I posted the full story under the CNN+ thread, but live 24/7 CNN content will be streaming on Max starting tomorrow under the heading of CNN Max

CNN Max appears on the News Beta tab. Looks like a direct feed from CNN. They just have their lower third ticker branded as CNN Max.

DirecTV is apparently mad about Max streaming CNN Max live and it violates their contract. But, CNN claims that they are using the "international feed" who's rights are less restrictive.

Re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

That show isn’t exactly new.
It started in 2016.
I watched some of it years ago and it’s not great.
Reminded me of that show real Sex in that the naked part of it isn’t the good part of the show.

Yeah I meant new to America. Couldn't believe there are six seasons of this. That's a lot of naked British people!

I swear I watched a censored version of this on TBS or some cable channel years ago.

All the baseball games via the B&R add-on have Atmos sound which makes me wonder if the video is 4K too.

Doesn’t look like it is to me.
Max has a tag on everything that is, no tag on this

I know there is no tag but I’ve gotten Atmos on every game I’ve watched since this weekend.

The legacy 4K upgrade is going away on or after December 5th. After that no 4K/HDR and only 2 streams unless you upgrade to Ultimate.

I dropped them when my promo expired a couple months ago.

Re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

I just wanted to share this money-saving tip. I just re-upped for Max for a year on the Ad-Free plan, making use of the $25 cash back offer on my Amex card (offer expires 11/5). So that works out to about $10/month.

After subscribing, I immediately started the cancellation process for my subscription. As a retention offer, they offered me $8/month for 3 months, which is applied after my current plan period ends. I accepted the offer, so my monthly rate will actually be cheaper in Nov. 2024 when my current annual plan ends. I set a reminder on my phone for Feb. 2025 when my $8/mo promo ends.

Re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

I kinda figured any BF promos would be for the ad-tier only. I guess I'm glad I renewed my ad-free annual plan when I had the AMEX $25 cash back offer.

No 4K/Atmos at all with the budget ad plan. Not worth it for me.

Re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

Max’s new additions for December and also what’s leaving. Very Meh list. No new scripted programming. Catalog titles are ho-hum

Max is removing all Looney Tunes content from the site. Got tired of paying Bugs and Daffy those tiny residual checks.

Glad that was corrected. I try to show my kid Looney Tunes, but when I do it on his child profile many eps are Blocked from Under Age viewers.
