Re: HBO Max App is available everywhere else today, why not on Roku?

$20.00 a month for a few movies available before disc release and a couple of TV shows thrown in is not worth it.

I already have plenty of apps and content to enjoy without breaking the bank.  DVDs take care of the rest of my viewing.

One hundred ninety-four days since HBO Max went live. The pity of it all is that it did not have an adverse effect on Roku stock.

it seems people are holding two opposing views at the same time. one that HBO Max has failed to reach very many homes and two that releasing films on their platform will affect ticket sales, if there are so few HBO subscribers then why would that affect ticket sales? Also there appears to be a bunch of "talent" that is upset but I thought the propose of art was to get people to enjoy it, I thought artist wanted people to see their work, these people sound like a bunch of ego driven money grubers..in any case I have access to a Xbox and use it to access the best streaming service in America HBO Max, remember HBO made the cable industry, anyway I wonder what is happening with device sales this year, there are a growing number of open access devices available

I'm growing weary of the wait, and switching devices (from ROKU to PC) just to watch HBO Max.

Hopefully I'll see an Amazon Fire Stick in my Christmas stocking this year. It's got every streaming service that I watch on it.

I've switched to Apple TV myself. I have now access to all streaming services.

I'm not sure complaining here is doing anything.  Either Roku employees are completely asleep and not even reading this thread, or other complains about it on Social Media platforms... or their hands are completely tied.  Therefore let's all complain to HBO Max.  You can submit feedback here: https://help.hbomax.com/Feedback

Just in case the forum masks the URL after I post this, its help.hbomax.com/Feedback

I get HBO Max with my DirecTV subscription.  You know what's really odd is AT&T doesn't even have an HBO Max app for their own Genie DVR.  Yet a Comcast X1 app is coming soon.  How backwards is this company?  Does AT&T really intend to ruin everything it gets its hands on?  Unfortunately they are too big to fail.

This topic has now been declared a deterioration of conscious thought and a real waste of time from the true problem<hint>and it's not any given app.  It's the lack of any real thought of simply using another brand of device/television to get the content of one's choice.   Changing a particular corporation from it's best interest is like swimming upriver against the current.  It might be done, but a real waste of time taken from streaming on anything at all.  

Knock it off now and discuss what Roku is still offering-an alternative without paying upfront for most of the content it offers.

Wouldn't it be ironic if enough ROKU users did actually switch to an alternative device? That would grab their attention, if not their bottom line!
