Warner Bros launches new movie window for streaming in Asia

New movies from Warner Bros. such as The Suicide Squad will soon be available to stream on HBO Go as early as 45 days after their in-market theatrical premiere in Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Hong Kong, according to the media group.

The first movies to be available in the new window will be The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It – available now in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and Indonesia – followed by Space Jam: A New Legacy on September 3 in Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan, and October 17 in Thailand.

The launch date for Indonesia will be confirmed shortly. In The Heights will premiere on September 16 in all markets except Vietnam.

Other new titles from Warner Bros. Pictures launching in 2021 include Reminiscence, Dune, Malignant, Cry Macho, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard and The Matrix: Resurrections.

Amit Malhotra, managing director for HBO Max and HBO Go in Southeast Asia and India, said: “This new windowing strategy is great news for fans that haven’t been able to catch our movies in cinemas. With the addition of the latest Warner Bros. movie slate, HBO GO continues its reputation as the region’s exclusive streaming home for the very biggest and best from the world of entertainment.”

WarnerMedia has yet to fix a date for the launch of HBO Max, its global streaming offering, in Asia, where HBO is widely available. The latter offers a mix of HBO and HBO Asia series, mvoies and other content, along with kids content.
