How to Watch HBO Max and CBS News App on PlayStation 5

Owners of the latest console from Sony can now watch HBO Max shows with the launch of a dedicated app for PlayStation 5. On top of the games that you play on PS5, you can also binge-watch movies and TV shows using your console.


Before the addition of HBO Max, other streaming service platforms are already available in PlayStation 5 when it launched. Some of the available apps include Netflix, Apple TV, Disney Plus, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Peacock, Funimation, Spotify, Twitch, and YouTube. PS4 users have access to HBO Max for some time now. Xbox Series X and S users, on the other hand, have been enjoying the streaming service since the next-gen consoles from Microsoft were launched.

HBO Max offers a wide variety of content that will surely pique the interest of avid gamers. Movies and TV shows from Warner Brothers are some of the things to look forward to in the coming months. Warner Bros announced earlier that its entire fleet of movies coming in 2021 will be streamed on HBO Max the same day it hits the theaters.
