A new streaming platform in France. Max, a merger of HBO Max and Discovery+, will be launched on June 11, the American group Warner Bros. Discovery announced this Tuesday, May 7. A few days later, on June 17, she will offer the highly anticipated season 2 of House of the Dragonderived from the globally successful series Game Of Thrones. It will offer three price levels: 5.99 euros per month with advertising, 9.99 euros for simultaneous viewing on two devices or 13.99 euros for four devices.

The launch in France of the HBO Max platform had in fact been postponed indefinitely after the giant merger in 2022 between WarnerMedia, parent company of HBO and CNN, and Discovery (Eurosport). In March, the American group born from this merger indicated that its platform would be launched before the Paris Olympics.
