By Lore Apostol / November 27, 2021

The HBO content giant offers support for almost all the existing popular devices and platforms for its HBO Max streaming service. Of course, this also applies to Apple products, and by extension, to Mac devices. Let's see how to sign up, download, and install HBO Max on Mac.

We should mention that you can also turn to your other Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod - and Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD if you'd like to watch on a bigger screen.

What Mac Devices Are Supported by HBO Max?

The HBO Max website mentions in the Browsers section that HBO Max can be watched on Mac, PC, and Chromebook browsers, so any Mac device with macOS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or later is good to go - MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Mini. If you're using Safari 11 or later on your Mac, you're also set. Just make sure your system is up to date.

How to Get HBO Max on Mac

  1. First, open a browser on your Mac device.
  2. You need to sign up to HBO Max before watching anything if you aren't already a customer. Now follow the prompts on the screen and finish setting up your account.
  3. If you're already a subscriber, go to the HBO Max website.
  4. On the upper-right corner, click sign in and enter your HBO Max credentials.
  5. You can now play the desired TV Show or Movie.

Why Won't HBO Max Work on My Mac?

Make sure you're using a supported browser. If your browser is a supported one, update your browser to the latest version.

Can You Mirror HBO Max From Mac?

Yes, you can. To use the mirroring feature on a Mac, use the AirPlay icon in the menu bar to connect the devices and mirror HBO Max to a device with AirPlay 2 compatibility - such as Apple TV, for example. Connect your Mac to the same Wi-Fi network as your AirPlay 2-compatible device and make sure AirPlay is enabled on it.
