Hbo max? What's the hold up?

Any news? Surely it will be available soon right? We have been waiting since spring! It's been a crazy year and the least ya'll can do is allow it.

Re: Hbo max? What's the hold up?

They won't even tell us whether or not they're still negotiating. They should be but who knows. Roku seems to think that if they can hold out and get everything they want from AT&T that they'll get everything they want from every provider from now on and be the dominant platform that makes tons of money off of subs and ads. But they seriously risk losing a lot of their customer base if they don't get HBO Max by Christmas day.

According to this morning's Variety, Roku is still demanding Roku Channel integration of HBO Max content which is AT&T's dealbreaker. So, it looks like if you want WW84, you'll have to use a different streaming device.
