Nearly seven months after HBO Max’s debut, it’s finally available on Roku, the leading OTT (over the top) screening platform with over 46 million active users. As reported in Variety, this new deal will greatly expand HBO Max’s reach, as it now has a presence on all ATT platforms.

Hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern discussed this new launch breaking down:
