Jason Gurwin

With the addition of AirPlay support to Roku streaming players and Roku 4K TVs, you can now watch HBO Max on your Roku devices.

Since there is currently no HBO Max channel app natively available on Roku, this is the easiest way to watch shows that are only available on HBO Max like the entire library of “Friends”, original series like “Love Life”, “Raised By Wolves”, and “The Flight Attendant.”

AirPlay is supported on 4K Roku Streaming Players like Roku Premiere, Roku Streaming Stick+, Roku Ultra, Roku Streambar, Roku Smart Soundbar, and Roku 4K TVs.
