I hope Roku will settle their differences with Warner Media Entertainment. for streaming HBO Max. I like my Roku. but if it does not carry HBO Max, I will reluctantly switch my streaming device.


Well, the next most popular streaming device is the Fire TV, but Max isn't available there either. As mentioned, you can use a Chromecast, but myself I hate that it doesn't have its own user interface and remote.

HBO Max is available on the Nvidia Shield, but those are hard to come by right now, and cost far more than a Roku player.

This is not a solution.  For those of us using roku to access their streaming services connecting a new device to our tv to see all the content offered by hbomax (other hbo apps are not all inclusive) is very inconvenient.  Please work out a deal with HBOmax/ATT to better serve your customers.

Is anyone at Roku even reading this?  We are not hearing a peep out of them.  If you are reading this, at least let us know the current status of the negotiation.  We want our Max!!

I'm about to buy 3 new TVs I've been a loyal roku user but if I can't use hbomax as a stand alone app those new TVs will not be roku enabled devices.

I imagine both HBO and ROKU want HBO MAX to be available. ROKU users need to make it clear that we want HBO Max available now. Get a deal done ASAP!

Never happen. Roku never comments about anything going on behind closed doors. Yes, they have employee moderators here in this forum. But they would never be authorized to comment about this.

Hi Danny -

Thanks to Roku's inability to make a deal with HBO Max, I'm forced to give up a discount that I was supposed to get for signing up before launch.

 

While that part remains my problem, Roku's problem is that I will have to sign up via YouTube TV and you won't be getting any money for HBO max from me.

 

Thanks for thinking of your customers!

I tried the 7 day free trial for "HBO Max" on Hulu.     Guess what..   you only get access to HBO Now content.    Shame on Hulu, Shame on Roku
