Discovery+ and HBO Max Will Combine Into One Streamer Following Pending Merger

The platforms will consolidate rather than be offered as a bundle, Discovery CFO confirms

After the WarnerMedia and Discovery merger is finalized, the company’s two major streaming services, HBO Max and Discovery+, will be combined into a single streamer—eventually.

With the pending merger of WarnerMedia and Discovery looming as early as next month, Discovery CFO Gunnar Wiedenfels—who will also serve as CFO for the combined Warner Bros. Discovery—confirmed Monday morning that Discovery+ and HBO Max will be consolidated into one service, according to multiple reports.

Discovery is preparing to offer both ad-free and ad-lite products for the future streamer.
