Cathay Pacific is premiering the HBO Max branded channel January 1, becoming the first airline in Asia Pacific to introduce the programming to its seatback inflight entertainment.

More than 200 hours of content in the first three months will be in every seat. The HBO Max library includes award-winning recent hits such as the first three seasons of Succession, as well as The White Lotus, The Undoing and Mare of Easttown, along with original series such as Friends: The Reunion, Hacks, Gossip Girl (2021) and The Flight Attendant, along with all-time classics including Sex and the City, The Sopranos, The Wire, Game of Thrones, Band of Brothers and much more.

“To be the first in Asia to launch the HBO Max brand, not just onboard flights but anywhere is exceptional. It’s a great example of an airline and streaming service working together to bring an unprecedented entertainment experience to passengers and we hope our customers find their next new binge-worthy show on Cathay Pacific,” said General Manager Customer Experience and Design Vivian Lo.

The HBO Max partnership also includes the Warner Bros. movie library with new releases such as Space Jam, Suicide Squad and Dune. Overall, in the next year the airline plans to add over 300 hours of HBO Max content adding to the vast array of movies, TV shows, music, podcasts, live news, digital magazines and games currently available.
