Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

Sadly I doubt a deal will be made anytime soon, roku has been feuding with at&t since the beginning of January. at&t pulled their TV app from roku and 5 months later they still have not made a deal. I have a feeling this will be no different. I hope I'm wrong tho.

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

I am looking to view the studio ghibli collection on HBO Max. 

I do not see that when I add HBO Max to Hulu. 

Any solutions / suggestions ?

@chattersubho you might only be able to watch it in the HBO max app on your phone, tablet, web browser. If you have hbo max on hulu I think you're able to use the hbo max app too. The only way to get it to your tv is to mirror it

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

This is not a good solution and weirdly hostile for a product help group. 

1. Not all HBO Max content is available through Hulu.

2. Some of us already have (and want) HBO through our cable provider so it's not really a solution for that situation.

I am not sure pay 33 a month for a 15 a month service is my idea of a work around. I can do without until they get it sorted

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

HBO Max on Hulu is still just regular HBO. It doesn’t have the HBO Max specific content like Braveheart, Friends, Lord of the Rings collection, or Harry Potter collection, or the HBO Max original content like Love Life or On The Record. But you can use your HBO subscription on Hulu to sign into the HBO Max apps on Chromecast, Xbox, or Smart TVs.

if you have HULU add it to your plan and you dont have to dump your Roku, you can access HBO max for the same price through the website or HULU. Just saying look for a work around before you throw something away just because you can't find or fix the problem immediately! I i have the disney+ Hulu ESPN + no add subscription and HBO Max on my Roku all because I have HULU I was able to watch all of the above and not have to buy a new device! I pay $33.00 all together for all 4 streaming services

Nope, love my Roku and wouldn’t get rid of it just for HBO. I dropped HBO instead. Whenever HBO can figure out a deal with Roku I’ll happily sign up for it again.

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

This is exactly what I did! HBO Max app on Android phone. Using Chromecast to watch all HBO Max content on my TV. I already subscribed to HBO via Hulu & had HBO Now app on my phone. Once HBO Max went live on 05/27, the app updated to HBO Max. ....been watching HBO Max on TV ever since. Thank you, Chromecast! 

More than one way to skin a cat!

HBO Max issue SOLVED!!!!

Roku won't carry the HBO Max app even though ATT has it ready to go.  Roku being greedy it seems and messing up my streaming.

Solution is so easy!  Don't buy Roku. Throw away if you have one. Get Android TV and install whatever you want from Google Play store.  Problem solved. Free your streaming from the tyranny of Roku!
