Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

I would dump HBO before I dumped my Roku.

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

actually you can only get HBO through Hulu it has HBO Max but you cannot get the extra content unless you access HBO Max through the app which if you have a Roku TV you have to get the app from Roku it doesn't exist. So currently if you subscribe to HBO Max through Hulu you can only get the movies not the extra content but you can watch HBO Max on the internet on your computer or your phone

The problem is HBO MaX on hulu is limited access, you DO qualify for HBO MAX if its added but in order to watch original series like Love Life or Friends all of the fun new stuff you DO have to download the Max app and sign in thru Hulu

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

Can you please explain a little more clearly? I’m not sure I understand. I have Hulu on my Roku Ultra. So do I sign up for HBO max on My Hulu app? Do you watch hbo max through Hulu or download an app?

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

The hulu Hbox max doesn't have everything tho. I can't find any of the origianl programing and there are other shows that are in the HBO max app that are not available on the HULU HBO MAX add on.

Re: HBO Max can be accessed on your ROKU

That’s pretty much what I thought. Thank you for the confirmation of that. I want to have access to Friends and definitely some upcoming new programming so I guess I will have to wait until Roku works it out. I personally do not want to watch on my computer and so if Roku and HBO max never figure it out, I won’t ever be getting HBO Max. These financial issues remind me of how sometimes my channels on DirectTV go black when the station wants more money. I actually didn’t know Roku gets a cut from each app that is there though. So how does that work for apps like CW which are free from the start? It’s all so confusing... ugh.

Maybe so but you have to convert your commercial free Hulu to Hulu with commercials. That’s a big deal breaker because I hate sitting thru commercials on TV.

I already cancelled my HBO now account and let HBO know to let me know when the ROKU app drops. Just hasn’t been the same since GOT ended.

Check your hulu, they are giving me a free preview of the hbo max add until June 26. That's how I figured out so much content was missing. Not impressed at all, It looks like it's just the content on hbo now.
