We have some shows that are watchable via HBOMAX app, but not all. Some are accessible via contour but not all. We have called twice, opened tickets, rebooted, refreshed etc. The reps we speak to have no idea. Anyone else having the same issues with shows on HBOMAX or is it just us?
I just bought HBO Max for a month to test it out, and it was flawless on my Google TV. I think the problem is the limited box hardware/firmware. They just weren't built for apps IMO.
I believe there are 3 problems in the post.
1. The OP wants equal programming on HBO channels and Max. This would be HBO issue.
2. Cable-boxes error on HBO channels. Seems limited to a neighborhood.
3. Yes! If you want to stream like a pro...buy a device engineered to stream. This ain't be no cable-box.
Where is OPs problem with HBO Max not opening? I thought it was the point of the post but don't see much discussion of it. BimmerMan mentioned they also had the problem, but that's about it. I would wonder what box everyone is using. Same one?
Yeah...the title seems misleading; however, perhaps OP has 2 problems but only explained one, and the others related to the title.
Yea. I would be much more concerned with the first mentioned problem in title. Not opening and sluggish UI is a sign of resource management problems. Like the app is using too much memory or the CPU is spiking or something. I bet people with the wireless boxes aren't having the issue.
I don't use apps on my cable-box...I have Roku for apps...and occasionally Contour will get sluggish just navigating TV programming. Contour just seems bloated with garbage.
