WarnerMedia’s HBO Max will debut this week on Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets, about six months after its launch.

HBO Max debuted in May for a variety of phone and smart TV platforms, but was noticeably absent from the two largest streaming TV platforms: Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It has not yet been launched on Roku.

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

The terms of the deal for WarnerMedia and HBO were not disclosed. Negotiations were going on between the companies for several months.
