Yes, we’ve already got a streaming service for Disney, DC Comics, etc., so of course that means that WarnerMedia is launching their own now, too.
John Stankey, WarnerMedia CEO, announced today that the company will develop and launch their own streaming service company by the end of 2019.
It will reportedly be anchored by HBO offerings, such as Game of Thrones and Westworld.
Stankey’s official statement reads:
“Today we announced plans to launch a new direct-to-consumer streaming service in the fourth quarter of 2019. This is another benefit of the AT&T/Time Warner merger, and we are committed to launching a compelling and competitive product that will serve as a complement to our existing businesses and help us to expand our reach by offering a new choice for entertainment with the WarnerMedia collection of films, television series, libraries, documentaries and animation loved by consumers around the world. We expect to create such a compelling product that it will help distributors increase consumer penetration of their current packages and help us successfully reach more customers.”
We’ll let you know once we learn more about this additional streaming service.
