FireStick Max Can't Load Channels Beta

Today I got a new FireStick 4k Max and did a firmware upgrade. After Channels was loaded, I tried to load the Channels Beta, as I always did with my old FireStick 4k.

I get an error message saying that I need to go to "My Fire TV" -> "Developer Options" -> "Apps From Unknown Sources" and enable that option. The problem is that there is no "Developer Options" under "My Fire TV" or anywhere else I looked.

How do I fix this?

I believe Amazon is doing things now to disallow side loading apps? Not really sure. Check aftvnews maybe

What version of FireOS is it running?

Go to My Fire TV, and select About. Highlight the first option on the list, which is usually your device's name, and press the action button on your remote seven times
