In order to use the new HBO Now app, your Fire TV and Fire Tv Stick will need to be running the latest software version. For the Fire TV, that’s version 188.8.131.52 and for the Fire TV Stick, that’s version 184.108.40.206. You can download and install HBO Now on Fire TVs running older software, but once launched, you’ll be greeted with a message informing you that a software update is required before you can use HBO Now. Rooted Fire TV owners will be relieved to hear that a pre-rooted ROM of this latest software version was just released last night.
