WarnerMedia’s HBO Max will begin airing this week on Amazon Fire TV and Fire Tablets, approximately six months after its launch.
HBO Max debuted in May for phones and various smart TV platforms, but in particular was absent from two of the largest streaming platforms: Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It will still launch on Roku.
Starting Tuesday, the HBO app on Fire devices will automatically update to HBO Max, and users can log in with their existing HBO credentials. Current HBO Max customers have access to the application on their Fire devices using their existing credentials. New customers can subscribe to the streaming service directly in the app for $ 14.99 per month. It is also available for people who have already subscribed to HBO through Amazon Prime Video Channels.
The terms of the deal between WarnerMedia and HBO were not disclosed. The companies have been negotiating for several months.
