Probably, but not any time soon. HBO are a network that distributes their own content in the US, while in the UK they have distribution deals for their content with other networks, likely covering almost all their content that's licensed for several years, including not yet released content. Odds are there's a veritable army of lawyers trying to regain the distribution rights for their content outside of the US in as many territories as possible, but until then they may simply not have enough work available to them to justify launching a platform.

Hopefully whoever has acquired the VOD rights to these movies here will be able to adopt a similar release structure to HBO in US, rather than having to wait for the theatrical window to end.

Indeed. Looking forward to Wonder Woman 1984 being available in 4K around the world on Christmas Day.

I started using Hulu after reading the reviews hulu customer service. This is really a very cool streaming service. My family and I often watch various movies and TV series there. I think it will be available in the UK but not soon. We will wait

I have Hulu and HBO Max. I love Hulu, so many great shows on there. HBO Max is great for movies and, of course, John Oliver.
