HBO Max subscribers trying to watch a good, wholesome, ‘Tom and Jerry’ movie instead found themselves with an early viewing of the highly-anticipated rated-R film, Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
A glitch made the film available 10 days early.
HBO Max confirmed the accidental leak, saying the movie was “temporarily available” and “the error was addressed within minutes.”
Still, a lot of people took to social media to share that they got to watch the film early.
While HBO Max says the error was fixed “within minutes,” some people say they were able to watch about an hour of the film before the feed was cut.
The question is — was this a real ‘glitch’ or some type of guerrilla PR? Either way, people are talking about it.
