Users have waited long enough for the moment when they could tell Alex to open HBO Max. Eventually, six months after the launch of WarnerMedia’s new streaming service, an agreement with Amazon has finally been reached, and HBO Max has become available for download on Amazon Fire TV devices, opening the platform to an audience of nearly 50 million users.
HBO Max’s growth hasn’t been as rapid as Disney Plus, for example. However, once the streaming service and Amazon resolved the contentious issues surrounding the HBO linear channel and the distribution of advertising revenue, the platform benefited from a massive increase in subscriptions.
If you want to effortlessly watch great HBO shows, Warner Brothers movies, and more through your Amazon Fire TV, then you should install HBO Max on your device.
Well, here’s how to get HBO Max on your Amazon Fire TV or another Fire device.
What is HBO Max
HBO Max is a new streaming service that combines the incredibly popular HBO original programs with a huge catalog of blockbusters and TV shows provided by Warner Media.
HBO Max offers much more content than the current HBO Now offerings. The streaming service will also offer new exclusive movies.
With a huge collection of movies and TV shows and a growing list of original programming, HBO Max may well compete with Netflix, Disney Plus, and Amazon Prime Video in an increasingly saturated streaming market.
HBO Max includes all the standard HBO offerings as well as a host of new stuff from various Warner Media properties such as DC Comics, CNN, TNT, TBS, and Cartoon Network. In case you’re unfamiliar, Warner Media is just a new name for Time Warner meaning that a lot of classic movies and shows are available on HBO Max.
How to get HBO Max on the Amazon Fire device
If you want to install HBO Max on your Amazon Fire device, you have to follow these steps:
- First of all, go to the Fire device homepage.
- Then, type the “HBO Max” in the search bar and choose the HBO Max app.
