HBO Max has partnered with Snapchat to bring the series ’full-length episodes to the social media platform. The HBO Max Mini allows users to stream pilots of selected series to up to 63 other Snapchatter.
The feature was announced today and offered via Mini, which launched at the end of last year and hosts third-party application experiences within Snapchat. The mini allows users to do anything from meditating with Headspace to buying movie tickets with friends through Atom. And now HBO Max Minis allows anyone, through Snapchat, to watch more than ten series of complete episodes of the streaming service for free, including pilots Lovecraft land and Throne game. In synchronized playback, all viewers of the title can stream the same title together.
Snapchat users can access HBO Max episodes by searching or clicking on the rocket icon in the chat. Once the HBO Max Mini is up and running, users need to check their date of birth, which filters out streaming episodes. complete list of episodes age-restricted streaming are as follows:
- Betty (season 2, section 1)
- The throne game
- Sukut + ions
- Gossip Girl (2021)
- Looney tunes
- Love life
- Lovecraft land
- Selena + chef
- A peaceful world
Up to 64 users can join an HBO Max Mini session via a shared chat link or by clicking on a shared label, and users can chat and post reactions during title streaming. The pilot episodes of the above series can also be streamed to users who have not subscribed to HBO Max. But users 18 and older will be asked to subscribe to HBO Max to continue streaming the series once the pilot period is over.
See the festivities are even more popular feature triggered by large streaming devices. For example, Apple publishes FaceTime integration later this year to support group streaming using SharePlay, but many streams, such as Prime Video, Hulu, and Disney Plus, have their own in-app group viewing tools. The arrival of the HBO Max on the Mini is the first large streaming device to support entire episodes without streaming without ever leaving Snapchat.
“People love coming together to watch their favorite HBO Max shows and talk about what’s going on,” Sarah Lyons, director of global product management at HBO Max’s DTC, said in a statement. “Our partnership with Snapchat is another step toward fulfilling hope for a human connection and providing our fans with opportunities to show together by deepening their emotional relationship with the brand.”
