Re: HBO Max app stuck on three dot loading screen

Hi @Mrw429

Welcome to the Roku Community. 

We'd like to know more about the issue you are experiencing. When did the issue start? Does the issue only occur on this specific channel or all channels on your Roku device? What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far to try to resolve the issue?

Did you restart your Roku device before re-installing the channel? That step is crucial when performing troubleshooting. If you haven't tried the suggested order (remove > restart > re-install), we would recommend giving it a shot once again. We also suggest doing the restart from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > Power (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step.) > System restart.

Please keep us posted on what you find out.

Re: HBO Max app stuck on three dot loading screen

I am having the same issue!! I’ve deleted and reinstall the app, I have restarted my system multiple times, nothing is working! It just pops up a blank screen, shows three dots, and then it goes black and stays like that
