HBO outside of ROKU channel?

I have purchase HBO through ROKU (7 day free trial).  Can I watch HBO outside of the ROKU channel on a roku device?  I have an Apple TV device on a different tv and tried to log into HBO and it said my account wasn’t found.  Also, why no roku app on Apple TV device?  Is it HBO now or HBO go or other?

Re: HBO outside of ROKU channel?


Thanks for the post.

If you purchased a HBO subscription through Roku, you will only be able to watch HBO content through the Roku channel. If you purchased a HBO subscription through the channel provider directly, you will be able to watch the content in the channel on the Roku device.

For more information about the HBO channel, feel free to reach out to HBO support here:
