Via hulu you only get the HBO content- not all the “extra” stuff they added to the catalog via licensing. Not a true workaround.

I have 4 ROKU TVs and I can get MAX through Direct TV.  Unless you did not catch Harry Potter, Friends or the Sopranos 10 years ago or through Netflix.. this app offers nothing new.

You’d be missing their “maxx originals” now and future, as well as anything in the new licensed content that may be of interest.

Go to this site for workarounds to mirror HBO Max from your phone or laptop into Roku.  There is no other way to get the full HBO Max programming until the 2 companies come to an agreement - which won't be anytime soon.  The subscribers always get screwed.

Do you have to have Hulu live to be able to get hbo max?

My TV has Roku built in. I'm not throwing away my TV.

I like my roku too and have one for the Phillips tv in the living room. But here's the thing.  I have hbomax but I don't pay for hbomax so there's no way on this planet I'm going to dump roku for something I'm not even paying for.  I have AT&T Fiber 1000 so it's included.  No, it won't let me log in via any app that exists on the roku.  I have to log in with my AT&T account and Hulu and YouTubeTV (which I have) both reject it.

So I solved the issue too.  See, the way I figure it, I pay a good amount for a bunch of services. My locals are through YouTubeTV, I watch some stuff on Hulu or Prime and also NetFlix. Including internet, I pay over $100 a month. I solved the issue by simply getting a $30 chromecast for the TV and if I need it bad enough in the living room, I'll spend another for that tv too.  One-time.

 

Even if you're paying monthly for HBOMax, Chromecasts are cheap and they're completely worth it.

I agree. I have been a long time subscriber of HBO and it is totally unfair that I am disappointed that I can not view the new content. I’m going to unsubscribe after many years of being a long time HBO fan. I’ll subscribe to Showtime until the issue is resolved.
