HBO MAX Launches on My Birthday, That's Kind of Neat
will be launching on May 27th, 2020. That is the day of my birthday, and while I don't make a huge deal out of it, I get tickled anytime I see it as the date of some big event. It allows to me to do dumb jokes like, "They chose May 27th in honor of my birthday to launch HBO MAX!" I don't think we will get it, as we just have HBO Now (the current iteration before MAX launches) for a few weeks so that we can watch season 3 of, "Westworld," and then are going to cancel the subscription before it renews for a second month. I just am getting tired of there being so many streaming services to the point where things are absurdly fragmented--"We watch this show on this service, another show on the other service, then log on to something else too!" Still, even if I'm exhausted with new streaming services constantly emerging I am a bit amused to see HBO MAX will kick-off on my birthday.
