TVision & HBOMAX app

Please develop TVision & HBOMAX apps for Roku. I don't want to abandon you for the Amazon fire just because they have them and you don't!

Re: TVision & HBOMAX app

Roku does not develop apps/channels for their devices. They are all developed by 3rd parties, except for The Roku Channel and Roku Media Player. You have to ask the provider to create a channel for Roku devices.

HBO has a channel ready for Roku devices, but they are still in negotiation with Roku for distribution. There are a number of threads already here about it, so I won't go into detail here.

YES!! Its ridiculous. I have a Roku TV, Roku Prime, and Roku stick. If they don't support HBOMAX, I WILL change all of this.

There isn't a player on the market that does "everything". Every one of them is lacking something. Most users have simply decided to have more than one model.

Re: TVision & HBOMAX app

I've been with Roku almost since the beginning. They always got apps for everyone and now all of a sudden they're running into these issues. I to would hate to leave roku but if they don't get their head out of the sand and get these deals made and locked down with hbomax and tvision, I fear if there's another major stream app launch and they fail to get it, they're gonna see people leaving them for their competitors.
