‘Westworld’ And Other Cancelled HBO Max Shows Are Coming To Free Streaming Services!
Westworld and Raised By Wolves were removed as HBO Max did some spring cleaning in preparation for the new year. The parent company of these shows, Warner Bros. Discovery, has stated that these programs will still be accessible via free streaming platforms including The Roku Channel and Amazon’s FreeVee app.
Despite not needing a monthly fee, these streaming services will play advertisements in between select episodes (just think of YouTube). You get to watch your favorite episodes without having to fork over the required S$14.35 minimum per month for HBO Max, which may be a minor inconvenience to some.
The abrupt tidal wave of HBO canceled shows Max is a part of the extensive cost-cutting strategy that Warner Bros. Discovery has been implementing over the past three months. This sudden austerity coincides with the merging of Warner Bros. with Discovery and the appointment of David Zaslav as CEO.
With the appointment of new studio heads James Gunn (The Suicide Squad, The Guardians of the Galaxy) and Peter Safran (Aquaman, The Nun), the removal of Henry Cavill (The Man of Steel, The Witcher) as the Man of Steel, and the shelving of the finished Batgirl movie, fans of the DC Universe have not received the new CEO well.
The shows that have been cut from the original list and have been confirmed to return are Westworld, The Nevers, Raised by Wolves, FBoy Island, Legendary, Finding Magic Mike, Head of the Class, and The Time Traveler’s Wife. It is unclear which streaming services will be chosen.
