The online streaming community is merging under a huge umbrella and not just with Disney but a slew of other brands are joining the fray. The HBO Max community may no longer be able to access some of their favorite shows. It has been confirmed that 36 shows will be removed from the service much to the dismay of many who might have followed them in the past.
While collecting your own Bluray discs and possibly ripping them for a private collection is what any ardent person would do, most people rely on streaming platforms which isn’t the most advisable thing to do. The HBO Max and Discovery+ merger previously led to a huge number of layoffs, now it is time to make things uncomfortable for the viewers.
The entire list is yet to be revealed but some instant hits include The Not Too Late Show with Elmo which is a spin off inspired by the Sesame Street show. Most people would argue that many of these shows may not have such a fan base but for those who actually watch it, it always matters. After all, if Game of Thrones would be completely removed from HBO, it would bother millions of fans who simply love to watch it over and over at regular intervals.
Another confirmed title would be My Dinner with Herve starring Peter Dinklage in the lead and Cartoon Network collections which had previous tie up with the company. The idea is to merge all the media content under one platform but is unclear why they would remove 36 shows from both platforms. From a financial standpoint, Warner Bros owned Discovery claims they would bring in $3 billion savings because of this inevitable merger.
Netflix is one of the premium subscription services which is struggling real hard to stay afloat as shows are more expensive to make than the income they bring in. It is to be witnessed as to how the future will be as all companies are being merged but with people losing access to their favorite shows, the offline media might once again pick pace in the next few years.
