Did Amazon Prime Video Drop HBO?

Did Amazon Prime drop HBO Max?

It’s been just over a year since Amazon Prime Video and HBO Max announced their partnership. At the time, it was seen as a big win for HBO Max, which was gearing up to launch as a direct-to-consumer streaming service. The two companies promised to collaborate on marketing and distribution, with HBO Max content appearing on Prime Video and vice versa.

But a recent report from The Information suggests that the partnership may not be as rosy as it seems. According to the report, Amazon Prime Video has been reducing the amount of HBO Max content it airs, while HBO Max has been scaling back its distribution of Prime Video content.

The report doesn’t give a reason for the tension between the two companies, but it’s possible that Amazon is unhappy with how much money HBO Max is making. HBO Max is expected to be a major player in the streaming market, and it may be cutting into Amazon Prime Video’s profits.

So what does this mean for Amazon Prime and HBO Max? It’s hard to say. The two companies have been tight-lipped about their partnership, and they’ve yet to release any official statements.

But one thing is clear: the relationship between Amazon Prime and HBO Max is no longer what it once was.

Where did my HBO Go on Amazon Prime?

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber, you may have noticed that HBO Go is no longer one of the channels you can watch. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. HBO Go was removed from Amazon Prime on January 1, 2018.

So what happened?

According to Amazon, HBO pulled its content from Amazon Prime in order to “more fully capitalize on the exclusive programming available on its own streaming service.”

In other words, HBO doesn’t want people to subscribe to HBO Go and Amazon Prime at the same time.

This isn’t the first time that HBO has pulled its content from Amazon Prime. The network did the same thing back in 2015.

At the time, Amazon Prime subscribers were able to watch older seasons of HBO shows like “The Sopranos” and “The Wire.” But that’s no longer the case.

As of right now, the only way to watch HBO shows on Amazon Prime is to buy them individually.

This may not be a big deal for some people, but it’s definitely a bummer for Amazon Prime subscribers who were using HBO Go as a way to watch their favorite shows.

So what can you do?

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber who wants to watch HBO shows, you have a few options.

You can either:

1. Subscribe to HBO Now

2. Buy an HBO subscription through a cable provider

3. Buy individual episodes or seasons of HBO shows on Amazon

Personally, I think option #1 is the best option. HBO Now is a standalone streaming service that costs $14.99 per month.

It’s a little more expensive than Amazon Prime, but it’s worth it if you want to watch HBO shows without having to subscribe to cable.

If you’re not sure whether or not HBO Now is right for you, I suggest trying out the free trial. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

So what do you think?

Are you an Amazon Prime subscriber who’s upset that HBO Go is no longer available? Or are you someone who’s thinking about subscribing to HBO Now? Let me know in the comments below.
