HBO Max Reaches 30 Originals, Adds Comedy Central Mainstays Like ‘Chappelle’s Show’, ‘Inside Amy Schumer’

In a keynote session Monday at NATPE’s Streaming Plus virtual conference, WarnerMedia’s Michael Quigley pushed back on the perception that HBO Max has been a bit light on original content.

“There was some chatter about ‘only’ six originals at launch,” the EVP of content acquisitions said. “I think what’s been lost is that since that time, we’ve steadily introduced new shows, new movies, new content to the platform over the course of the summer. We wanted to create the feeling among consumers that each week they’re going to find something new.”

There are now 30 original titles on HBO Max, which launched May 27, and there will be 36 by the end of September, Quigley said. The service offers 10,000 hours of overall programming, which includes the same HBO offering available via pay-tv and a separate stand-alone streaming service, plus titles from Warner Bros, Adult Swim, Turner Classic and other brands.
