HBO Max on Roku

Jump to solution

I have a 2015 Samsung Smart TV and it's half a year too old to support the HBO Max app evidently!  My question is if I get Roku can I download and use the HBO Max via it or will it still not work because my tv doesn't support the app?  Is Roku a workaround this situation or will I hit the same brick wall?  Thanks.

Roku just uses your TV as a display.  It doesn't matter how "smart" it is. or isn't.  (Modern channels work just fine on Roku played through my ~2008 TV.)
