I just updated the old HBO app and it now opens up as HBOMax. Works fine on my t.v. I'm subscribed through Amazon and I have a TCL Roku t.v.

The only thing available at the time of this writing (6:55am, 12/17/20) is just hbo go. I've tried everything to get the max version but it's still not available. Maybe they will be rolling out an auto update later today. Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me

That's all I am seeing as well... only the basic HBO streaming channel and not the HBO Max channel

I'm sure there will be a mass rollout later today. There is a press release and plenty of articles to confirm this is happening...be patient guys, I'm waiting too.

Today is 12-17-20 and I tried searching for HBO Max. The only thing that pops up is the old HBO one. This is very frustrating.

Like everyone else, I cannot get HBOMax yet this AM.  Maybe I am being a little impatient after such a long wait.  Anyway, I signed up for HBOMax many months ago and continue to able to watch HBO on Roku.  Hoping later today this will all be cleared up.  Stay tuned.
