Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Good catch, sherken12! If you know what you want to watch, obviously by finding it on another device or looking on their website, you can get a known show to play that way. I tested that and it works, with the caveat that the only controls you can access are pause/forward/backward and the 7 second replay. You can't access the closed caption on/off and you can't use the HBO Max menu at all to browse other shows, etc. obviously.
Thanks for that suggestion. At least if I want to finish watching something in my bedroom I can use that workaround. Much obliged.

I think Closed Caption option to turn ON/OFF is just not in the current version of HBO Max on Roku. I am not experiencing the issues described in this thread with HBO Max on my TCL Roku TV. I can navigate menus, search for items and play content without issue, but Closed Caption option is not available. HBO Max on a Fire TV 4K Stick has the Closed Caption available. I'm sure it will come with an inevitable update with all the issues people are having.

This worked for me. Clear Cache on ROKU. Make sure Home is selected from the main menu. From the remote control, press the following buttons consecutively: Press Home 5 times. Press Up. Press Rewind 2 times. Press Fast Forward 2 times.... Wait. It will take about 15 to 30 seconds to clear cache and restart. Be patient. It's worked for me on my stick. I find I have to clear cache more often when using HBO max
