Thank the maker! While it does kind of suck that we’re getting so many different streaming services, one positive does seem to be that some networks are sort of folding into their parent company. Most of Disney’s content across all platforms has headed to Disney+, and similarly, most of WarnerMedia’s content is headed to HBO Max. Now, this seems to have taken effect on Audience Network.
What is Audience Network, you may ask? Well, it’s a network owned by AT&T, which in turn, owns WarnerMedia. According to Variety, it will essentially cease operations and turn into a preview channel for HBO Max, which confirms a sort of consolidation over there.
“We will begin to transition Audience Network from its current approach to support AT&T’s broader original content and marketing focus on the upcoming HBO Max service,” said Daniel York, chief content officer of AT&T Consumer. “I am proud and grateful to the team at Audience for their many successes over the years, creating unique, fresh and provocative content along with our great studio partners. 20 years ago we were the first pay TV provider to differentiate our content offering with the best exclusive original content, and the team truly brought to life the network vision: Always Original, Never Ordinary.”
So, what of its four original shows, including Mr. Mercedes? Rumor has it they will be folded into HBO Max, giving viewers yet ANOTHER reason to jump on board this one. I don’t know about you guys, but HBO Max is quickly becoming perhaps the most bang-for-your-buck streaming service we’ll be getting in the near future.
