  • WarnerMedia's HBO Max will begin rolling out Tuesday on Amazon Fire TV devices.
  • The agreement comes roughly six months after HBO Max's launch.
  • The terms of WarnerMedia's and HBO's deal were not disclosed. The companies had been in negotiations for several months.

WarnerMedia's HBO Max will begin rolling out this week on Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets, roughly six months after its launch.

HBO Max debuted in May for phones and a variety of smart TV platforms, but was notably absent from two of the largest streaming TV platforms: Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It has yet to launch on Roku.

Starting Tuesday, the HBO app on Fire devices will automatically update to HBO Max, and users can sign in with their existing HBO credentials. Current HBO Max customers can access the app on their Fire devices using their existing credentials. New customers can subscribe to the streaming service directly in the app, for $14.99 per month. It's also available for people who already subscribe to HBO through Amazon Prime Video Channels.
