Nordic pay TV operator Telia has announced a distribution deal with WarnerMedia for HBO Max.
The premium streamer will launch in Europe at the end of the month, and Telia has confirmed that existing HBO Nordic accounts set up via its platform will be replaced by HBO Max.
While it will omit the day-and-date theatrical releases that caused controversy in the US, the platform will launch movies like Dune and The Matrix Resurrections 45 days after their Nordic theatrical release.
The platform will offer movies, kids shows and original series from Warner Bros., HBO, DC, Cartoon Network and Max Originals. HBO Max will also house European-created Max Originals including the Danish series Kamikaze and Norway’s Beforeigners.
Catrin von Walden, Head of Business and content management at Telia, said: “It feels great that we can give our customers in the Nordics an enhanced viewing experience and more entertainment via HBO Max, who is gathering the best entertainment in one place. Family and friends can now get together and enjoy a better and broader content line-up, perfectly aligned with the premium experience we want to offer our customers.”
