Just added to my YTTV account but I'm working today. Anyone had a chance to check it out yet?
I took a look at it this morning. Ton of content, but FYI you can't access it via Roku or Amazon Fire devices. Which blows my mind since that's like 40% of the market lol
There's a 7-day trial
I already have HBO Now, do I need this?
So HBO has 3 different streaming platforms now?
The Ringer had a long summary article yesterday... it appears if you have HBO you should get HBO Max. Not 100% on that yet.
"So to the average consumer, “HBO Max” means three things: original content, both movies and TV shows; a prodigious back catalog sourced from WarnerMedia’s many subdivisions; and HBO proper. Subscribers to HBO’s stand-alone streaming app HBO Now should be upgraded automatically, while those who get the channel as part of their streaming package can upgrade relatively easily, unless their provider—Comcast, for example—hasn’t struck a deal with AT&T yet. "
Hopefully this helps. It is confusing
No, your app should automatically update to HBO Max
It won't if you have a Roku or Amazon Fire device
and if you access HBO apps via Mediacom, they are not provider offering yet.
True, but you can access on those devices through other apps (YTTV, Prime, etc.)
This is what AT&T does: Takes a simple product and makes it too complicated. (See DirecTV.) I'll be shocked if they don't run HBO into the ground before it's said and done, but heard they're open to selling it so we'll see what happens.
Not sure on that, the article I read just listed specific devices, but not services (like your YTTV). I pay for HBO outside of a service (so I had NOW previously), so I was able to access HBO Max through my PS4, but couldn't through my Amazon Fire TV
I'm confused. Is it a channel on TTTV? How is it integrated with Prime?
I don't believe that is true. I've never been able to stream HBO content through the YTTV app.
"YouTube TV: HBO Max will be available as an add-on to YouTube TV customers at launch; users must log in separately to an HBO Max app on a supported platform."
I got the prompt on Hulu today, so it looks like you can stream via Roku that way.
2000-I'm so tired of paying $75/month to the cable companies. I want to pick out the channels I want to watch and only pay for them. I can't wait until streaming takes care of this.
YouTube TV $50/month
Disney +$7 month
$10 extra month for your internet because you're hitting your data limits.
We've come so far....
The regular HBO content can be accessed through the Hulu app but the HBO Max content can only be accessed through the HBO Max app. It's pretty f'd up.
"HBO content available via Hulu. Additional content only available via HBO Max app."
I was told cutting the cord would make things easier.
It's a classic AT&T move. They are the worst.
