The lean slicing of everything Warner continues in the wake of their new owners really getting involved. HBO Max is next as they prepare the streamer to be merged with Discovery+ to create a single platform.

In what may, or may not be both a quality and cost play, more content is being stripped away from HBO Max. This latest round of disappearances includes cartoons, original programming and bought in shows.


They have already pulled a number of movies as well as original live-action series like Mrs. Fletcher and Camping. Movies already pulled include the Anne Hathaway films The Witches and Locked Down, the Melissa McCarthy comedy Superintelligence, the Seth Rogen comedy An American Pickle, the Dylan Sprouse sci-fi romance Moonshot and the Sundance drama Charm City Kings. They have issued a generic statement about their approach.

“As we work toward bringing our content catalogs together under one platform, we will be making changes to the content offering available on both HBO Max and discovery+. That will include the removal of some content from both platforms.”

The following titles will vanish by the end of this week, like a former ally of Stalin:

Personally we at Last Movie Outpost think this represents a great opportunity, with all this space opening up, for HBO Max to start carrying the kind of excellent content we create on our YouTube channel. For some reason David Zaslav is not returning our calls.
