re: Is HBO just trying to piss everyone off with HBO Max?
Can someone explain to me like a 5 yo how do I get HBO Max? I have HBO through Spectrum and I have a Fire TV and Roku. My TV is LG OLED. Where do I download the app if it doesn't work on Roku or Fire? I looked on HBO's site and their instructions are shite.

You have to find the app on there (if it is) because it's not on Roku/fire

Yeah, I should’ve mentioned I checked and didn’t see anything on the TV itself. What a horridly pathetic rollout by HBO.

Seriously, Roku is a MUCH better platform than any of the TV based app support.

Seriously. I turn on my TV and the apps show the series I’m in the middle of watching as I “mouse” over them. I can go straight to the shows without opening the app.

I used this video to sideload HBOMax on my Amazon FireTV, it worked like a charm.

My understanding is that as far as Amazon goes, HBOMax just wants to have a standalone app but Amazon is saying no you can be a channel add on like all the rest.

What if the smart tv has Roku as its platform?


This is my problem. I have a Roku TV and I'm not replacing it anytime soon. I would have signed up for HBO Max Day 1. If AT&T doesn't want my money then frick them.

That’s on Prime not HBO or Roku. I have all three. HBO MAX Only works as a stand-alone app. I wish it could be integrated into Prime.

Just cancel and purchase it from HBO outright. This isn’t a difficult fix.

WebOS


I've been pleasantly surprised with WebOS. I got a new LG tv earlier this year and was expecting to have to continue using my chromecast because every smart tv I've used in the past has been garbage, but WebOS has been fast and the apps are just fine.

Yup. I bought a Hiscense Roku TV for the guest room because they are dirt cheap. I ended up putting that one in the living room and moved the more expensive, fancier brand non Roku smart tv to the guest room.

It pisses me off. Basically, you have to have an Apple TV to be able to use the service. Why advertise the service if you haven't negotiated a deal with EACH platform before you premier. Otherwise, you are just advertising frustration to potential customers.

Works fine on my PS4 that I coincidentally have hooked up to a Roku TV, watched The Kid last night on it.

Or a Fire Stick, Android TV, PlayStation 4, Samsung TV, Xbox One, Chromecast or some other method of shooting your iPhone or Android device to your TV.

I have 2 Samsung smart TVs (Granted, 5+ years old) and they suck arse so I have a firestick and Apple TV.

My Sony is from last year and has android tv. It’s by far my favorite interface and works flawlessly. Even has chromecast built in so I can cast anything I want seamlessly.
