Streaming is all the rage these days as more and more studios branch out into direct-to-consumer releases. It’s become a hot spot for shared universes like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, and now the DCEU. So it comes as no surprise that the HBO Max has struck gold with Peacemaker which now happens to be the biggest streaming show today.
As of January 22nd, the series has become the most in-demand streaming series in the world, reportedly 69.5 times more in demand than most series. The series has now surpassed both the second season and first season of The Witcher and Book of Boba Fett respectively.
It is being reported that in 2021, demand for original programming on HBO Max grew a whopping 39.2% compared to Netflix’s 10.3%. Max has also continued to exceed subscription expectations as it closed out the year 2021 with 73.8 million subscribers.
HBO Max has recently branded itself “The Streaming Home of DC” as they continue to develop original content based on DC comics. HBO Max is developing quite a few DC original projects based on IPs such as Black Canary, the Green Lantern, and Justice League Dark characters. In addition to those in development, the service is already home to Titans, Doom Patrol, Young Justice, and Harley Quinn.
