    HBO Max Is Launching Soon And Here Are The Movies And TV Shows That Will Be There On Day One

    The one where you had to decide about getting another streaming service!

    So as you might have already heard, WarnerMedia is jumping into the streaming biz and launching its own brand new service, HBO Max.

    And earlier today, they announced some of the things to expect when HBO Max launches on May 27.

    Arguably the biggest thing it will launch with is Friends, which left Netflix at the beginning of this year.

    The streaming service will also air the eventual Friends reunion, which was originally supposed to launch with HBO Max but was delayed because of the coronavirus.

    Also launching with HBO Max is all 12 seasons of The Big Bang Theory.

    And 23 seasons of South Park (plus three new seasons to come — which will allow you to watch a new episode 24 hours after it airs on Comedy Central).

    Also, the service will begin streaming additional classic TV shows from its launch date through the fall.

    Of course, you'll also get access to all those great HBO shows like Game of Thrones and Succession.

    There will be 80 11-minute episodes of the new shorts!

    And finally, Elmo will be getting his own late-night-style talk show titled The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo, where he'll interview celebrities and I am hoping a lot of the other Sesame Street Muppets as well!
