It is frustrating when you are looking forward to the release of a show, only to realise that it will be available on foreign sites or apps. However, in recent years, many shows like Mare of Easttown and Only Murders in the Building found their way to the Indian viewers via OTT, despite being released on platforms that were not accessible from India.
HBO Max is one such OTT platform that is not accessible in India, however, the OTT service will be providing 11 originals and 10 features to exclusively stream on Amazon Prime Video India around July and August. These HBO Max shows will include crime dramas, young adult shows along with superhero series among others. The cast of these upcoming shows is equally exciting- led by actors like Kaley Cuoco, John Cena, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and more.
