It's always been that way. I've had HBO Max since early 2021, and Last Week Tonight on the platform has always been last season and current season.

Movies rotate in and out every month and the licensing varies in length. So no shockers there.

I promise you I could pull episodes from years earlier. I showed the Times Square musical.number to several friends over the years. Don't know when it was pulled but it certainly hasn't always been just two seasons of content available.

You know, I saw someone else say the same thing on Reddit that you did, and someone else responding to them who had the same experience as I did. So I don't know what to make of that. I've always subscribed directly through hbomax.com. Do you maybe have a different type of subscription? Like, access through HBO linear or AT&T or Prime Video Channels or Hulu Add-on or something?

Yeah, I remember the days of 'What's Coming & Going on Netflix in April' (for example). 'Removal of 12 Major Movies' seems a bit hyperbolic to me.

Click bait at its worst.

Last month and this month, Max started issuing press releases with full lists of what’s coming and going in the upcoming month, which is a good thing since they neutered the Leaving Soon list in the new Max interface. Here’s the full list for next month:

Re: Max Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

HBO in particular as a linear channel changes up their lineup at the same time at the beginning of the month. But it's good that they're giving people notice again, always thought it was crappy to pull things with no warning considering they know in advance when they're pulling things.

Yeah it's just a small list, but it's still cool to get a heads up about any films coming and going. Apologies to all you cool kids that can't be bothered

Re: Max Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

Anyone having weird audio issues on the MAX app no Roku where the sound gets hollow? Like the sound gets weird and I have to go out of the thing I'm viewing and come back in to fix it.

It's not your fault Robo, you didn't write the headline!
FWIW posting the link without comment made *me* at least assume your post was in line with 'oh my god this is an outrage! They're DELETING 12 MAJOR MOVIES!!1'
rather than, 'here's what's leaving HBO in august'

There are a ton of movies getting removed (and a ton getting added), they just picked 12 of them.

I don't know why they'd remove the Venture bros. christmas movie but ok.

I think they're removing all of Venture Bros, not just the Christmas special. At least, on my Prime Max subscription, each season says it's leaving in 12 days.

Dang, there was that one screenshot someone posted with the old HBO Max logo that said they were leaving but I was hoping it was a hoax. Why? Ugh.

edited to add:
Wait screenrant said they reached out to Max and they denied it was leaving in August:
https://screenrant.com/venture-bros-...ckson-publick/

My app doesn't show a removal, so I hope it's not true.

Looks like Max will simulcast live sports on the service this Fall. MLB, NBA, NHL and NCAA

Seems like a paid tier service mainly with sports airing on TBS and TNT (and I guess Bleacher Report). I wonder if AEW will get included. Depending on price, seems like a good option for cord cutters but if you already have those channels, maybe not.

Considering NBA on TNT (and AEW) are one of the primary reasons I still have cable though...

Re: Max Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

The CNBC article doesn't confirm a upcharge yet, but it's probably likely. Sports is really expensive and they just can't give it away at the current price tier, especially for cord cutters.

I might be interested in this depending on the price and commitments. Would like to get MLB and NBA playoffs.

Wouldn't want my normal Max subscription to go up if I didn't get these.

Re: Max Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

Considering they bent over backwards to allow the Discovery+ folks to keep a cheaper subscription even when the services were combined, I'd think they'd want to allow the Max subscribers to have a choice as well (because sure the price would go way up for everyone otherwise). I guess we'll see.
