Warner Bros. Discovery halted the planned launch of its streaming service HBO Max in India due to global cost-cutting measures. In addition, the global entertainment conglomerate is working on a merger of its two streaming services, Discovery+ and HBO Max, in existing markets.
According to an Economic Times report, there is currently no word on when the service will be launched in India. As a result, Saugata Mukherjee, India content head, HBO Max, who joined the organisation last year, has also left. The content team began working on a few projects because the initial plan was to launch the service in India within 1-2 years. The only information available to the team at this time is that it will not launch until at least the end of 2024, according to the report, which cited a senior official.
