They’ve already confirmed that anime that arrive to HBO Max won’t be exclusive to their streaming service, and can be available to watch on their site..
HBO Max is also streaming the “entire Studio Ghibli film library” of 21 feature films from GKIDS. This deal marks the first time ever that Studio Ghibli films are streaming on a platform. You can expect Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Ponyo, Castle in the Sky, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, and other films to release during launch.
Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Rooster Teeth are also offering content to the service.
The HBO Max streaming service costs $14.99 US dollars per month. The service will eventually offer about 10,000 hours of content. It features content from other WarnerMedia brands, such as Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, and Looney Tunes.
WarnerMedia announced a reorganization of its divisions in March of 2019 that brought many of its subsidiaries and brands—including Otter Media (Ellation, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, VRV), Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Boomerang — into a single “Global Kids & Young Adults” unit.
