[OS 11.0] HBO Max Channel Loads and Shows 3 Dots

I was having the “three dots issue,” so I tried the logout and login method to fix.  No luck.  I uninstalled the HBO Max application.  Now, I can’t even get the app to install.  

I have a TCL 6 series Roku TV with the latest Roku OS.  Please advise

Re: [OS 11.0] HBO Max Channel Loads and Shows 3 Dots

Hi @RokuMary-F ,

I factory reset my TCL Roku TV, and HBO MAX is working now. 

FYI I have 

Roku TV     A114X
TCL Model     65R635
Software Version 10.5.0 Build 4210-88
Device ID S05FY07MR0TH

HBO Max version 52.20 Build 11

I had tried updating the TV software and uninstalling and reinstalling HBO Max.  I already had the latest TV software, and when I uninstalled HBO Max, I was unable to reinstall it prior to the system reset.

Cheers!

Same issue. Have tried reinstalling channel as well as restarting the Roku. Hits the HBO logo, 3 dots, and crashes to the home screen.

Hey @kclarke1

I hope you're doing well.

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

Keep us posted!


All the best,
Kariza
