HBO MAX stops quick release of new movies
The super investment a thing of the past - PopCorn Time
The streaming service's popular "Project Popcorn" is being scrapped, and feature films will no longer be released on HBO Max forty-five days after their premieres.
Since HBO Max was launched last fall, we have been able to enjoy movies in the streaming range earlier than ever before, which has been a major attraction among their subscribers. But now they choose to change strategy, this because it should not be financially sustainable. Luckily we can still cover these movies through our IPTV channels.
HBO Max has sent blockbusters like The Batman and Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore's Secret to the streaming service after just forty-five days in theaters. This was supposed to continue through 2022, but with Warner Media — which owns the streaming service — teaming up with Discovery Inc., things have changed behind the scenes. Not least, Warner Media's CEO Jason Kilar, who is said to have been driving the so-called "Project Popcorn", had to leave his post. Likewise, several HBO Max original movies have disappeared from the service.
