HBO Max becomes “fully integrated” with TiVo Stream

The Android-based TV streamer says it now fully supports AT&T's blockbuster service.

The Android-based TV streamer says it now fully supports AT&T's blockbuster service.

Streaming service HBO Max is now fully integrated into the native TiVo app on the TiVo Stream 4K, according to a report.

Industry trade publication Multichannel News reported on Monday that a company spokesperson said the AT&T WarnerMedia application is natively supported on the device.

That news comes as no surprise: Since it launched in late May, HBO Max has been supported on the Android TV platform, and the TiVo 4K Stream uses a variant of the Android TV operating system.

The integration means HBO Max content is discoverable within the TiVo app, which is exclusive to the device. Competing streaming services Netflix, Hulu and Sling TV are also natively integrated into the app.

Outside of the app, the TiVo Stream 4K is just another Android TV device, with compatible apps available through the Google Play Store.

As of Monday, AT&T was still missing distribution agreements with the two biggest streaming platforms — Roku and Android Fire TV — making it difficult for 70 percent of TV streamers to access the service.
