How to update HBO Max on a Samsung TV

HBO Max, the new streaming service from Warner Media, was launched worldwide on 27 May 2020. AT&T has been trying to encourage customers to shift their base to HBO Max, which will have an equal price to a standard HBO plan’s cost. This is currently $14.99 per month.

This new streaming service will include popular shows, such as Friends and The Big Bang Theory, besides a range of original series and films. As of now, HBO Max is only available on the following devices:
