Max had its official launch yesterday, and there's a limited selection of Superman entertainment for fans who have subscribed to the digital streaming service. If you're itching to penny up for another streaming service, HBO Max does seem to have a good amount of content, especially movies.
The launch slate includes an array of originals such as Anna Kendrick-starring scripted comedy Love Life, feature documentary On The Record and thousands of library series ranging from Friends to The Big Bang Theory. What is known is that, according to Amazon, almost 5 million HBO subscribers now access the premium service through Prime Video Channels.
After the first login, you need to tap on "Access All of HBO Max" in order to get access to all the shows.
Users of HBO's existing HBO Now service will also receive a free upgrade, but only if they are billed directly through HBO rather than through a third party such as Amazon Prime or Apple.
Apple's TV channels were first launched previous year as a way to view content from many different service providers in a single app, meaning you wouldn't have to move between different third-party apps to watch different content. But you can still Cast to your TV which runs either Chromecast, Roku or Android TV.
A deal was also reached Wednesday to bring HBO Max to Comcast's Xfinity customers who already subscribe to the linear channel. For example, users attempting to access Looney Tunes cartoons in Channels are directed to download HBO Max via the App Store.
The HBO Max suffers from some shortcomings or drawbacks.
HBO Go is free with an HBO subscription, requiring a log-in via your TV provider. Secondly, HBO Max boasts of very little original programming and none of the shows are available in 4K.
You can now chill out, maxin', relaxin' all cool on the couch streaming "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" on HBO Max.
