How to Get HBO Max on Firestick& Fire TV? We’ve been waiting forever to say these words: “Alexa, find HBO Max on Amazon Fire Stick”. On November 17, six months after WarnerMedia’s new streaming service was launched, an agreement was finally reached with Amazon. HBO Max became available for download on Amazon Fire TV devices – opening the platform up to an audience of nearly 50 million users.
The growth of HBO Max has been fairly measured in comparison with Disney Plus. After the streamer and Amazon resolved their points of contention around the linear HBO channel and ad revenue distribution, the platform saw a surge in registrations – and then again in December when HBO Max was added to Roku.
You can now watch HBO Max on Amazon Fire Stick, so we’ll show you how to set up HBO Max on Fire TV devices at a touch of a button: so you can stream brilliant HBO shows, Warner Brothers movies, and more.
What is an Amazon Fire Stick?
Amazon Fire Sticks are portable media streaming devices that turn your TV into a smart TV. These devices let you watch loads of online content, including network TV, individual channels, and subscription services. A lot of this content is free to view, however, apps like Amazon’s own Prime Video, as well as Netflix and Disney Plus need a monthly subscription.
There are two main types of Fire Sticks. The Amazon Fire TV Stick streams in HD and retails for about $40, while the Amazon Fire Stick 4K is about $50. With roughly four times the number of pixels, the 4K device provides a better-quality image. Both include a remote control with an integrated microphone and Alexa support.
To get started, just plug your Fire TV device into the HDMI port of a compatible TV, have a working Wi-Fi connection, and you’re ready to go.
