Remember it doesn’t get you Max, just Hbo on demand like we had before with hbo go. You’re the first that says it didn’t work. Make sure it works on your tablet or computer, make sure you set a password as there is not one by default. Then use that username and password on the hbo now app for Roku.
HBO Max pretty much sucks anyway. Raised by Wolves is all it's good for. I actually ended up getting a new TV a week ago that has HBO max on it and finally was able to access it through my Hulu subscription that I was fooled into getting thinking I would get max through Hulu. What I did accomplish through that deal was saving $3.99 a month for a year on HBO. I was paying $14.99 for hbo now Hulu HBO max deal for $11.99.
You don't need cable. If you connect a computer or a tablet or a phone up to your TV - whatever TV it is, you can stream HBO Max. Either use the App on your phone / tablet or via the Web on a computer.
