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.
if you have HULU add it to your plan and you dont have to dump your Roku, you can access HBO max for the same price through the website or HULU. Just saying look for a work around before you throw something away just because you can't find or fix the problem immediately! I i have the disney+ Hulu ESPN + no add subscription and HBO Max on my Roku all because I have HULU I was able to watch all of the above and not have to buy a new device! I pay $33.00 all together for all 4 streaming services
Please be aware that HBO Max is currently not available on the Roku platform.
For more information visit www.hbomax.com and subscribe to the latest channel updates at http://blog.roku.com. To access HBO, go to HBO on The Roku Channel or visit the Roku Channel Store to download HBO NOW.
Add HBO Max to get access to all of HBO including hits like Game of Thrones, Westworld, Last Week Tonight and movies like the Joker and Crazy Rich Asians. In addition, you’ll have access to classic TV favorites like Friends and The Big Bang Theory, plus new Max Originals like Love Life. HBO content available via Hulu. Additional content only available via HBO Max app.
I would suggest that people be patient and wait for Warner and Roku to work things out. I read that they are close to a deal. Why limit your connection to Hulu or subscribe to it just to get Max? My humble opinion. Of course I am not an impatient young person who needs everything right now--though I remember those days! Also, if you have Amazon Fire TV you can get HBO Max using the Android app. Check out TechHive for details. I did it and have Max on Fire TV. It's all legal, and involves changing Fire settings to permit "unknown" apps (i.e. "Android" apps), then using the Downloader app to DL the Android HBO Max app. Here's the URL: https://tinyurl.com/y7nrzmo7. This is real. If you don't trust my link, just google "how to get hbo max on amazon fire tv right now."
I subscribe to Youtube TV and of course I use a Roku to access it. HBO Max is available as a premium subscription which gives you access to the Library that is set for HBO Max which includes plenty of Warner Media that is not available to HBO Now subscribers. The one big downside is that you will access via the Youtube TV interface which is very good but probably not as good or the same as the actual app for HBO Max.
actually you can only get HBO through Hulu it has HBO Max but you cannot get the extra content unless you access HBO Max through the app which if you have a Roku TV you have to get the app from Roku it doesn't exist. So currently if you subscribe to HBO Max through Hulu you can only get the movies not the extra content but you can watch HBO Max on the internet on your computer or your phone
The problem is HBO MaX on hulu is limited access, you DO qualify for HBO MAX if its added but in order to watch original series like Love Life or Friends all of the fun new stuff you DO have to download the Max app and sign in thru Hulu
