Yes Love Life with Anna Kendrick. There’s a thread and trailer in it.

I may have gotten a little excited about the thought of Kendrick in a MAX series.

It's incredibly ridiculous that as of right now, HBO Max app is not going to be on Roku or Amazon devices. Seriously, AT&T is screwing this up big time.

Which makes even less sense because the email tells me the Now app will.be updated as Max tomorrow.

Anyone get HBO Max up yet? I read that it launched at Midnight Eastern. I'm on the West and nothing yet on Apple TV.

Edit: Oops. it launches at 3am ET.

No deal yet for Roku or Amazon devices.

These are the devices HBO Max will launch with on Wednesday:




I have an Apple TV 4K and a 2016 Samsung Smart TV, so I will be good launch day. The Roku is still my preferred device, but at least I'm covered.

I do have a PS4 and XBox one, but I don't stream TV and movies on them.

Ah, that’ll work. I have my XB1S hooked up in my bedroom. That’s the only time I’ll be watching it, so perfect.

Just opened HBO Now on my iPad and... nothin’. No update pending in the App Store either.

No apps up yet. I did sign in through the web browser. If you have a qualifying TV service, you can sign in with your credentials.

Re: HBO Max — Warnermedia streaming service launches May 2020

I went to the web page on my iPad to check it out. It redirects you to the hbo now app because apparently they can't get it together to update any of the apps on time. Oh well. How's the actual service?

Batwoman's 1st season is already up in the DC section. It wasn't supposed to be there until before the 2nd season started. But, I guess the pandemic changed that.

It's a nice interface.

Re: HBO Max — Warnermedia streaming service launches May 2020

Just casually looking, it looks like there is stuff missing. In the DC section, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises aren't there. Man of Steel is also not there.

I have to assume that they fell under the same deal as Disney +, some movies and shows are still licensed out to other services/networks.

The only updated app was on my XBox One S which used to HBO Now. So for those who are using your cable/satellite/IPTV credentials, you can choose to stop using HBO Go.

I ran into an annoying authentication issue too with my AT&T/DirecTV account. Fixed it and now I get HBO Max with my $10 HBO subscription through DTV.

All 8 Harry Potter movies are up. That is a surprise. :Last I heard they were licensed out to NBC. AT&T must have bought out that deal.

I forced chrome into desktop mode and was able to sing in but it won’t play the videos.

Now up on iOS for iPad, Apple TV and such. It looks like the old HBO Now app updated.

I'll give them a couple days to get the Roku mess fixed. Otherwise I'm going to cancel.
