Hi,

I just ordered an amazon Fire Stick 4K (2018), ETA on Tuesday.



1. Does it come pre-installed with HBOMAX?

2. Currently, is HBOMax already available in Amazon Apps store? (i read somewhere that HBOMax is not).

3. I intend to plug tv stick to my DENON X4000 AVR. Any thing or settings that I should look out for?



Thanks, new user is always excited. 😊

I’d doubt it would be preinstalled, however HBO Max is a US only service so you’d need a VPN or smart dns to use it outside of the US.

Not really as don’t use one myself.
However if it’s a UK device then it’s very likely that HBO Max wouldn’t actually be available in the UK Play Store.

Think you have to mess around with your address on Amazon.com and get it from there it will then pop up on your fire stick.

I have a 4k Firestick plugged directly into a rear hdmi socket on my X4400H. Only setting on AVR required is enhanced video under video settings.

Its not in the apps store because obviously its a US app not a UK one but it can be side loaded just Google how to side load HBO Max on a 4k firestick and there's loads of instructions on how to do it
