Max in France: which films and series on the new streaming platform?

The old HBO Max is finally arriving in France, with a rich catalog, which wants to highlight quality and will offer various original creations, which will be added to Friends, Harry Potter and other Game of Thrones.

Four years after the creation of HBO Max in the USA, and after its rebranding in just “Max“, the Warner Bros. Discovery streaming platform is finally arriving in France. A few days before its official launch, on June 11, the group today presented the broad outlines of the content that will be available in the French catalog at the start. The general idea is not to “to be a streaming platform among many others. We firmly believe that watching quality content can transform the entertainment experience. We are committed to carefully selecting each content“, assures the President of Warner Bros. Discovery Western Europe & Africa, Clément Schwebig. A way of saying that Max will focus on quality and not quantity. So what will we see?
