Direct TV HBO MAX or HBO NOW App?

I have HBO with Direct TV, and when I go to download the app through DirectTV, since I am already paying specifically for HBO, it seems DirectTV does not have an HBO app - not HBO MAX, HBO NOW, or even HBO GO. I log onto Direct TV to try and figure out why this is, and I am brought to AT&T for some reason so let me ask here - where can I get an HBO MAX or HBO NOW app through DirectTV. I have searched through the entire app list and did not find anything for HBO. I also have a Vizio Smart TV - and the app does not show up there either. Can anyone explain what is going on here? I am paying for HBO, and HBO has a running add on DirectTV saying to download HBO MAX, but then there is nowhere to download it through DirectTV apps or Vizio Apps. There is literally a channel on DirectTV dedicated to this running HBO MAX commercial, but then nowhere to download it. Is this app coming to Direct TV or is there something I am doing wrong?

You can’t get any HBO app through your Directv receiver. As for why you can’t find it on your Vizio tv, I will presume it’s because the tv is too old. You will need to ask Vizio why no HBO apps are available. Otherwise, you will need a separate streaming device connected to your tv. Something like an Apple TV, a Roku or firestick. As noted above, the HBO Max app is not yet available on all streaming devices but will be once HBO comes to an agreement with them.

Thank you - I saw that online, but as I tried to comment on DirectTV it kept bringing me here and I did not want to leave this question to AT&T since it pertains to DirecTV, but thank you very much..
