HBO Max to Air Episodes of ‘Titans,’ ‘Flight Attendant’ on TNT, TBS, truTV Over Thanksgiving

TNT, TBS, and truTV are set to air blocks of HBO Max programming over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The first episodes of the DC series “Titans” and the new Kaley Cuoco series “The Flight Attendant” will both air during the “Thanksgiving to the HBO Max” block, which will run from Nov. 26-29 on each network. The DC films “Aquaman,” “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and “Wonder Woman” will also air, with “Aquaman” making its network premiere. Elsewhere, Melissa McCarthy will offer a sneak peek of her HBO Max original film “Superintelligence.”

For “The Flight Attendant,” Cuoco will host a curated marathon of “Big Bang Theory” episodes leading up to the airing of the new show’s pilot. Throughout each day, QR codes will appear on-screen along with network and show specific URLs giving viewers access to subscribe for a free 7-day trial of HBO Max.

‘”Thanksgiving to the HBO Max’ is an excellent demonstration of the powerful synergies that are possible at WarnerMedia,” said Brett Weitz, general manager of TNT, TBS and truTV. “With so many of us spending time in front of the television after Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers on top of leftovers, it’s wonderful that we get to offer free trials of HBO Max and present some of their incredible originals to the audience of our three linear networks. This type of partnership speaks to the strength our core networks continue to have within WarnerMedia’s overall business.”

The move comes as media companies are shifting their priorities to emphasize digital and streaming as the so-called Streaming Wars heat up. WarnerMedia and parent company AT&T previously shuttered the linear network Audience earlier this year, turning it into a barker channel in the lead up to the HBO Max launch.
