In order to offer those 10,000 hours of content to its subscribers, the streaming service will include titles from HBO, Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes, and more.

Pricing details for the service have not yet been revealed, although Disney recently said its streaming offering would come in at $7 month - around half the price of a similar Netflix subscription.

"Friends", a TV hit in the 1990s, was the second-most-watched show on Netflix in the United States when measured by minutes streamed, according to Nielsen data for 2018.

The HBO Max streaming service is scheduled to launch in spring 2020.

NBC and HBO aren't the only new streaming players coming onto the scene. "Thanks for the memories, gang", the Netflix's post read. And now it is expected to get a launch on 2020 spring.

"HBO's world-class programming leads the way, the quality of which will be the guiding principle for our new array of Max Originals, our exciting acquisitions, and the very best of the Warner Bros. libraries". AT&T-owned WarnerMedia, which unveiled its management team in March, also already offers standalone service HBO Now, which costs $15 in the USA and is available from multiple cable operators. "Friends" was originally set to leave Netflix at the beginning of 2019, but an Internet uproar encouraged Netflix to cut a $100 million deal to keep the Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey on the service for another year. As far as the movies are concerned, Reese Witherspoon and "Riverdale" executive producer Greg Berlanti will be working on new projects for the streaming service.

HBO Max will also be developing new original series of its own, which we have listed in the gallery below.
