WarnerMedia’s pending SVOD platform HBO Max will be available across Google platforms and devices and on Google Play when it launches May 27, the company announced.
It will be available to U.S. customers across Android phones and tablets, Android TV devices and Chromebooks. HBO Max subscribers will also be able to stream their favorite shows and movies via Google Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices.
