Impasse between the two most popular platforms and newest streaming service highlights an evolving carriage battle
HBO Max remains off of the two most-used streaming platforms in the country more than a month after its launch.
The impasse between WarnerMedia and Roku and Amazon Fire TV is indicative of the evolving fight between those who make the content and those who distribute it. Carriage disputes between programmers and distributors are nothing new. TV providers such as Dish and Comcast have routinely engaged in a war of words — and sometimes have dropped channels — with providers like Disney and CBS.
