HBO Max is just like any other streaming service out there like Hulu, Crunchyroll, etc where you pay money in order to have access to their services. HBO Max is available in Apple iOS, Apple TV, Google’s Android, Android TV, etc. If you own an Apple TV, and you want to enjoy the services offered by HBO Max, then you are in luck as I will be guiding you through how to watch HBO Max on Apple TV app.
HBO Max was initially launched in May 2020. It is an American subscription video-on-demand streaming service owned by AT&T through the WarnerMedia Direct Subsidiary of WarnerMedia. While HBO Max may be considered as nearly launched, HBO has been the king of premium content for over 50 years with high quality and licensed content.
HBO expanded its service and called it HBO Max, HBO Max now has HBO’s impressive library of original shows and movies added with content from its parent company WarnerMedia, all joggled up into a single subscription service. HBO has upped their game with the launch of HBO Max as they intend to show Warner’s key theatrical releases on the same day they hit the cinemas.
For example, the widely anticipated Wonder Woman 1984 which debuted on December 25, 2020, was only released the same day on HBO, if you ask me, it’s an interesting feat as it saves you the cost of visiting the cinema for an extra 20 bucks (dollars) or more when you can sit in the comfort of your home and enjoy the movie for the same subscription price of 15 bucks a month.
Additionally, with HBO Max, you have access to over 10,000 hours worth of premium content, containing your favorite shows such as Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, The Undoing, and even Euphoria. You can also enjoy exclusive content with HBO Max such as the Prince of Bel-Air, Sitcom friends, Rick and Morty comedy cartoon, and also the award-winning anime of Studio Ghibli.
With HBO Max you can also enjoy the growing slate of Max originals such as Seth Rogen starring An American pickle and like I mentioned earlier, you also get to enjoy all Warner Brothers 2021 movies.
With the above amazing features, I’m sure you want to have HBO Max installed on your Apple TV, so without further ado, I’ll be showing you how to watch HBO Max on your Apple TV app.
