WarnerMedia’s HBO Max will begin rolling out this week to Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets, approximately six months after launch.
HBO Max debuted in May for phones and a variety of smart TV platforms, but was notably absent from two of the biggest streaming TV platforms: Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It has not yet launched on Roku.
Starting Tuesday, the HBO app on Fire devices will automatically update to HBO Max, and users can sign in with their existing HBO credentials. Current HBO Max customers can access the app on their Fire devices using their existing credentials. New customers can subscribe to the streaming service right in the app, for $ 14.99 per month. It’s also available to people who already subscribe to HBO through Amazon Prime Video Channels.
Terms of the agreement between WarnerMedia and HBO were not disclosed. The companies had been in negotiations for several months.
