These new names are in addition to previously announced distribution partners Apple, Charter, Google, Hulu and YouTube TV.

But several major TV and over-the-top platforms still haven't jumped aboard the HBO Max train at this point - most notably, Roku and Amazon and Comcast, the nation's biggest cable operator.

A WarnerMedia spokesperson told Variety there was "nothing new to report" vis-a-vis a deal for HBO Max on Roku. Existing HBO customers from participating NCTC member companies will be given access to HBO Max at no extra cost and new customers will be able to purchase HBO Max directly through their cable or broadband provider.

Ahead of the launch of premium SVOD HBO Max next week, AT&T's WarnerMedia has announced a swathe of additional distribution partners including Sony and Microsoft for availability on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game consoles. In addition, HBO Max will be available to smaller ops through an agreement with the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC). HBO Max, touted as including everything available on HBO along with a slew, will be available only in the U.S.to start.

Altice USA will give all its existing Optimum and Suddenlink HBO and HBO Now subscribers immediate access to HBO Max.

The hires, which include 150 engineering positions, will focus on developing the ad-supported version of HBO Max for next year, its global launch and "eventually some live television", WarnerMedia Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Legg told The Information's Jessica Toonkel.

Verizon will distribute HBO Max to customers through its Fios TV and Fios Internet services.

The company has also not yet made a deal with Roku to make HBO Max available on Roku platforms at launch, but Variety reported Wednesday that the parties are in talks for such an agreement.
