At the same time that the channel continues its endeavor to offer productions with good and daring stories and if it continues to be a place where an award-winning and well-known cast from Hollywood wants to work, the Brazilian branch is still very passive in relation to the news that move the entertainment industry on the channel.

At an event in São Paulo, in the traditional UpFront, the channel, in addition to diverting the conversation about the (non) arrival of HBOMax, was still reluctant to present its new content to the present press, most of which was mentioned had already been disclosed. other opportunities throughout the year.

And not that the channel has little to offer in 2020, next year Nicole Kidman, Pheobe Waller-Bridge, Issa Rae, Donald Sutherland, Hugh Laurie, Jason Bateman and Mark Ruffalo are some of the talents that will star in titles that the channel will offer in its linear programming, and in its streaming service, HBOGo.

About productions called Max Originals, who are going to show up at HBO Max in the USA, could even get licensed in Brazil, but channel executives already say that we should not wait for this content at HBO Brasil. They will be completely different companies, even if they carry the name HBO.

Speaking of name, one of the few news announced was that the MAX channels will disappear (due to the name going to the streaming service in Latin America), and will migrate to the HBO brand.

The MAX PRIME channel will be HBO EXTREME, a channel dedicated to titles focused on action and adrenaline. MAX UP becomes HBO POP, with productions aimed at the world of fantasy, comedies and novels.
