How Do I Get HBO MAX On My TV?

What Is HBO Max?

HBO Max is a brand new streaming service offered by WarnerMedia. It features ground-breaking series and documentaries produced by HBO, as well as shows produced by DC and Warner Bros., as well as award-winning specials and popular shows that are appropriate for all ages. HBO Max on DirecTV, also it is now available to new and existing Xfinity TV customers who subscribe to HBO either a la carte or as part of a package and Xfinity Internet customers who subscribe to HBO through Flex. The service features 10,000 hours of content and is available to Xfinity Internet customers who subscribe to HBO through Flex.

How to access HBO Max if you are an HBO channel subscriber?

Suppose you already have an HBO subscription through a participating cable or digital provider. In that case, you will automatically have access to HBO Max and will no longer be required to use HBO Go. HBO Max effectively replaces HBO Go with a larger content library.


You can get HBO Max by going to play.hbomax.com, downloading the HBO Max app for your iPhone or Android device from the App Store or Google Play, or installing the app on a smart TV that is compatible with HBO Max (you can find and download HBO Max through the channel store on your TV or media player). After that, sign in using the credentials provided by your provider. You will have access to HBO Max if you have an active HBO subscription through any of the following providers:

  1. Roku
  2. Apple TV
  3. AT&T TV
  4. Cox
  5. DirecTV
  6. Hulu
  7. Optimum
  8. Spectrum

How to get HBO Max on Roku?

After we've dealt with the most frustrating aspect of the situation, we can finally get down to the nitty-gritty of the problem. First up is Roku, which is widely considered to be the most successful manufacturer of streaming devices in the United States. It is just as simple to include HBO Max in the channel lineup of your Roku device as it is to have Netflix or Hulu. If you don't feel like clicking over to the page that explains this on Roku's website, allow me to summarize what you need to know here:

  1. You can access the "Streaming Channels" menu by pressing the "Home" button on your Roku remote and navigating to it.
  2. You can find the HBO Max app by clicking the "Search Channels" button and then entering "HBO Max," or at least enough for the search auto-fill to find and show it to you.
  3. Move the cursor to HBO Max, click its name to highlight it, and then click the "Add Channel" button.
  4. There! All done. It should be visible on your Roku device's home page now.

If you have a Roku voice remote, you can save the time it takes to type in the app's name by simply saying "HBO Max" into the microphone instead. This provides a more efficient solution.

Next, let's talk about watching HBO Max on an Amazon Fire Stick. 

Like Roku, this is as easy on your Fire Stick or any other Fire TV device as using any streaming service.

  1. Go to the home page of your Fire Stick and look for the search box, which should look like a magnifying glass.

  3. Once you see the HBO Max app, tap it and then tap the download button.
  4. Like magic, HBO Max should now be on the list of apps on your Fire Stick.

How to get HBO Max on Apple TV?

I'm going to seem repetitive, but the truth is the truth. HBO Max is also available on Apple TV streaming devices, and downloading the app is just as simple as it is on Roku and Fire Stick:

  1. On your Apple TV, go to the App Store.
  2. Look up "HBO Max" on the internet.
  3. Please select it and click the download button once you've found it.
  4. After that, you should be able to access it from the Apple TV app list. Again, Siri is supported by Apple TV, and you may ask Siri to help you discover DirecTV HBO Max or any other app.

Final Verdict

 It only takes a few simple steps to download HBO Max on your smart TV and start watching everything it has to offer.

There's also no need to worry about utilizing a separate streaming device if you use the built-in app.
