AT&T Time Warner's upcoming SVOD service, HBO Max, has inked an exclusive deal with BBC America to stream the 11th season of Doctor Who.

dr who 3 august 2019The season wrapped in December and featured the 13th Doctor and the first female in the role, played by Jodie Whittaker. Access in the US to recent Doctor Who series has been limited to traditional pay-TV subscriptions that include BBC America, so the deal marks a milestone for the series.

HBO Max's deal with BBC America will also include every previous Doctor Who episode since 2005, and "future seasons after they air on BBC America."

Last week, WarnerMedia filled out the executive team for its upcoming HBO Max streaming service, scheduled to launch next year.

HBO Max will offer programming from the full WarnerMedia portfolio, including HBO, Warner Bros, New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth and Looney Tunes. It will also have the rights to classic sitcom Friends when it launches, which means the show’s tenure will end on Netflix.

It will also feature originals, such as a sequel to former CW series “Gossip Girl.”
