HBO Max: Stream TV & Movies for Positive User Reviews
✓ Edit: Issue Resolved - Apple TV Version BrokenAfter the most recent update the standard Apple TV scrubbing has been replaced with a version that is nearly unusable. Clicking the far right or left of the remote’s touchpad no longer skips forward/back, tapping no longer brings up the time bar, and swiping on the touchpad scrubs without the need for pausing and at a speed that makes it nearly impossible to move to an accurate time (it seems that now the width of the touch pad relates to the entire time bar so that, starting from the beginning of an episode, one swipe from left to right will take you to the end of the episode/movie). The last point causes problems because you need to swipe on the touch pad to bring up the time bar, and I’ve accidentally skipped most of the way through what I’m watching when only trying to see how much is left. This along with the removal of support for 15s skips (which is standard for any streaming service) makes it very difficult to move forward or back a short amount of time. Additionally, the Play Next Episode function is somewhat broken on both Apple TV and iOS. On Apple TV it isn’t possible to swipe to the button, and attempting to click on it seems to both pause whatever’s playing and move to the next episode, almost as if the two fields were selected at this same time. This makes it impossible to pause at the end of an episode once Next Episode has appeared, and equally impossible to move away from the next episode button..Version: 50.30.1
✓ HBO Enforces Mandatory Letterboxing for “CoNsIsTeNt ViEwInG eXpErIeNcE”EDIT: Freedom to watch content in preferred aspect ratio is restored! Pinch to zoom to full screen works again. Five stars restored; thanks for listening, HBO. Original review: There used to be a button in the bottom right corner that eliminated the black bars at the top and bottom, clipped the video, and made it full screen. This is the optimal viewing experience for me and I’ve enjoyed it that way before the update and even on HBO Go before that. It’s gone now and I’m livid. Without this feature, you do not have the freedom to choose your best viewing experience. You have no choice at all now; instead, you pay to have HBO decide for you. HBO makes you suffer without this feature because they want to foster a “consistent viewing experience across all devices”. So I guess not being able to watch content the way you prefer doesn’t qualify as a good “experience” anymore. My experience is derived from the freedom to watch the content how I like it, so to remove that freedom seems counterintuitive, foolish, and nonsensical. My friends, our preferences shouldn’t be dictated by HBO. I yearn for the day our freedom will be restored in an update because, only then, will we have the truly optimal experience we used to expect from the Home Box Office..Version: 22.214.171.124
✓ HBO reigns supremeIf the streaming services were in the military, then HBOMax would be the general of it all! First off I love the original movies and shows. 99% of the time it’s award winning in my opinion. The selection of movies they have is incredible, it’s not like most other services that give you a couple A movies and then the next 300 are low budget crappy movies. No HBO has a very wide range of of tier one movies for every genre and if you don’t want to watch a movie then have your pick at some of the greatest shows ever made. I have watched band of brothers about 17 times now along with my favorite Westworld and I love that you get this great service and not to mention same day releases of movies that are premiering in the theater with everything that I have mentioned before at a awesome price per month and I have had the service for 3 years now and it’s stayed the same so big congratulations to HBOMax for not jacking up the price like everything else is doing in the world. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants a great deal and awesome place to watch great shows and movies!!!.Version: 52.31.0
✓ A Little Polish to the DescriptionsUPDATE: I was offered a response by the developer. Thank you for your attentiveness. Rating increased by 1 star to reflect good consumer interaction. TY! I am a voracious video content consumer. I pay for several streaming services, and watch videos - movies & series - constantly. With my extensive experience, I absolutely love the HBO Max content, original and Hubs. Added to that, HBO Max, and HBO Originals in particular, are fantastic about including Audio Descriptions & other very helpful Accessibility features. Fantastic, and one of my all-time favorite streaming platforms, without a doubt. Please, please, please, make these tiny adjustments to your series episode descriptions: - include the *full* release dates of the episodes, including month & date, rather than just the year. - add in the descriptions when an episode is a season or series finale. (It's added work to run over to IMDB or The Verge to find when the last episode airs.) Thank you, and keep up the good work!! 3 stars to get eyes on the review. I'll update if/when developers respond..Version: 50.63.0
✓ Great content, problems with appI’m streaming HBO Max on a Roku Ultra and agree with others that the app could use some improvement and is kind of buggy. For me, the sign in process was a problem. I changed my password and couldn’t sign out on my Roku, the button was in settings but it wouldn’t sign me out. I had to go to the app on my phone and remove the device manually. For a premium service such as this, it could use some improvement. It streams beautifully for me, but the navigation and other functions are a little behind the other streaming services. The variety of content that you offer is very good, considering all the the hubs to the other services and new content on a regular basis. I think the price is fair compared to the other services; I signed up for an annual subscription of ad-free (actually a renewal) and got a little price break. I enjoy many shows and films, but got hooked on “The Gilded Age” and look forward to season 2. The new documentary on Arthur Ashe is excellent. If you could make some improvements to the app, this would be practically perfect..Version: 52.35.0
✓ Needs expanded screen and playback screen optionAs with everyone else, content is great, but in 2021 you should be able to have the option to: 1. Expand the screen Yes, I get that HBO wants the experience to be consistent throughout all devices, but not all devices are the same size. Even for content that clearly does not fill out any sides of the screen you are not able to expand that. Easy fix and implementation, yet HBO is too stubborn to allow it. 2. Video speed control Let people consume the content how they want to. If keeping users on your app is the goal, then give users a customizable experience. I would like to spend more time on this app, such as when I'm on my breaks at work, however given the lack of expanded full screen, I am unable to view the content as it's too small, so I don't stay on the app ***edit 2/9/22*** HBO Max has recently added expanding the screen, which is a huge option for users. Consistency seems to have improved as well. Big steps in the right direction, changing it from 1 star to 5 stars as I value adapting to customer responses..Version: 126.96.36.199
✓ Works Fine for MeI was surprised to see how low the rating was while updating the app recently (2.8 as of June 2022), and kinda feel compelled to provide a different perspective for folks. My experience with the HBO app has been totally fine, as in it does exactly what it’s supposed to and works just as well as any other streaming app I use. Just from a technical standpoint (not talking content), I read a lot about bugginess and slow loads on fast connections, but it works like a charm for me and has always been reliable. I’m using an iPhone 12 Mini with the latest iOS and good internet, not sure if that makes a difference. Given how solid HBO/Warner’s selection of shows and movies is (now I’m talking content), I wouldn’t want folks to miss out or not try it on their phones because they think the app’s gonna crash regularly. Or maybe it will for you, who knows, but I’ve been using it almost entirely on mobile for over a year and have had zero issues. Take it or leave - cheers!.Version: 52.25.0
