Combining movies and sports might not be quite as innovative as mixing peanut butter and chocolate together — thank you, Reese’s — but Max is less than a month away from launching a brand-new tier. Beginning on Thursday, October 5, a Bleacher Report-branded sports option will be available as an add-on to the streaming service. The CEO and President of Global Streaming and Games, JB Perrette, addressed why the new sports service is packaged as an add-on rather than a standalone service. Perrette said in an interview with Deadline:
Max subscribers will soon be able to watch the MLB, NBA, NHL and even March Madness on the streaming service.
