HBO has recently introduced its brand new subscription VOD (Video-on-demand) content streaming service called HBO Max. HBO Max is available on platforms like Apple TV, Android TV, iOS, Android, Chromecast, Xbox, PS4, and Samsung TV too.

Unfortunately, HBO Max isn’t available on Amazon and Roku. We don’t know if HBO Max will ever be seen on these platforms. There isn’t a way to get HBO Max on Roku, but you can use it on Amazon Fire TV Stick, Fire TV streaming box, Fire TV Cube, or even Fire TV edition television through a workaround that we have found out.

Can I Get HBO Max On My Firestick?

HBO Max is not available in the Amazon app store, but you are still allowed to download and install it manually on your Fire TV.

How Do I Download HBO Max On An Amazon Fire TV Device?

One of the benefits of owning an Android TV is that you can download installation files for applications that are not available in the play store officially.

The good thing for us is that Amazon’s operating system is based on Google’s Android operating system, which means that the above method still applies.

We will be using the Android TV version of HBO Max in order to install HBO Max on your Amazon Fire Stick TV. All you have to do is follow these simple steps.

  • STEP 1: Enable the sideloading on your Fire TV so that you can manually install APKs. It will be located in Settings -> My Fire TV section -> Developers Options and there enable the Apps From Unknown Sources.
  • STEP 2: Install the Downloader app on your Fire TV. You can ask Alexa to do this for you. 
  • STEP 3: Search for the latest version of HBO Max APK on the internet. We recommend you use APKmirror for this purpose. Use the downloader app to surf the net and download the APK.

You can use this link to download the APK. Type it in the address bar of the Downloader app

  • STEP 4: After the download is done, then an installation window should pop up. Click the install button and wait till it finishes the installation. HBO Max should now be visible on the homepage of your Fire TV.

You will now be able to use the platform by opening the app. You can manually update the app by using new APKs if you want to. You won’t have to go through this once HBO Max is released for Amazon.
