Re: HBO Max issue SOLVED!!!!

HBO totally botched the launch.  No 4K, little new product, and no contracts in place with Roku or Amazon.  Whoever's in charge should be fired.  I subscribed with the introductory offer of $11.95/month but I can't watch it on Roku.  I just cancelled.  When they get it together, I will resubscribe either with Roku or with YouTube TV.

Very **bleep** rollout.  Not on two of the biggest services, and I did the same as you, subbed abd turned right around and dropped it  Once they finish arguing and show up on Roku, they have me back

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

I tried this, but I couldn’t access everything that’s offered through the hbo Max app, like the studio ghibli content Smiley Sad

Re: HBO Max issue SOLVED!!!!

I would say HBO is being greedy. They think they have the same value as Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. They don't. I didn't even realize HBO Max was coming until I logged into my ATT account and saw that I get HBO Max free because of my Internet account. I started hearing rumors about Disney+ almost a year ahead, and at this point there's no way HBO Max can be compared to Disney+, let alone Netflix or Hulu. The smart thing to do would be consolidate all content under HBO Max (right now it's not), take a slightly lesser deal, and promote like crazy so when renewal time rolls around you actually have a bargaining position. If I didn't get it free I wouldn't even be thinking about HBO Max. I like having access to all the Harry Potter movies, the original Scooby Doo, Where Are You? and a few other things, but there is not enough there to replace Netflix or Hulu, and definitely not enough to justify adding another $15 streaming service.

I've said it before, HBO Max needs Roku a lot more than Roku needs HBO Max.

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

Via hulu you only get the HBO content- not all the “extra” stuff they added to the catalog via licensing. Not a true workaround.

I have 4 ROKU TVs and I can get MAX through Direct TV.  Unless you did not catch Harry Potter, Friends or the Sopranos 10 years ago or through Netflix.. this app offers nothing new.

You’d be missing their “maxx originals” now and future, as well as anything in the new licensed content that may be of interest.
