HBO Max reached almost all the popular devices and platforms since it's one of the best on-demand streaming apps and competes with Netflix and Hulu. Of course, it offers native apps for many TVs, including LG Smart TV. Since it's great to have it in your app library and watch all the WarnerMedia blockbuster movies and awesome series, let's see how to sign up, download, and install HBO Max on LG Smart TV.

Which LG Smart TVs Are Supported by HBO Max?

As per the streaming service's website, HBO Max offers a native app for LG Smart TV models with webOS 4.0 or later (or 2018 and later models) starting with August 2021, and these include OLED, 4K UHD, and some FHD/HD LED devices - so you can definitely install the app and watch HBO Max on these LG TVs. However, we recommend you go to your LG Smart TV Settings > General section and search for available software updates before installing the app.

For a list of supported LG Smart TV models, go to the manufacturer's website, choose Device Compatibility, and sign in with your LG User ID to see if your TV is supported. Alternately, you can check the list of HBO Max Compatible LG TVs.

How to Get HBO Max on LG Smart TV

  1. Before anything, you need have an HBO subscription, so sign up for HBO Max on their website if you don't have an account.
  2. Power ON your compatible LG TV and make sure it's connected to the Internet.
