Reliance’s broadcast venture Viacom18 has signed a deal with Warner Bros for JioCinema. As per the new multi-year agreement, JioCinema will be able to stream HBO, Max Originals and Warner Bros. Hollywood movies and shows.
This comes almost a month after Disney parted ways with streaming platform Hotstar. Earlier, users were able to stream shows like Succession from HBO, The Game of Thrones and more on Disney+ Hotstar.
But ever since Disney walked away from Hotstar, Indian binge-watchers had no place to consume HBO and other Hollywood content.
Now, however, JioCinema will bring all popular shows to the platform from next month. Talking about HBO, users will be able to watch shows like House of the Dragon, The Last of Us, Succession and The White Lotus.
JioCinema users will also get access to returning seasons of True Detective: Night Country, Euphoria, Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty and Perry Manson.
HBO original series including The Idol, White House Plumbers, The Sympathizer and The Regime will also be added. In addition, documentaries such as Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, Big Little Lies, Chernobyl and Veep will appear on the platform.
As for Max Originals, And Just Like That…, Peacemaker, The Flight Attendant, Dune: The Sisterhood, The Penguin, and Duster will be built on the ape.
Warner Bros. television series and East New York, Gotham Knights, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and DC Universe movies will also be available. Finally, children’s shows such as Dexter’s Laboratory and Tom and Jerry Kids are also coming to the platform.
“Warner Bros. Discovery’s brands are incredibly popular across India, and we are delighted to partner with Viacom18 to bring our premium HBO, Max Originals and Warner Bros. content to local fans. This new tie-up demonstrates our commitment to South Asia as we look to entertain audiences across more platforms, and further strengthen the scale of our regional business overall,” said Clement Schwebig, President, India, South East Asia and Korea, said Warner Bros.
