WarnerMedia announced Monday that its flagship streaming service, HBO Max, is finally coming to Amazon Fire TV. The app will start rolling out to all of Amazon’s smart devices including Fire TV, Fire Tablets, and Fire TV Edition smart TVs on Nov. 17.

HBO Max first launched in May, however it was absent from many popular platforms for streaming, including Amazon devices. Another benefit of this new partnership between WarnerMedia and Amazon is that anyone who is subscribed to HBO through Amazon’s Prime Video Channels will also be able to log into the HBO Max app using their Amazon log in.

HBO Max is the streaming home to all of HBO’s content including past and ongoing shows, and any movies the premium channel has available. HBO Max also includes a huge selection of films from the Warner Bros. archive, as well as all of the DC superhero movies and series. The service even includes many of the cartoons and kids programming from channels within the WarnerMedia family like Cartoon Network.

While HBO Max’s arrival on Amazon devices should make it much easier for more people to watch, the service still remains conspicuously absent from a few of the most popular streaming platforms, including Roku and the newly released PlayStation 5. But with WarnerMedia finding a way to work out and agreement with Amazon, it’s possible deals with companies like Roku could be on the way in the near future.
