HBO Max brings original productions to halt in Turkey along with the Netherlands, Central Europe and Nordics, to cut costs

Due to latest statements of Warner Bros Discovery spokesperson, it has been confirmed that HBO Max cancelled all of its productions in Turkey, the Netherlands, Central Europe and Nordics.

According to Variety’s coverage, the succeeding platform restructred its SVOD streaming priorities and will not produce originals in Turkey, the Netherlands, Central Europe and Nordics (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland) for HBO Max.

The Warner Bros Discovery spokesperson declares that the platform carries its interest in these territories and the company will keep on producing local content for Discovery’s linear channels. The localised content from HBO Max’s library will also be removed, to be licenced to other platforms in these territories.

Despite succeeding globally, the company aims to lower costs due to adverse economic developments across the world.
