When HBO Max launched in May 2020, tens of millions of Roku users regretted being left out of their streaming device, as they couldn’t access a great deal of classic and premium content, even if they were subscribers.
Since the allure of the HBO brand, HBO Max’s exclusive rights to popular shows, as well as all Warner Brothers films in 2021 will be broadcast on the platform as well as in theaters, the two companies seemed to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. And now, watching HBO Max on Roku couldn’t be easier.
How to watch HBO Max on Roku?

HBO Max is compatible with Roku streaming player or with Roku TV™ if running Roku OS 9.3 and above. To find this information, go to the Home screen and select Settings & System [Settings & System], then tap About [About].
If your previous generation Roku device isn’t compatible with Roku OS 9.3 and you’d like to watch HBO Max, visit your Roku product pages and order the new Roku streaming device that meets your needs.
