Aug 4 (Reuters) - Warner Bros. Discovery Inc (WBD.O) said on Thursday it would merge the HBO Max streaming service with Discovery+ as a single offering, combining WarnerMedia's dramas, comedies and movies with Discovery's reality shows.

"With respect to streaming, our main priority right now is launching an integrated SVOD service," said Chief Executive Officer David Zaslav.


SVOD is "subscription video on demand" and/or "streaming video on demand".

‘Batman: Caped Crusader’ Animated Series from Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves Not Moving Forward at HBO Max, Will Be Shopped Elsewhere

HBO Max has canceled six upcoming animated series, including “Batman: Caped Crusader,” Variety has learned. The project was ordered to series in May 2021 with Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves attached to executive produce.

“Batman: Caped Crusader” was meant to build on “Batman: The Animated Series,” which was co-created by Timm and aired on Fox Kids for 85 episodes from 1992-1995.

The decision not to release these series on HBO Max is part of a larger trend as parent company Warner Bros. Discovery largely divests from kids and family content.

Parang wrong move. You need kids who will turn into adult fans with buying power.

The company announced the name change at a press event Wednesday, where it also revealed a slate of upcoming projects.
