One down, one to go as Warner Bros. has struck a deal with Amazon for the HBO Max service to arrive on Amazon devices.
HBO Max launched in May 2020, but it did so without support for Amazon or Roku devices. That equation finally changed on Monday as Amazon and Warner Bros. announced that the HBO Max service will arrive on Fire TV devices and Fire tablets beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The details of the deal have not been disclosed.
Amazon users who currently have the HBO app will automatically update to HBO Max beginning on Nov. 17. At that time, customers who subscribe to HBO via Amazon Channels will also be able to use their login credentials for Max.
“We are very excited that Amazon customers will now be able to enjoy the best-in-class content that lives within HBO Max,” Tony Goncalves, head of sales and distribution for WarnerMedia, said in a statement. “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.”
Currently, the Roku streaming platform is the last major platform without access to HBO Max. There is no word at this time if there are current talks between the two companies.
HBO Max is the new home for all of the original DC Universe content such as Doom Patrol and Titans as the DC streaming service is relaunched as an online comic-only service.
