Watching Roku Channel, Netflix, etc at different ip address

Hello, I have a Roku Express device on my tv at my home.  I also have a roku streaming stick (not sure of model) that plugs directly into the back of a different tv at a camper that I stay at on the weekends at a local lake.  I have a Roku channel subscription to watch HBO that I set up on the roku express at home last week.  My question is... can I log into my roku channel account at the lake location and different ip address and be able to watch HBO via the roku subscription on the tv and streaming stick I have at the camper?  Or do I have to have a second account and monthly subscription fee for the lake too?  I know I can watch my Netflix account from up to 3 different ip addresses, but wasn't sure how many you can stream on one account with roku channel?

Is it HBO GO or HBO NOW? I believe HBO NOW accounts can be used anywhere as long as you're in a supported country. HBO Go might have geographic restrictions.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Neither have issues. Roku Channel actually has separate HBO access than HBO NOW and Go as well. The Roku Channel access to HBO is tied directly to the Roku account. As long as the local lake is not across Country boards (like Canada), should be fine.

I'm signed in to my Roku account on my Roku and I have a subscription to HBO Max through Roku, but when I open the HBO Max channel I am not signed in.  I do not have a separate HBO Max account and it's not through my TV provider so I can't sign in.

I don't have HBO Max, but if it like the other subscriptions through Roku Pay, (subscribed through Roku), you may have to watch HBO Max through the Roku Channel. (not the HBO Max Channnel).  Launch the Roku Channel and see if your HBO Max is located there.

Otherwise maybe this support article may be of help  https://support.roku.com/article/1500000425521 (How do I watch HBO Max on my Roku streaming device?)
