WarnerMedia announced today that HBO Max will begin rolling out to Amazon Fire TV devices, Fire TV Edition smart TVs, and Fire Tablets on Tuesday, November 17.
“We are very excited that Amazon customers will now be able
to enjoy the best-in-class content that lives within HBO Max,” said Tony
Goncalves, Head of Sales and Distribution for WarnerMedia. “Our continued goal
is to make HBO Max and its unparalleled content available to customers across
all the devices they love. Fire TV is a favorite among customers and we look
forward to working with the Amazon team to engage and grow our existing
subscriber base by showcasing all that HBO Max has to offer.”
Those who are already subscribed to HBO through Amazon Prime
Channels will be able to log in to the HBO Max app with their Amazon
credentials at no additional cost. The HBO app will automatically update to the
HBO Max app on Fire TV devices and Fire tablets.
If you’re a new customer, you’ll be able to subscribe to HBO
Max through the HBO Max app.
Use Alexa to find, launch, and navigate the app. Start by
saying “Alexa, find HBO Max” if you’re using a Fire TV with an Alexa Voice
Remote or a paired device with Alexa.
“We’ve worked closely with HBO for many years to bring their great content to Fire TV and to make it easier to discover and enjoy with features like search integration, Alexa and personalized recommendations,” said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services, “We are excited to continue that partnership with the launch of HBO Max to bring even more incredible content to customers on Fire TV. Alexa, play Raised by Wolves.”
On HBO Max, Amazon Fire TV users will find HBO Originals, iconic TV, major movies, and HBO Max Originals.
HBO Max launched on May 27, without availability on Roku or Amazon Fire TV devices. Even without apps on the two most popular streaming platforms, HBO Max reached 8.6 million subscribers in Q3. AT&T has not yet made a deal to bring HBO Max to Roku.
