Re: Workaround for HBO Max

Jump to solution

Yes. Roku devices are worthless if you want to see HBO Max or Peacock.

 

Don't buy them anymore, and don't tell anyone else to buy them either!

 

That cheap Google Chromecast might be the best solution now since the corporate suits can't decide who gets to get our money more. Which one of them needs a new yacht! Screw 'em all. Just pirate it all at this point. If they don't want to let us pay to see it then they leave us no other choice.

 

It's by their hands this must be done. Greedy fools.

If you have a gaming device? Xbox one and what not ? Use your hulu info on the HBO Max app. Like choosing cable providers! Hulu is on the list and HBO Max is the one advertised not the hbo on Hulu! Hbo Max is not on Hulu ! App needs to be added to Roku!

I don't have Xbox or Hulu. If there's something I need to see, particularly on a full-sized screen, I'll use the HBO Max app on my phone and cast it to my Roku device.

It's pretty simple really, just don't give them your money. I don't.

Seems to me Roku is just like the cable I cut. I switched to apps to have more control over choices, and that’s pretty much gone now. Time to find a new device or TV. Seems drastic in the short run, but this is just the writing on the wall. The recent Peacock and HBO Max feels a lot like what happened to cable providers. Seems unnecessary to stick to a service/device that can’t deliver.

It's not Roku, it's WarnerMedia and Comcast, who actually are the cable you cut.

no it's not ... you use your Hulu credentials on the HBO app which is currently not on Roku so you have to watch it on your computer device or phone ... I think that is deceitful on Hulu's end since the whole reason to subscribe to it is to watch it on the TV screen. grrr
