Amazon has confirmed that HBO NOW – the broadcaster’s OTT service – is available on Fire tablets, and will be available on Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick in the coming weeks.
“If there’s one thing Fire TV and Fire tablet customers are telling us, it’s that they love to watch their favourite movies and TV shows. This is why the team is doubling down on adding great new movies and TV shows for Fire TV and Fire tablet customers—in less than five months we’ve added over 700 new channels, apps, and games to Amazon Fire TV, and over 300,000 apps are now available on Fire tablets,” said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President, Amazon Appstore. “HBO has produced some of the most groundbreaking and award-winning TV shows and movies, and we are excited to introduce HBO Now on Fire tablets and soon on Fire TV.”
“Amazon has cultivated an incredibly vast and savvy base of customers that we’re excited to provide with unlimited access to all of HBO through HBO NOW,” said Bernadette Aulestia, Executive Vice President, Global Distribution Operations, HBO. “The addition of Amazon devices is another great stride in the distribution of HBO NOW and affirmation of our long standing partnership with Amazon.”
In the coming weeks, HBO NOW will also be available on Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, joining the increasing number of developers building for the platform.
