Our national nightmare is finally over: HBO Max, which has been conspicuously absent from Fire TV, is coming to Amazon’s streaming solutions tomorrow. It’s also coming to Fire tablets.
“We are very excited that Amazon customers will now be able to enjoy the best-in-class content that lives within HBO Max,” WarnerMedia’s Tony Goncalves announced. (HBO is owned by WarnerMedia.) “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.”
To be clear, HBO Max lands on the entire Amazon Fire TV streaming lineup, including the Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Edition smart TVs, and Fire tablets starting tomorrow, November 17. Amazon customers will be able to control HBO Max content using their voice—as in, “Alexa, play Raised by Wolves” and the like—using the included Alexa Voice Remote or a paired Echo device.
