HBO Max Will Introduce 4K Content, Beginning with ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first title on HBO Max to be available in 4K UHD, HDR 10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos when the film premieres on the streaming service later this month.

We reported last month that Wonder Woman 1984 will officially debut on HBO Max on Christmas Day, December 25th, in the US — the same day that the film will premiere in movie theaters. Patty Jenkins, director of Wonder Woman 1984, shared the news of the film streaming in 4K on Twitter.

This premium viewing experience will be available on supported devices including Apple TV 4K, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, Amazon Fire TV Cube, Chromecast Ultra, AT&T TV and supported Android TV devices.

While Wonder Woman 1984 will be the first 4K title, HBO Max will be expanding the capabilities to more film and TV titles, along with adding support for additional devices, throughout next year.

HBO Max is available for $14.99/month. The streaming service reached 8.6 million subscribers in Q3 2020, though that number has likely increased significantly since becoming available on Fire TV devices in November. HBO Max still has not reached a deal to offer an official app on Roku devices.
