HBO urges Xbox One console owners to “stay tuned for more details”
HBO hasn’t revealed exactly which platforms HBO Max will support yet. However, it has said that the streaming service will be available on various types of popular TV devices:
“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.”
Xbox One is one of the leading game consoles. Therefore, it makes sense to expect that HBO is working on an HBO Max app. Since Microsoft hasn’t jumped into the streaming service arena, there’s no obvious reason why Microsoft wouldn’t want to partner with HBO.
In the meantime, you may want to consider HBO Now
If you’re interested in HBO content and you’re thinking about joining HBO Max next year, you may want to consider trying out HBO Now. HBO has said that all HBO Now customers will be able to access HBO Max for no additional cost.
