    just launched and works on the TiVo Stream pretty well. I've not checked if it is integrated..yet. may fix the hbo go issue!

    Bonus for me is that the apk ripped from the Stream 4K works on the fire stick when side loaded!

    You're saying the Android TV HBO MAX APK worked properly on a Fire Stick? That's good to know!

    According to the press, there isn't expected to be an official HBO Max app on Fire TV for the foreseeable future. They are apparently at an impasse in terms of negotiations. Roku is also missing now, but that is expected to be worked out.

    Yes I saw that. Which is why the workaround above to side load Android TV HBO MAX APK to the Fire Stick is big news if indeed it works.

    I successfully side-loaded HBO MAX on my Fire TV Stick 4K using Aptoide. The app icon says HBO Now, but when I open it, it's HBO Max; it works really well!

    How to Install Aptoide TV APK on Firestick, Fire TV, & Android Box (2019)

    Thanks. Worked for me following your instructions. The only issue I ran into is I already had HBO NOW installed, and it wouldn't let me install HBO MAX stating it was already installed. So I had to first uninstall HBO NOW and then install HBO MAX via "Aptoide".

    Unfortunately HBO MAX didn't bring in "My List" from HBO NOW, so I have to re-do it all.

    Glad it’s available since I have a Roku TV and not on there (yet). I did notice things in my shows still say “HBO NOW” even though I updated the app to MAX. I tried searching MAX originals. They don’t show up yet. Hopefully an update to the stream 4K till fix this since NOW was integrated I assume MAX will be too

    Fire Stick search didn't find HBO MAX original "Love Life", but in the app itself I found it.

    Stupid question: is the live tv HBO on HBO Max?

    I had HBO through iTunes on my Apple TV. I tried to access HBO Max with no luck.

    No, at least I can't seem to find anyway to watch the actual HBO channel on HBO Max anymore. Still, everything on the HBO channel is available to stream at the same time it's available on the channel. Only now you control when the movie starts\ends and can pause whenever you'd like.

    Thanks. I was able copy the HBO Max apk from the Tivo stream 4K using the X-Plore app to a computer. To install on the Firestick 4K, I used ADBLink running on a PC. Super easy and thanks again.

    Reelgood already sent email saying they are supporting HBO MAX catalog of shows. Let's see how many weeks/months TiVo takes.

    Came here to say the same thing: fully aggegated in just a couple of days! It was actually even up well before they sent the email, so they did a soft launch for a day or so to make sure it was fine.

    Don't know about anyone else, but the side loaded HBO MAX on my FireStick stopped working recently (noticed yesterday). When trying to launch it would just say "unsupported". I had to uninstall and install HBO NOW in its place. Guess I'll just wait for the official HBO MAX app for Fire Stick if that will ever happen.

    Thought it was strange that I couldn't find HBO Max on my fire stick. Maybe this is a sign that they will soon add the AT&T WatchTV app to the TiVo Stream 4K.
