How do I get HBO Max? And why so many HBO products?

How do I get HBO Max? And why so many HBO products?”

Max, the forthcoming streaming service from AT&T Inc-owned WarnerMedia, announced on Wednesday several new partners will carry its content, but it has not yet announced deals with Comcast Corp, Amazon.com Inc or Roku Inc.

AT&T has committed to spending $4 billion on HBO Max over the next three years - including programming development and the costs of forgoing some licensing revenues in order to feature movies and TV content on HBO Max.

However, it does not appear that there's any chance HBO Max will be available to Amazon Fire customers at launch.

In a statement, the Roku rep said, "As the No. 1 streaming platform in the USA with over 40 million active accounts that rely upon Roku to access their favorite programs and to discover new content, we are focused on entering into win-win distribution agreements with all new OTT services as part of their launch strategies". With the upcoming launch of HBO Max later this month, those with a PS4 and Xbox One will have another option for streaming starting next week.

First, it means that to access the full set of HBO Max content, will require you to have HBO Max App on your streaming player or mobile device.

The company had previously announced distribution deals with Apple Inc, Charter Communications Inc, Hulu and Alphabet Inc's Google and YouTube TV. Once there, they can log-in with their cable or streaming credentials to access the app.

Under each of the agreements, existing HBO customers of the partner companies will be given access to HBO Max at launch at no extra cost while new customers will be able to purchase HBO Max directly for $14.99 per month from each provider. Existing HBO customers from participating NCTC member companies will be given access to HBO Max at no extra cost and new customers will be able to purchase HBO Max directly through their cable or broadband provider.

Through the NCTC agreement with WarnerMedia, HBO Max will be made available at launch to independent cable and broadband operators including WOW!; Atlantic Broadband; RCN, Grande Communications and Wave; and MCTV.
