Hi!

I just double checked. HBO Max is available in the Amazon App store. Also, from what I understand if you have the HBO App on your Firestick it will auto update to HBO Max.

Well I'm moving on to Android TV.

The Sony X900H was on sale today briefly and I got it in time before they ran out and put the price back up.  So next week I'll be using the Android 10 OS in the TV and I can move the Roku Ultra to the bedroom so I can use airplay and move the Roku Premier to the family room where there already is an xbox if I need HBO Max there.

I would have considered the TCL R635 but with Roku being the OS on it, I had to pass.

The HBO Max app became available on Fire TV devices on November 17, 2020. Just about one month ago.

Roku is at it again!  This time its the Spectrum app.  I don't have Spectrum so this does not affect me, but I do know people that do have Spectrum for TV, Phone and Internet.

Roku needs to focus on being a hardware manufacturer and less time on trying to become their own little cable company.  Glad I am starting to move away from this disaster of a company.  Its just going to get worse and I hope Roku suffers terribly for it until they change their ways.

Roku is quickly becoming just another cable company. Those companies were a big part of why a lot of us cut the cord in the first place. Sigh...
