WarnerMedia, the new name for the company that encompasses DC, Warner Bros, Turner, and HBO, already has the DC-based streaming service DC Universe, but that's too narrow. The company has announced plans for another streaming service to launch in 2019. The service will be anchored on HBO's offerings including Game of Thrones and Westworld.
"Today we announced plans to launch a new direct-to-consumer streaming service in the fourth quarter of 2019. This is another benefit of the AT&T/Time Warner merger, and we are committed to launching a compelling and competitive product that will serve as a complement to our existing businesses and help us to expand our reach by offering a new choice for entertainment with the WarnerMedia collection of films, television series, libraries, documentaries and animation loved by consumers around the world. We expect to create such a compelling product that it will help distributors increase consumer penetration of their current packages and help us successfully reach more customers."
