Where is Everything Else ? What happened to Foodie love ? More and more subscribers are coming to social networks asking why HBO Max series and movies have disappeared . The catalog of this streaming platform is only shrinking, and the news that the Batgirl movie will not even be released despite being in post-production has raised even more concern about the immediate future of HBO Max.
The merger of Warner Bros (parent company of HBO Max) and Discovery on April 8 gave rise to Warner Bros Discovery , a new giant in the world of audiovisual content. At the forefront of the merger is David Zaslav (Discovery) in charge of piloting the new stage, marked by the objective of achieving annual savings of 3,000 million dollars to alleviate a total debt of 43,000 million , which has meant a large number of layoffs in the company.
Within these adjustments, one of the big losers is the streaming platform HBO Max , whose original production in Europe was stopped on July 4. Although in Spain the filming of series such as Por H or por B or ‘¡García!’ –the latter will be released in the fall-, several titles have been discreetly disappearing from the catalogue, something that has not gone unnoticed by subscribers.
The HBO Max catalog has also been discreetly reducing its American titles. Variety reported that the films An American Pickle , Charm City Kings , Locked Down , Moonshot , The Witches and Superintelligence are no longer available to stream , despite starring A-list stars like Anne Hathaway and Seth Rogen. None of these withdrawals from the catalog have been announced by HBO Max, leaving it to the viewers to realize what happened.
