It is but they have a lot of great content. Looking forward to when they iron out the kinks and make it available for Roku and Amazon Fire devices.

It’s really irritating as someone who was looking forward to it. They had plenty of time. If it wasn’t ready, delay it.

They certainly didn't do themselves any services by not including it on Roku.  I love the TCM content, hell watched the Errol Flynn Adventures of Robin Hood the other night.  A total classic that I haven't seen in a while.

Why not take HBOGo/Now, change the logo, add the additional content and call it HBO Max? It works perfectly, there was no need to reinvent the wheel here.

Anyway, it works fine on my Samsung Smart TV, and I've definitely been enjoying it so far.

That’s actually what they did with HBO Now. Agree they should do the same with Go. Just don’t understand how they don’t have it available on all platforms out of the gate.

Stop all the downloading!

Seriously, though. I am sick of hearing about “the next big streaming service”. I already subscribe to 3.

Also, HBO Max is a horrible name. So confusing. So dumb. I’ll stick with Netflix.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Amazon Prime

Interesting HBO Max is free with AT&T TV. As a DirecTV customer that is owned by AT&T I wonder if that would work.

I am with you.  Netflix and Prime work for me, but we did get Disney, because the grandson asked for it.  Many of you will understand that years later.

Not sure but definitely worth looking into.

Apple doesn’t have much but I’ve enjoyed most of what I’ve watched on there.

Hulu has really stepped up their game since adding ‘FX on Hulu’.

Been watching IASIP on Hulu since my wife wanted it for Little Fires Everywhere. IASIP is my new jam. Especially after an adult “brownie”. Guaranteed gigs.
