Why is HBO Max offering this first episode?

By posting for free, on his YouTube channel, the first chapter of its fantasy saga, HBO Max is trying to attract new viewers and subscribers who are reluctant to take out a subscription or who don’t necessarily know the platform. For these reasons, the American giant regularly offers the first episodes of its cult series, directly on its official website.

But this time, its timing is clearly not at all innocent: Amazon Prime Video has just launched the most expensive series in history, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. A highly anticipated back-to-school event, which keeps all its promises after its first two episodes.

HBO Max seems relatively discreet for the moment on this free online release. No communication with great fanfare has been made and no message has been published on the various social networks of the platform, at the time of writing these lines.
