HBO Max is not available on Roku. 😡
The following devices are supported by HBO Max. If a device is supported, you'll find the HBO Max app in the app store.
Don't mess with old people. The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.
Right now Roku and AT&T are "negotiating" for AT&T to get the right to have the HBO Max app on Roku. (Similar negotiations are going on between AT&T and Amazon over getting placement on Amazon Fire TV/Stick.) We don't know the details (companies almost never divulge those) but basically Roku (and Amazon) are demanding more money (in a variety of ways/forms) than AT&T is willing to part with to get the app placed. Roku and Amazon apparently feel that since they control the majority of the streaming hardware market between them, they have the power in the negotiation - that AT&T needs them more than they need AT&T. They are likely correct in this. AT&T, on the other hand, feels it is their content and there is a limit to how big a cut of the take they are willing to give up. This seems a valid concern on their part. Based on that, the impasse could go on a while...
How can we improve?
