Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

That’s a lie did that can’t watch friends or Big Bang theory so your just telling everyone shot they already knew you could do to watch shorty shows and movies like game of thrones and joker so no need to add it especially coming from a liar like you

It's not all of HBO Max's content: only HBO. So no, this is neither the same thing nor is it a solution.

NOT SOLVED

So throw something out that I've already paid for and that has everything else that I stream just because one service is unwilling to negotiate?

Nah.

How does anyone on this community know for certain which party is holding up the deal...Roku or AT&T? As I've posted before, based on past experience with AT&T, I'm sure they're at least partly to blame. But from what I've learned about Roku I suspect they are also sharing that blame.

If it was just Roku that they weren't on, fine I'd be inclined to believe that Roku was the issue. But considering they launched unavailable on the 2 largest streaming platforms then it seems most likely an AT&T issue.

HBO totally botched the launch.  No 4K, little new product, and no contracts in place with Roku or Amazon.  Whoever's in charge should be fired.  I subscribed with the introductory offer of $11.95/month but I can't watch it on Roku.  I just cancelled.  When they get it together, I will resubscribe either with Roku or with YouTube TV.

Very **bleep** rollout.  Not on two of the biggest services, and I did the same as you, subbed abd turned right around and dropped it  Once they finish arguing and show up on Roku, they have me back

I tried this, but I couldn’t access everything that’s offered through the hbo Max app, like the studio ghibli content Smiley Sad

I would say HBO is being greedy. They think they have the same value as Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. They don't. I didn't even realize HBO Max was coming until I logged into my ATT account and saw that I get HBO Max free because of my Internet account. I started hearing rumors about Disney+ almost a year ahead, and at this point there's no way HBO Max can be compared to Disney+, let alone Netflix or Hulu. The smart thing to do would be consolidate all content under HBO Max (right now it's not), take a slightly lesser deal, and promote like crazy so when renewal time rolls around you actually have a bargaining position. If I didn't get it free I wouldn't even be thinking about HBO Max. I like having access to all the Harry Potter movies, the original Scooby Doo, Where Are You? and a few other things, but there is not enough there to replace Netflix or Hulu, and definitely not enough to justify adding another $15 streaming service.

I've said it before, HBO Max needs Roku a lot more than Roku needs HBO Max.
