The deals with the cable companies, as well as with the Comcast agreement the following week, made HBO Max available at no extra cost to those already subscribed to HBO. In 2021, WarnerMedia also plans to launch an ad-supported version of the service that is more affordable.

Through Amazon Channels or the Roku store, then you do not have access to HBO Max, because these companies did not strike a deal with HBO.
When it comes to content, HBO Max has content aimed at a wider demographic - there are plenty of TV series for adults, such as Friends, The Big Bang Theory and Rick and Morty. Customers with X1 Xfinity and Flex also have early access to NBCUniversal's new Peacock streaming service before it's available to everyone in July.More news: Seattle protests turn violent, National Guard activated
If you've already subscribed to HBO through Apple TV channels, apparently you can still watch it on the Apple TV app, but it won't update to include exclusive HBO Max content, according to 9to5Mac.
Sensor Tower estimated that HBO Now and Max have been downloaded by 33 million people since launching in April 2015, compared to 260 million for Netflix, 120 million for Hulu (both Netflix and Hulu were measured starting in January 2014) and 50 million for Disney+. We believe that if you're paying for HBO, you're entitled to the new programming through the method you're already using. Rebecca Heap, senior vice president, video and entertainment with Comcast cable is quoted in the release, saying, in part, "We look forward to partnering with WarnerMedia to integrate the HBO Max app on our platforms alongside close to 200 other streaming services", which are searchable using the Xfinity Voice Remote function. Integration with Channels allows users sign up and subscribe to a variety of premium television and streaming services in one place, thereby making standalone apps unnecessary.More news: SpaceX's Starship SN4 explodes during engine test
