HBO Max adds Altice USA, Verizon, Cox and more to distribution list

And the company has made an announcement about greater access to the new service at launch.

Samsung, Sony and Verizon have joined AT&T, Apple, Charter, Google, Hulu and YouTube TV in offering HBO Max to their customers when the service launches May 27.

AT&T has committed to spending $4 billion on HBO Max over the next three years - including programming development and the costs of forgoing some licensing revenues in order to feature movies and TV content on HBO Max.

HBO, the premium TV channel, launched in 1972 and was available to pay-TV customers.

Altice USA will give all its existing Optimum and Suddenlink HBO and HBO Now subscribers immediate access to HBO Max.

So far, that includes series such as Rick and Morty, Doctor Who, South Park, Friends, and more, alongside original series and other content being produced specifically for HBO Max.

WarnerMedia, the parent company of HBO, has announced that HBO Max will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One with dedicated apps on both systems when the service launches. In addition, HBO Max will be available to smaller ops through an agreement with the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC). Those users will be able to download and purchase HBO Max directly.

"The launch of HBO Max is an important milestone for our company, and we're excited that these valued partners will be on board for the launch", said Rich Warren, president of WarnerMedia Distribution, in a statement.

Verizon will distribute HBO Max to customers through its Fios TV and Fios Internet services. With the upcoming launch of HBO Max later this month, those with a PS4 and Xbox One will have another option for streaming starting next week.
