Peace Maker, Euphoria, The Sopranos, Game Of Thrones, and Sesame Street. One of these things is not like the other. And yet on a platform known for premium adult-leaning entertainment, it’s Sesame Street that brings in the biggest numbers on HBO Max. Sesame Street was the number one most in-demand show on the platform at 39.9%. While HBO Max shows like Titans and Doom Patrol are also right at the top of the listing
Most people probably don’t think of Sesame Street in relation with HBO, but when HBO Max began its rollout, the popular children’s educational series was part of its lineup meriting it an entire hub within the app’s interface. Children’s content is actually proven to be a big winner in the streaming world whether it be via premium streaming services or free ones. Not to say that its more mature content is failing. 8 the top 10 shows on the platform are full of guts, skin and gore.
HBO Max is seeing success in its second year with both its full premium service and ad-supported discounted tier.
