I'm thinking HBO Max may have to cave soon because they want to put Wonder Woman 1984 on there, and if they want it to be as big of a hit as possible, they need to get it to Roku so it's available to the widest base possible.
Or you could flip that around. HBO is sitting with a pat hand, while Roku loses holiday sales every day that customers know it's the only platform they can't use to watch WW84 after they open the box on Christmas Day.
You're not wrong. I have a Roku TV and would prefer to just pull up the streaming services I use there, but I have a Chromecast and a Fire TV stick plugged into it, so if they don't work this out by then, I have options.
Still, you can see about 90+% of streaming services on Roku while HBO Max launched without a big must see show (though I do love Doom Patrol, but it wasn't an exclusive then) and so far, its most enticing offerings are movies you can't see in the theater thanks to the pandemic.
Please be aware that HBO Max is currently not available on the Roku platform.

This is sad. So long ago people had a problem and you are ignoring it while saying you solved it by repeating it out loud. WE WANT HBO MAX. At this point I am switching to Amazon fire sticks. At least they listen to what customers want. Sad. Sad.
i definitely (as an HBO subscriber) would like to be able to watch HBO Max on one of my 4 Roku's, but i assume that eventually it will be available on Roku, and will just wait it out...i have no plans to buy another streamer and just waste my $$ so i can watch WW1984 on the 1st day, only to have it turn up on my Roku's a week or a month later.
