WarnerMedia finally confirmed that HBO Max will launch on May 27th. For months, the company has been promising the streaming service would be ready this May, but it hadn’t revealed a specific date.

When it arrives, HBO Max will deliver 10,000 hours of content, including a handful of launch day premieres. There’s Love Life, a comedy starring Anna Kendrick; On the Record, a Sundance documentary; Legendary, a series about an underground ballroom dance competition; Craftopia, hosted by YouTube’s LaurDIY; the new Looney Tunes Cartoons; and Sesame Workshop’s The Not Too Late Show.

We knew that HBO Max will include the entire HBO service, plus select Warner Bros. titles and originals. A few months ago, HBO Max announced that it was forming a production company dedicated to streaming films, and it has promised Friends, The Wire and a Theranos documentary.

HBO Max will cost $14.99 per month for people. It is a free upgrade for HBO Now subscribers, and AT&T customers will also get free access.
