Its list of AAA content makes it a service that cord-cutters either want to own or share. And thankfully, the HBO-branded service is available on a long list of popular devices, including the Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and more.

Can I Watch HBO Max on Other Devices?
Don’t see a device you currently own on the list? Don’t worry. As long as you have a modern TV, the tv-connected devices are a good entry point for new cord-cutters. We recommend either the Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, or Roku devices for newbies. That said, you cannot use any device that’s not currently listed on the HBO Max website.
Why Use HBO Max?
HBO Max has a fairly low-cost entry point of just $14.99/month. We say “low cost” here because of the quality of content that you get through the service compared to other services. In fact, a recent analysis of on-demand services found HBO Max has the highest proportion of top-rated content when compared to major providers like Hulu and Netflix.
Note that this list grows by the day, but with HBO Max, you can get the following titles:
- Game of Thrones
- Zack Snyder’s Justice League
- Sex and the City
- South Park
- The Sopranos
- The Big Bang Theory
- Rick and Morty
- Tokyo Vice
- Tom & Jerry: The Movie
- The Matrix
HBO Max is also slated to deliver some major movie releases at the same time or not long after they release into theaters. The first of these was Wonder Woman 1984, but many more are on the way.
