With cable, you have to remember where the HBO channels are then schedule a DVR or catch it live. I don't see that as easier than remembering to open a different app when you want to watch HBO. Now once they are recorded, they are all in one place, so I can kind of understand that if someone doesn't do their own recording.
My parents say cumbersome, and while in the greater scope of it all, we're just talking switching apps, for much older people, cable is an service that provides everything in one place. No streaming service (even Roku) has mastered that one - yet.

I noticed this morning that all five seasons of Head of the Class are out there. Now, there's a show I haven't thought of in a while.

Still amazing to me that Dan Schneider is (or at least was) the most successful alum of that show.

Terrific finale too.

You've never seen Person of Interest? Yeah It was probably one of the best CBS dramas of the last decade and one of the very few CBS shows that actually got talked about here.

It was previously on Netflix for the last 5 plus years. Surprised it not even crossed your mind to check out.

Now that it's on HBO Max, I absolutely think you should check it out.

I binged it a couple of years ago and really liked it. It starts off kind of episodic, with the good guys identifying someone new each week who is in danger and saving them. But it becomes more and more serialized over time, telling one big story. That made it a good binge show because when you finish one episode you want to watch another right away to find out what happens next.

I’d like to see Person of Interest, and I also saw they added Pushing Daisies, which I started but got distracted from for some reason.

Dammit! Where's the list of shows coming and going? I went to watch Ocean's 11 (1960) for the 3rd or 4th time in as many weeks last night and it was gone.

Like most services, they don't really give you a comprehensive list but they do have a "Just Added" and "Last Chance" section in the menus. Most of the stuff licensed for the HBO channel itself rotates out at the end of the month.

The entire director's cuts of the Saw collection minus Jigsaw are on HBO Max.

I started watching the 1st Saw last night, which I hadn't seen in at least 12-13 years.

Re: HBO Max Warnermedia streaming service launches May 2020

Noticed a minor bug on HBO Max.

If you stream an alternate cut of a movie, which is an extra, the movie will not pick up where you left off in case you have to stop.

It's happened to me a few times already. I tried to stream the director's cut of Saw II and stopped after 30 minutes and when I tried to resume, it started all over again. Same with when I tried the director's cut of Saw III. I guess it's because it's not the main feature?

Trying adding the alternate cut to your watch list. It doesn't stay in the continue watching section, but it should hold the position in the watch list.

What app were you using? On Android TV, I did this just last week with Doctor Sleep Director's Cut and I'm 99% certain it picked up where I left off. I initiated the second session directly from the extra features->director's cut selection, not from the main feature selection. The only oddity was that it didn't show up in my "Continue Watching" section.

Re: HBO Max Warnermedia streaming service launches May 2020

Anyone know anything about this?

The CW In Talks With HBO Max To Co-Finance Original Shows


The CW is reportedly in talks with HBO Max to co-finance some original shows this summer.

When the first trailer for Superman and Lois hit, many were shocked by the high production value that was more in line with the DC Universe shows than what we’ve typically seen on The CW. Now that HBO Max has become the streaming home of The CWverse along with all the other shows from the network, it sounds like The CW is looking to up the budget.


Deadline reports that The CW is in talks with HBO Max to co-finance original shows for this summer. The deal would allow episodes to premiere on The CW and be available on HBO Max the next day. It’s unclear if this deal will affect any of the current DC shows on The CW, or if it’s referring to a brand-new series that hasn’t been announced yet.
