Currently, HBO Max is only available in the United States but viewers from other countries have been accessing the service via VPNs. In a YouTube teaser today, the streaming service announced it will be launching in Latin America in June.
The Latin America launch is just the beginning for HBO Max with the streaming service set to expand into Europe later this year, The Verge reports. The Nordics, Spain, Central Europe, and Portugal are believed to be the regions getting the HBO Max later this year.
The international debut in June will see HBO Max expand to 39 countries and territories across Latin America and the Caribbean, including Anguilla, Antigua, Argentina, Aruba, B.V.I., Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Montserrat, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
Meanwhile, the HBO Go app will be phased out by WarnerMedia and be replaced by a new HBO Max app. Customers with an existing subscription on the HBO Go will have their package transferred automatically to HBO Max.
