LG Electronics USA and WarnerMedia announced that the HBO Max app is now available on LG Smart TVs1 in the U.S., including its line-up of award-winning LG OLED TVs. The arrival of HBO Max on LG Smart TVs makes it easier than ever for subscribers to access the popular streaming platform’s full portfolio of premium content in one integrated experience and comes on the heels of the launch of HBO Max on LG Smart TVs across select territories in Latin America and the Caribbean in June.
LG Smart TV owners can now access HBO Max2 on the TV’s webOS platform by opening the HBO Max app using their remote or when available, by saying “HBO Max” into their LG Magic Remote3.
HBO Max is WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer streaming offering, with more than 13,000 hours of curated premium content. The platform is home to best-in-class quality entertainment, featuring the greatest array of storytelling for all audiences with the iconic brands of HBO, Warner Bros., DC, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Turner Classic Movies and more. LG Smart TV owners will have access to HBO Max’s entire catalog of programming, including an array of new series and film debuts.
Experts worldwide have hailed LG OLED as the best TV technology ever, thanks to its unique ability to create its own light.

Featuring Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos4, LG OLED TVs elevate your home entertainment experience and brings the magic of movies into your home. The LG OLED C series is currently the top-selling premium TV series in the US5.
