Amazon Fire users are finally getting their HBO Max wish: The WarnerMedia streaming service will be available on Amazon Fire TV streaming devices, Fire TV Edition smart TVs and Fire tablets beginning Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Per the official release, “Immediately upon launch, current subscribers of HBO through Amazon’s Prime Video Channels will be able to log in to the HBO Max app with their Amazon credentials at no additional cost. The HBO app on Fire TV and Fire tablets will automatically update to become the HBO Max app; customers will be able to log in using their existing HBO credentials.
