Warner Bros. Discovery to Offer ‘Warner Pass’ Streaming Option in France

Looking to diversify consumer access in France to HBO, Turner, Warner Bros. and Discovery content, Warner Bros. Discovery is launching “Warner Pass” on Amazon Prime Channels — the e-commerce behemoth’s platform affording Prime members direct access to third-party streaming services.

The announcement follows last month’s move by WBD to reinstate HBO Max on Prime Channels in the U.S. after the platform’s departure during the WarnerMedia era.

Warner Pass will offer access to all HBO programming, in addition to 12 channels, including Warner TV, Eurosport, Discovery Channel, Cartoon Network and CNN, as well as their associated on-demand services. The offer will be available to Prime members via subscription beginning in March.

In addition to HBO series “Succession,” “Perry Mason,” “The Gilded Age,” “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty,” “Barry,” “Somebody Somewhere,” and upcoming new shows “True Detective: Night Country,” “The Idol” and “White House Plumbers,” Pass will offer subscribers access to the 2024 Paris Summer Olympic Games.

To help promote the service, Prime members in France will be able to stream episodes of new HBO series, “The Last of Us,” for free the day after their U.S. debut beginning Jan. 16.

“The launch … is great news for the French audience,” Pierre Branco, managing director for France, Benelux and Africa at Warner Bros. Discovery, said in a statement.
