HBO Max has dropped the HBO name but kept the Max in its rebrand. The streaming service has brought in select favorites from Discovery+, and will from now on be known simply as “Max”. Even though it no longer has the brand recognition in its title, Max is still the place to watch popular HBO series like House of the Dragon, The Last of Us, Succession, and more.

What Is Streaming on Max?
Max brings together content from HBO Max and Discovery+ under one roof. From Discovery, this includes programming from brands like HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Magnolia Network, and more. Some of the shows include Property Brothers, House Hunters, Fixer Upper, among others.
The service will also maintain much of the content from HBO Max, including its slate of HBO Originals like The Last of Us, Euphoria, Succession, Barry, Curb Your Enthusiasm, White Lotus, House of the Dragon, and more. It will also include DC’s slate of movies like Black Adam and The Batman, as well as other popular films like Dune and The Menu. Plus, Max will continue to house popular streaming series like Friends, Full House, and the Harry Potter movie collection.
The service also promises to provide smarter recommendations, improved performance, easier sign in, profile PINs for adult profiles, and new genre hubs.
Back when it was HBO Max, we awarded it with a good score in our review of the streaming service, writing, “HBO Max’s key strength is an impressive catalog of shows and movies that stretch from HBO’s classics to some of the current hottest shows running.”
