Here’s what we know about HBO Max apps so far
The HBO Max website doesn’t have an official list of apps yet. However, it does say that HBO Max will be available on game consoles:
“HBO Max will be available on many popular devices: phones, tablets, Mac and PC browsers, streaming media players and game consoles. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to our launch date.”
Since PlayStation 4 is one of the most popular game consoles on the market, it’s reasonable to assume that HBO Max is coming to PlayStation 4. Another significant clue is that there’s already an HBO Now app in the PlayStation app store.
Why Sony may not want an HBO Max app for PS4
AT&T has big plans for HBO Max. At launch, it will be an on-demand streaming service like HBO Now. However, HBO plans to eventually add live TV and other features that might make it a direct competitor to PlayStation Vue.
