HBO’s heritage of quality original content combined with the deep WarnerMedia catalog makes HBO Max one of the most popular streaming services in America. But unlike Netflix, the content in HBO Max’s catalog isn’t permanent. It comes and goes as WarnerMedia licenses content to other streaming services. Keeping up with that kind of moving target requires resources that most developers don’t have. An HBO Max API would let apps and websites provide streaming-aware features.
Is there an HBO Max API?
Although HBO Max has APIs for internal development, it does not make APIs available to outside developers. That’s understandable. Launching HBO Max was not a trivial project. WarnerMedia had to stitch it together from a web of existing licensing deals, streaming services and cable distribution contracts. Many of these deals are the reason why content comes and goes from the HBO Max catalog.
Developers who need streaming-aware features faced an unappetizing dilemma. Without an HBO Max API, the only way to get those features would be to compile their own database of content — and maintain that database for years. We decided there was a better way which is why we created a Developer Portal at Flixed.
