HBO used to be available to stream on Amazon via Amazon Channels. What about HBO Max? Is HBO Max on Amazon? Will that ever be the case?
We used to be able to watch all HBO programming via Amazon Channels. Instead of getting your HBO account directly, you’d subscribe via Prime Video with the HBO Channel. It was a great way to keep all your content in one place.
Then things changed. HBO Max came out, and then HBO was removed as one of the channels. While it’s possible to get the HBO Max app on Amazon devices, like the Fire TV, fans want to be able to get the app via Amazon Channels.
Is HBO Max on Amazon Channels?
Right now, there is some bad news. HBO Max is not yet available via Amazon Channels. It is available via Hulu Channels, though, so the decision not to include it on Amazon doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Channels was a great way for apps to gain business, and it remains popular for the likes of STARZ, SHOWTIME, and even discovery+.
In fact, we should pay attention to the fact that discovery+ is on Amazon Channels. This could help to change the decision for HBO Max not to be on the app.
Warner Bros. (HBO Max) and Discovery (discovery+) have combined as one. There is a promise of both the apps becoming one, too. This is set to happen sometime in 2023. It would mean one of the apps disappears, but which one will that be? Could HBO Max be merged into discovery+ or vice versa?
Whichever the way, it’s possible that it will be eventually possible to get HBO Max on Amazon. Discovery knows the benefit of having its own app on the streamer via Amazon Channels. Why wouldn’t it put HBO Max on there too?
