So quick questions.
Will the episodes (New&old) be on HBO GO or HBO Now?
And will classic episodes be released when the season premiere happens? Like at the same time?

According to HBO's site:

We aim to make Sesame Street and other new kids’ programming available on HBO GO and HBO NOW at about the same time it airs on HBO. Along with new seasons, you'll find the four most recent seasons of Sesame on air and on HBO GO and HBO NOW, as well as classic episodes from the show’s 40-year history.

Sesame Street and new kids’ programming are all part of your HBO, HBO GO or HBO NOW subscription.
The new episodes are added to the service the day after their first airing (they air Saturday, go online Sunday)

Does anyone else see any sort of hint of any other human characters besides Chris, Alan, and Nina? In every press shot for the season, not to mention behind-the-scenes shots and the Macy's Parade, they are the only ones to be found. Not even former heavy-hitters like Mando and Leela are featured anywhere. And it's not like we can trust the Press Kit because that lists Sonia as a cast member for season 46 when we all know that's not true. They're trying to focus on a certain number of Muppets this season. Are they doing the same with humans, too?

I was wondering about that too,I hope they're not completely retiring the other humans,definitely surprised about Leela and Mando. And if they are trying to focus on less human characters,why would they add another cast member instead of just using the ones they already have ???

Perhaps. At the "Humans of Sesame" event last month, no one but Sonia said anything about not being on the next season (they also didn't say they would be either, Alan excluded). I think it's possible that maybe budget wise they couldn't bring in the full human cast. Or maybe their scheduling wouldn't work out since it was taping at a different time. I dunno. We'll see!
