2024 is going to be a huge year for Warner Bros Discovery and streaming, with Max successfully launched in the U.S. in 2023 and further strengthened with the addition of live sports and news. Next, Max is set to roll out in LATAM, EMEA and APAC starting this year.

This session – with Leah Hooper Rosa, SVP, Head of Streaming EMEA, at WBD and Lydia Fairfax, MD and Founder of Triple Crown Consulting – gave a status update on Max and the processes behind the EMEA launches with just months to go, discussed how streaming fits into WBD’s broader media and content ecosystem, and explored the role of strategic partnerships, innovation, and experimentation to drive further growth.
