  • BREAKING – HBO Max To Roll Out on Roku! (And PS5 And Xfinity X1/Flex)


    It’s official.  HBO Max finally makes peace with Roku today.  Starting December 17th Roku owners will be able to use the HBO Max app rather than just the HBO app.

    Other platforms also got the HBO Max app this week including PS5 and Comcast’s X1/Flex boxes.

    Last week HBO Max announced 4k support AND a huge surprise announcement that all movies in 2021 by WarnerMedia will release day and date in theaters and HBO Max for the low streaming subscription price of $14.99/mo.

    Roku and HBO teaming up, or at least ending their feud, is an unexpected pleasant holiday surprise.

    “We believe that all entertainment will be streamed and we are thrilled to partner with HBO Max to bring their incredible library of iconic entertainment brands and blockbuster slate of direct to streaming theatrical releases to the Roku households with more than 100 million people that have made Roku the No. 1 TV streaming platform in America,” said Scott Rosenberg, Senior Vice President, Platform Business, Roku. “Reaching mutually beneficial agreements where Roku grows together with our partners is how we deliver an exceptional user experience at an incredible value for consumers and  we are excited by the opportunity to deepen our longstanding relationship with the team at WarnerMedia.”

    “HBO Max is an incredible product with an unparalleled content offering that puts the consumer at the center, and we’re thrilled that Roku users will be able to experience all the great stories HBO Max has to offer,” said Tony Goncalves, Chief Revenue Officer, WarnerMedia. “We’re breaking new ground in the months ahead, and we can’t wait to work with our longtime partners at Roku to build on our past successes and bring HBO Max’s best-in-class quality entertainment to Roku’s large and highly engaged audience.”
