HBO Max is one of the most sought after streaming services out there thanks to its quality content and excellent performance. There are several ways you can watch HBO Max on your TV, the most popular of which include the use of a PC, Google Chromecast, and even mobile devices.
Users also stream their HBO Max content to the TV using the cast option on their devices. But what if you already have a media rig connected to your PC that is more than capable of streaming content using HBO Max? What if you already have a PS4 connected to your TV?
Wouldn’t it be easier to use your PS4 instead? Would it not take away the hassle of connecting a new device to your PC? So can you stream HBO Max using your PS4 on your TV? Let’s take a look at it!
How to get the HBO Max app on your PS4?
HBO has not released an official Max app for the PS4 but has rather updated the existing HBO Now app with its content. Installing the app is a fairly simple process on the PS4, simply follow the guide below to help you get started.
Step 1: Open your PS4 and scroll to the extreme right and enter your library.
Step 2: Now select ‘Applications‘ from the left sidebar on your screen and scroll down and select ‘TV & Video‘.
Step 3: Wait for the page to load. Once it is loaded, select ‘Search‘ at the top of your screen and search for ‘HBO Max’.
Note: In case you do not get the HBO Max app, then search for ‘HBO Now‘ app as it will be replaced by PS4 to HBO Max automatically.
Step 4: Select the HBO Max app (or HBO Now app) from the search results and select ‘Download‘ on the next screen right under the app icon.
Step 5: Once the app is installed, simply launch it from your launcher and log in with your account credentials to get you started. See the guide below on signing in to HBO Max on PS4 using their sign up page.
