Max waited until the year was nearly up, but now an agreement has been reached with Roku that will bring HBO back to the streaming platform starting today (it's also available on Sony's PS5, assuming you can actually buy one). WarnerMedia announced that Comcast's Xfinity was receiving HBO Max on Tuesday and a PlayStation 5 announcement was made early Wednesday, leaving Roku fans to wonder when they were getting the app and if it would be in time for the release of "Wonder Woman 1984".
Last week, almost seven months after its launch, HBO Max finally landed on the Roku platform.
The HBO application now on Roku will automatically update to HBO Max, Roku said. Max is now available on the PS5, giving subscribers full access to an enormous library of streaming films and shows.
(Pocket-lint) - If you use a Roku device and want to watch Wonder Woman 1984 when it comes out later this month, you're in luck. Users who are already subscribed to HBO via AT&T or DirectTV, can access HBO Max by using their TV provider credentials as well to log in to the service. HBO Max, together with its agreement with Amazon, is all prepared for the big day of its launch. Other Roku users can look for the app in the "New and Notable" and "Movies & TV" categories of the Roku channel store.
To download the HBO Max app on your PS5, head to the Media section and search for HBO Max if you don't immediately see it among the listed apps.
