WarnerMedia International has appointed Canal+ executive Vera Peltekian as VP and commissioning editor of original production for France. Based in Paris, Vera will commission original programming for HBO Max. Because of her connections at Canal+, this could possibly be a way to persuade Canal+ to exit the OCS partnership (and also possibly and more importantly Orange), so HBO Max can launch early in France

The service has now arrived in Spain and in the Nordic regions as it launched there last Tuesday.

I don't know about other Nordic countries but in Finland who subscribe this month can get a cheap deal of 4.49 euros a month. The deal isn't going to end. I for example subscribed to the service and I have to pay this much only. Some people have been critical with it but I like this.

Can you please tell us if Samurai Jack season 5 and Young Justice season 3 and 4 are available on HBO Max Nordic? I would love to know.

Samurai Jack S5 yes, Young Justice no.
Thank you :) I have another question: is HBO Max Nordic available in Spanish? Can you watch the programs / put the settings in Spanish?

If HBO Max ever comes to Belgium, I would totally pay for it if I could watch everything in English, Dutch, French and Swedish. So I really hope the languages will be somewhat unified like on Netflix and Disney+.

Once HBO Max arrives in the UK during this decade, I really hope that they don't follow what the US version has done as in removing selected content on a rotating basis.

I can't see how HBO Max elsewhere would be any different, they also want to make money from electronic sell-through and physical home video so they don't want to make HBO Max too perfect. Also adding/removing/readding content is a marketing strategy to create an illusion that a load of new content is added each month.

I understand that though the reason why I made that post was due to the fact that there are people who are getting tired of it as it's not just HBO Max that does it since other studio-owned streaming services do it too like Disney+, Peacock and Paramount+ but fair enough.

I guess 4Kids Entertainment skipped Tokyo Mew Mew's second half due to its darker and edgier content or the poor ratings of the first half.
Gonna be honest with you all: I don't feel safe living in this country right now.
I love my Nintendo Switch I got back in 2018, I've played an awful lot since I got it. I've played Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Legends Arceus and many more wonderful Nintendo titles over the years of when I got it. I've been a Nintendo fan since I got my first console purchase, The Nintendo GameCube, back in 2002.

I predict that the COVID-19 pandemic will end permanently by 2023.
I wonder why Mario Party 6 was the poorest selling MP Title, and the only one of the four Gamecube MP games not to break 2 million copies? What's surprising is Mario Party 7 sold better, despite being from the dying days of the GC. Did the microphone initially put people off (or raise the price)? Did Mario Party 7 get a boost from the early days of the Wii?
