AT&T-owned WarnerMedia on Tuesday revealed details about its own streaming service, which aims to win back customers from Netflix.
The service, called HBO Max, is set to launch in the spring of 2020 with the exclusive rights to HBO’s full library, Time Warner’s television classics such as Friends and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, as well as new films produced by Hollywood heavyweights Greg Berlanti and Reese Witherspoon.
这项名为HBO Max的服务将于2020年春季上线，它将具有以下内容的独家流媒体播放权：HBO的悉数片库，《老友记》、《新鲜王子妙事多》(The Fresh Prince of Bel Air)等时代华纳(Time Warner)经典电视剧集，以及格雷格•伯兰蒂(Greg Berlanti)和瑞茜•威瑟斯彭(Reese Witherspoon)等好莱坞重量级人物制造的新片。
表明“独家的（新闻报道）”，英文解释为“If a newspaper, magazine, or broadcasting organization describes one of its reports as exclusive, they mean it is a special report that does not appear in any other publication or on any other channel.”举个：
He told the magazine in an exclusive interview: "All my problems stem from drinking."
表明“极具影响力的人（或安排）”，英文解释为“If you refer to a person or organization as a heavyweight, you mean that they have a lot of influence, experience, and importance in a particular field, subject, or activity.”举个：
He was a political heavyweight.
After years of watching consumers shift their attention away from traditional television and towards Netflix, traditional media companies are fighting back. Walt Disney and AT&T have between them spent more than $150bn on megadeals to build up their arsenals of content, and are working to launch their own streaming services within the next year.
arsenal /ˈɑːsənəl/ 转义表明“兵器库，军火库”，英文解释为“a building where weapons are stored”，也能够指“储藏的大批兵器”（a large group of weapons that someone has），如：an arsenal of guns 大批枪支；
此处意义为“（设备、办法等的）宝库，收藏”，英文解释为“the equipment, methods etc that someone can use to help them achieve something”，举个：
He has a whole arsenal of cameras.
Media companies must choose what content to restrict to their own streaming services, and what to keep available on platforms like Netflix where hundreds of millions of people might watch it. This will not only determine how valuable their streaming services might be — it will also directly impact revenues. MoffettNathanson analysts predict Disney's streaming push will slice revenues for its film studio and media networks units by $1.4bn in fiscal 2020.
push & pull
互联网相关用语，pull指的是“经过问询和查找在互联网上找到信息，获取信息”，英文解释为“to get information from the internet, after asking or searching for it”举个：
Companies should encourage customers to pull information from their website, thus putting the customer in control.
push表明“（互联网上）发送（信息）”，即推送，英文解释为“to send information over the internet without receiving a request for it first”。
As the streaming battle heats up, some fan favourites will be pulled from Netflix. Last month Comcast-owned NBCUniversal announced it had taken the rights back for The Office starting in 2021. The Office and Friends are the two most-watched programmes on Netflix, according to Nielsen.
Last year Netflix warned customers Friends could be taken down from its platform soon, sparking fury among fans. However Netflix struck a deal with AT&T to extend its rights to the sitcom for another year, paying nearly $100m for it.
strike a bargain/deal
表明“达成协议/买卖，拟定协议”，英文解释为“to agree to do something for someone if they do something for you”举个：

Netflix said in a tweet it was “sorry to see Friends go to Warner's streaming service at the beginning of 2020 (in The US)”.
