AT&T hasn't announced many new HBO Max deals with its existing traditional HBO distributors.

Max has scored its first distribution deal through a new agreement with Google's YouTube TV, which will carry the streaming service when it launches in May.

The new agreement will also allow YouTube TV to continue to carry the WarnerMedia networks TBS, TNT, truTV, CNN, HLN, Turner Classic Movies, Adult Swim and Cartoon Network, which have been available to YouTube TV since 2018.

"Our commitment at YouTube TV is to deliver TV to our members how and when they want it", said Lori Conkling, global head of partnerships at YouTube TV, in a statement. The platform will also house current and past HBO and Cinemax series like Game of Thrones, Westworld, The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Barry, Succession and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.

"Michael and his team have the breadth and depth of experience required in today's competitive marketplace to both land defining content and rewrite our rules for how content will move through all exhibition windows going forward", said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, and president, TBS, TNT and TruTV. The companies did not disclose how much the HBO add-on will cost.

Battleman will oversee content acquisition for the WarnerMedia Entertainment networks (HBO, Cinemax, TNT, TBS and truTV), including Pay 1 film deals for HBO and Cinemax; off-net series acquisitions for the basic-cable networks; and film library, worldwide and other specialty acquisitions across all networks. HBO Max will offer programming for everyone in the home, bundling the entire HBO service, a robust slate of new original series, key third-party licensed programs and movies, and fan favorites from across WarnerMedia's rich library. Membership comes with free unlimited cloud DVR storage space to record all your favorites, personalized watch recommendations, and a family plan with 6 accounts per household so the whole family can enjoy.
