Previously, HBO had expressed a desire to keep the majority of its shows out of syndication and off of competing streaming platforms. In recent years, the company’s management structure has changed and the network’s parent company, Warner Bros., has pivoted as well. As a result, the network’s content strategy changed in several ways. Just last year, the network’s streaming platform, HBO Max, let go of several shows, including Love Life. More recently, shows like Insecure and Westworld have been moved out for syndication on platforms like Roku, OWN and Tubi. Moving forward, Max, formerly HBO Max, will look to compete with the likes of Netflix, Prime Video and Hulu as it merges Discovery and Warner Bros. content into a platform that can be geared toward children and families.
