in 2020, deci "anul urmator" e 2021.
    In US si UK, din 2022 nu vor mai fi lansari simultan, ci cu o intarziere de 45 zile cand ajung pe streaming.

    HBO Max va avea si o versiunea mai ieftina in US, ad-supported.

    “The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of”

    Discovery Chief Executive Officer David Zaslav announced the name during a town hall meeting Tuesday with WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar. Mr. Zaslav, who will lead Warner Bros. Discovery, added that the name is meant to evoke the company’s focus on storytelling, exemplified by the nearly century-old Warner Bros. studio.

    Also during the town hall, Mr. Zaslav said the new company’s tagline will be “The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of,” a reference to the classic 1941 noir film “The Maltese Falcon” starring Humphrey Bogart and distributed by the Warner Bros. film studio. During one scene in the movie Mr. Bogart’s character, Sam Spade, refers to the titular Maltese Falcon statuette as “the stuff that dreams are made of,” a line that riffs on a similar one in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.”

    Mr. Zaslav said during the meeting that the company’s new name and tagline are intended to emphasize its heritage as a content company.
