Amazon and WBD reveal pricing for Warner Pass

Amazon Prime Video has unveiled the pricing for the new Warner Pass streaming offering from Warner Bros. Discovery in France. The servie will be available for €9.99 a month from this Thursday.

Warner Pass will include all HBO content that is not currently distributed via OCS, including 12 Warner Bros. Discovery channels.

At launch, Prime customers in France can sign up for on-demand content from Warner TV, Toonami and Adult Swim. Other channels including TCM Cinéma, Eurosport, CNN, Discovery Channel, ID, Discovery Science, Cartoon Network and Boomerang will be made available over the course of March.

Warner Bros. Discovery will meanwhile launch kids channel Cortoonito in France on April 3. This will also be available on the set-top boxes of ISPs Orange, Free, SFR and Bouygues Telecom.


The launch comes after Warner Bros. Discovery’s decision last year to halt its global rollout of HBO Max and the introduction of a plan to launch its new combined streamer in France. The new streamer is set to debut in France next year.

The Warner Pass will meanwhile bring together new seasons of HBO shows including Succession, Perry Mason, The Gilded Age, Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, Barry, Somebody Somewhere, hotly anticipated new series such as True Detective: Night Country, The Idol and White House Plumbers as well as exclusive access to HBO’s rich library of iconic series, like Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Sex And The City, The Wire, Veep and Chernobyl.

Pierre Branco, general manager France, Benelux and Africa at Warner Bros. Discovery said: “We are thrilled to agree a new partnership with Prime Video in France. The launch of the ‘Warner Pass’ is great news for the French audience as our fans will be able to access all HBO series and our 12 television channels with a single subscription.”

The launch of Warner Pass comes as the battle for streaming consumers is heating up in France. Canal+ has just launched a new combined streaming offering aimed exclusively at those under 26 years old.

The new service, Rat+, combines streaming services Disney+, Netflix, Paramount+ and OCS with a wide range of pay TV offerings from Canal+.

Rat+ is currently available at the highly competitive promotional price of €19.49 a month until April 19. In addition to the streaming services, it provides access to linear channels Canal+, Canal+ Sport, Foot, Sport 360, Cinéma, Grand Ecran Docs, Kids and Canal+ Séries along with six Ciné+ offerings.

Would-be subscribers can sign up for the service using their French identity card to prove they are under the 26 years age limit.
