HBO Max’s library of HBO shows is shrinking: a number of past pay-per-view series from the host, including the Martin Scorsese-produced rock ‘n’ roll drama. Vinyl and Jennifer Garner comedy Campsitehave been removed from the streaming service.
With Vinyl and CampsiteHBO Max is no longer producing the Kathryn Hahn miniseries Mrs. FletcherComedy thriller by Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson run and Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter’s family drama Here and now. By the way, At Home with Amy Sedaris, which ran for three seasons on another Warner Bros. Discovery’s outlet truTV has also disappeared from the streaming service. (Vulture first noticed the disappearance of the wires.)
HBO Max has not officially commented on the removals, but a source tells TVLine that titles from the library just come in and out all the time across all platforms. (The HBO shows above are also still available to cable subscribers.) The streamer’s Twitter support channel is responding to user complaints saying: “As we work to bring HBO Max and Discovery+ together, we’re making some changes to our service. Part of this process involves removing selected content.
The news comes amid rumors of a possible combination of HBO Max and Discovery+ streaming services after newly merged parent company Warner Bros. Discovery’s first earnings reports. Earlier this week, the DC Comics movie Bat girl was deleted by HBO Max, despite being shot and done in post-production. Streaming too removed a number of movies that debuted on HBO Maxincluding Witches, Super intelligence and Moonshot.
