    Sorry HBO I really love your shows, but here are the things I have issues with your App and your Xbox One version of the app (it seems like others are having a problem with this too, like Ps4) My List- this is always a great function in a streaming service. When it’s accessible... My List does not always appear in HBO Max. Additionally doesn’t not list all the things you’ve added to it when it does. This is frustrating for people who are trying to watch something they have added, only to have to search for it again. Big no no. Episode Selection- watching a show sometimes you miss something, wether you got busy around the house or fell asleep, I know I can find the episodes.. if I search for it again. But unlike other apps I can’t select another episode from the episode I’m in. For example. Netflix on the Xbox, or PlayStation. While watching an episode you can hit (X on Xbox) (square on PS) to view the episode list. Why do I need to search it again. All in all I respect the Swift Roll-Out for HBO Max, and switching the subscriptions from HBO to HBO Max. But the Max App for Console and Phone is MISSING vital features to a streaming service. I highly suggest fixing these issues because I don’t want to see your app use slow down or disappear all together. Even after a boost in advertisements, not having these functions could end the popularity of your service. Please consider these thoughts and I hope to look forward to these changes.

    The app seems to work for the most part, but I don’t like a few things: it seems weird that when I click on something in the continue watching section, there is no way for me to pick another episode from there. It seemed I had to go to the search option to find the show and THEN I could pick the episode I wanted, rather than where I left off (I often fall asleep while it’s on auto play and have to go back.) Also, it keeps giving me the cellular warning over and over, even tho I’ve turned that fiction off in the settings. One time it changed my setting for streaming with cellular data, and wouldn’t play at all until I switched the setting back. So weird. One more comment, why does the iPhone app allow you to jump ahead 15 seconds but the browser version on my computer does not? All in all the app is okay, and I like the extra content as compared to HBO now. But why the separate version of HBO? Just come out with one for goodness sake!

  • Broken downloads feature Sep 2, 2020

    By Shardik
    For the most part, this is a decent app. The content is great, of course. Download management is poorly designed. Currently you must click edit, then scroll through your list, X out the download you don’t want, then scroll back up and click Done. It’s a lot of real estate to go through. Secondly, downloads don’t play on their own off of the phone unless the phone is taken off network. So if I have a slow or poor internet connection, shows don’t play immediately or at all, and I suspect that they’re eating data instead of playing off of my phone. Downloads only play well in these circumstances if I set the phone to Airplane mode. Finally, the Renew option doesn’t work. If I click on the exclamation point to renew, I get a dialog to Renew or Cancel. Click on Renew and nothing happens; no shows or movies renew. I can only get them back if I delete and redownload them. Like I said, it’s a decent app, but this part proves to be a frustrating experience.

    I wish I could give this a star or Maybe 2, But when my parents want to watch something in Spanish they have to go to Latino to do so but what if they don’t want to watch the stuff there what if they want to see for say ford v Ferrari they you don’t get the option to hear the audio in Spanish and can’t even get subtitles to even at least read what they say translated in English to Spanish and/or audio. On a side not please get more of the best movies Warner’s media has made not some of these titles that were made like 30 years before I was born apps like these are usually attracting the younger crowed and at times (like my parents) get some time off work to watch a movie with there kids (like mine who unfortunately don’t fluently speak or understand English[i guess that might be the reason I’m writing this because I want to watch a movie with my parents without telling them every now and then what they are talking about/say])

    Overall it’s an amazing app, you couldn’t possibly run out of content to watch.. there’s one problem I’ve ran into to, that’s downloading movies or videos often times when the app is in the background or if the phone locks it destroys all progress coming back to see it’s not downloaded and having to find the movie or show again and download it.. you have to literally stay on the page to keep it there so it’s a shame however once done it does stay downloaded. If could please fix this I’d consider going from my trial and to full membership. However I feel my membership has been ruined by that because I was gonna use it for a week away into a area with hardly data or wifi.. it’s not likely I could get another chance either but good app just please fix that and I may consider coming back and buying a full membership

  • Great content! App is crap... Jun 12, 2020

    By newb910
    I love the content they have. Friends, Fresh Prince, and Big Bang are all great shows from over the decades. They also have a nice selection of movies. At the moment, their “Max” originals are lacking but it’s new so I will give them time. The issue I have is that AT&T has never put out an app that isn’t full of frustrating glitches. This hasn’t changed with HBO Max. For example, most of the time when starting a show or movie, it gets stuck on buffering and no matter how long you wait it will not play. I end up having to go out and restart the show several times. The same thing happens when it auto plays the next episode. Then, when the show does start playing, sometimes it’s a completely different episode than the one I selected. For a company who has massive resources, there’s no excuse for putting out an app that doesn’t accomplish the one thing it’s designed to do. At least AT&T is generous enough to include HBO Max with their unlimited elite plan. That is the only reason I put up with these issues otherwise I wouldn’t waste my money. Update: Most of my streaming’s problems are when I’m connected to my TV through the digital AV connector. It seems when I watch movies or series directly on the iPad it’s not as glitchy.

    Great content, terrible app. I downloaded it so that I could rewatch Friends, figuring I'd pay for one month and maybe stay subscribed if I liked it. Good news is that the content works great. Bad news is, everything else was terrible. The user interface doesn't make much sense, and the app is overall clunky and hard to use. I also find the app ugly, and coming from Netflix, this feels much less streamlined and usable.

  • Great idea but poor execution Jun 12, 2020

    By Isome2000
    I love the idea of HBO streaming service. Since I’m a Direct TV customer I was even more excited because it’s included for no extra charge. However, I’m very disappointed to find that not only is there a maximum download limit for the entire household of 30 downloads and worst of all it seems like every time you leave the app screen it pauses your downloads. Perhaps it’s just me but even when I leave the app open in the background while I text or check email I go back to the app screen to find everything was paused while I multitasked. The 30 downloads per household maximum, if you are using all 5 profiles, really limits your ability to download much depending on what the other users download for themselves and frankly if the app can’t/won’t download your selections if you leave it open in the background so you can multitask it will take so long for people like myself to download our selections it becomes counterproductive and makes it far quicker and more efficient to simply buy the series you’re interested. I sincerely hope the app improves as time goes on, as I recognize that it is new, because I love the idea but hate the poor execution.

    The frame rate for all videos is about 15 or 20. I can't even watch one video. It is like watching really fast pictures when sound is a head of the video! Why the subscription is so high for such a low quality!! I canceled Disney+, Hulu and Netflix for this. I guess I will go back to them. My review was some how removed wow! They told me to contact support but their support page doesn't even work!

    Good shows. Bad app. My biggest frustration is downloaded content. The app simply doesn't function without internet connectivity. I can't even navigate to the download section without it telling me there is no network. Also. Downloaded content streams when connected to a network, even when selected from the downloads list. Downloads buffer and cut out when I lose signal. Again, even when played from the download list.

    I didn’t have a problem with logging in with my hbo now information I just wish it was available on roku tv maybe in the future. At least it’s available on all my iOS devices, xbox one s & playstation 4 the only bit of a downside no 4K HDR10 content. I was glad to find out I can watch og teen titans, rick & morty, impractical jokers, the boondocks, fresh prince of bel air, adventure time, tom & jerry, also all seven films of harry potter. The hbo max hubs include dc, sesame workshop, tcm (turner classic movies) along with studio ghibli, cartoon network collection, adult swim collection, crunchyroll collection & looney tunes. My overall experience is great I still enjoy it i’ll definitely be keeping my hbo max subscription because they’re just gonna add more content next year & i’m looking forward to it all.

  • Could use more content, but loving it 📺 Jul 10, 2020

    By AfflictionKing
    When I saw this app being announced, I wasn’t onboard on getting it. But when I saw this tweet from Cartoon Network that there were bringing some classics, I had to at least give it a try. So I downloaded, scroll through everything and I was like wowed on the contents from Cartoon Network, adult swim, crunchy roll, DC comics, and so on... it was like ultimate app to have if you’re a 90’s baby lol. My only minor complaint is that there’s not that much content from Cartoon Network like: Ed, Edd, n Eddy, the grim adventure of Billy & Mandy, courage the cowardly dog and so on.. same goes from some the other channels.... which was actually the very reason I decided to get it, since those shows were being teased in. But I understand could be some licensing thing and I do hope more and more content could be added. I am enjoying this and can’t wait for Harley Quinn

  • Pretty Good Aug 12, 2020

    By Sassy_mcRaffy
    Just downloaded this as my subscription was included with my new phone plan. It’s so great so far but I feel like it’s still a bit lacking. Unlike other streaming services the content here isn’t diluted with a bunch of nothing, all the series here look and feel quality. This is especially true considering when browsing the associated channels. However the series amount does seem a bit limited, especially in the horror and international sections. I’d like to see more genres like Mexican soap operas and asian dramas be included. On the topic of genre they have a sizable anime selection so I find it a bit strange that they don’t have that as a category yet. And for viewing series I wish they included a time for the individual episodes so you’d know how long the show is before you start it. Overall great new app and I’m excited to see how it develops.

  • It's okay, but could be better Jul 29, 2020

    By sievrdt
    First of all – great choice of titles, kudos to HBO for winning over the shows like South Park and Friends along with the all-time favorite HBO originals! As for the app itself – the UI/UX is not friendly at all. E.g. traditionally on iOS there's a back button in the upper left-hand corner; it is here too, except that only the left half of that button takes you back, and the right half takes you to the list of episodes... I guess it's convenient, but it's really counterintuitive. Same thing with the preview pictures – tap in the middle takes you to the episode's page, but tap in the corner starts playing immediately. Just make buttons look like buttons, and if it's two buttons, make them look like two buttons – don't re-invent the wheel. Also, please add support for iPad's Smart Keyboard – it shouldn't be too hard.

    It's a hit and miss. Good shows, but you can't select the episodes. There's a lot to watch, but only on a wifi connection. Also HBO max doesn't seem to be available on the my tv apps. There's quite a few bugs to fix before it's great. Just judging by the "tell us more options", this comment will be ignored. It's not worth a ATT subscription.

  • Forced into HBO Max Jul 8, 2020

    By AshB1717
    I liked HBO go and I used it all the time. In the middle of an episode I paused suddenly it was no longer supported and I was forced to download HBO Max. None on the items on My Lis transferred and I wasn’t even sure what season I was on by this point. I can’t stand the new look. It’s trying to copy the appearance of other online companies and I don’t care for their look either. I don’t enjoy the scroll screen when I search for shows/movies or even just my list. I preferred the screen showing 6 movies and then it moves up. For some reason the side scroll makes me sick and sets off migraines. I’ve stopped using the other companies bc of it and I was happy with the other format you provided. Either I’m going to have to know what I was specifically, let my husband search, or move on somewhere else. I don’t enjoy being forced out of something I have grown accustomed to and I felt was way more user friendly.

    As many other reviews have mentioned content is great, app is terrible. No picture in picture, which netflix and YouTube both do seamlessly. If you are bingeing, you'll have to watch the "next time on..." the credits and the "previously on" in-between each episode, which netflix found a way to skip over a long time ago. I cast to my TV and Netflix and YouTube and Hulu all have a leg-up here, too. HBO will disappear from the drop-down menu. Changing volume, pause, ff, etc all easier on other apps

    I cast HBO Max to my TV using Chromecast. As soon as my phone screen goes to sleep, I can no longer rewind, pause, or stop what I am casting within the app. The only way to regain control is to stop casting and reconnect or close and reopen the app. Then once my phone goes to sleep again, if I miss something and need to rewind I must go through this process all over again. App constantly says I am offline and need to reconnect when my phone is on wifi with a strong signal.

It claims I'm not a subscriber yet I can stream HBO through my Xfinity stream app. Sign in with provider, not given a chance to enter credentials.

  • Poorly considered app May 31, 2020

    By Christopher91206
    1) Auto Play: you can’t turn it off, it won’t turn itself off. If you fall asleep watching a series, it will play all night. Good lock finding where you left off 2) If you watch a series that is not on your “list,” it’s hard to get back to it without using the search function. “Continue Watching” takes you back to the last episode of the series you finished watching with no apparent pathway to choose an episode from the series. (So from the “continue Watching” menu, if you last watched Episode 5 of a series, it’s easy to rewatch Episode 5, but not so easy to get to episode 6.) 3) The thing I hate about Netflix is that it is hard to find content—there’s so much there that you’re not seeing. Netflix at least tried to cater to your likes, to give a selection based on your viewing preferences, but this basic issue of streaming services was made worse with HBO Max. They seem to offer you some basic selections, and there’s no real education about what’s there. 4) Searching movies by genre is convoluted. The page never loads all the way. It loads 12-15 selections then stops. If I Choose a movie, then back out of that screen, it will load a few more movies, but finding material is a nightmare, the bigger the catalog, the worse the problem. 5) No Roku. I can’t use it in my living room. (As usable as it is.) I can’t believe this is the best effort of one of the biggest media companies on the planet.

    Congratulations, HBO Max you are the newest nominee my worst apps list. I can't use the skip button at the beginning of shows because error massage. I let the intro play and 30 seconds later error message. I skip to the point I want watch and error message. Let me just download the episodes (clicks download) and the app crashes. This app is worst than my AT&T cellular reception. The devs are either just here for a paycheck or (my favorite) HBO doesn't care to reach the Max.
