Watch top HBO titles with HBO Now.
HBO Max is live in the US as of May 27, which means fans can watch classic titles such as Friends and the Harry Potter franchise.
The main point of confusion for subscribers has been which devices are compatible with the service.
Currently, Amazon devices – including setups such as Amazon Fire TV – and Roku are not compatible with the streamer.
Roku does not yet have a version of the app due to ongoing negotiations, and Amazon has not yet finalised a deal with WarnerMedia either.
