WarnerMedia’s HBO Max launches this week about six months after its launch on Amazon Fire TV and Fire Tablets.
HBO Max debuted for phones and a variety of smart TV platforms in May, but was absent from two of the biggest streaming TV platforms in particular: Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It has yet to start on Roku.
Starting Tuesday, the HBO app on Fire devices will be automatically updated to HBO Max and users will be able to sign in with their existing HBO credentials. Current HBO Max customers can access the app using their existing credentials on their Fire devices. New customers can subscribe to the streaming service for $ 14.99 per month directly in the app. It’s also available to people who already subscribe to HBO through Amazon Prime Video Channels.
The terms of the WarnerMedia and HBO deal were not disclosed. The companies had been in negotiations for several months.
