Warner Bros. Discovery rules out 2024 for the streaming service in Australia

Warner Bros. Discovery has ruled out 2024 for a standalone streaming service in Australia, despite a report this week in The Australian.

The report cited James Gibbons, president and managing director of Warner Bros Discovery in the western Pacific, of plans for a combined HBO Max and Discovery Plus streamer.

“We will be launching our new streaming service in the US this year,” Mr Gibbons said.

“The first task is to really combine these services and create an ‘about’ service that can appeal to a wide audience.

“After that, we will roll out this service in the Asia-Pacific region, including Australia, starting in the second half of 2024.”

Such plans would worry Foxtel, which recently announced a new sequel to HBO content but can’t rule out a non-exclusivity once Warner Bros. starts streaming locally.

However, the company has since clarified that it will not include Australia just yet while it launches in Asia Pacific in 2024.

A correction quoted today read: “It’s not in our plans for 2024.”
