HBO Max (now "Max") - won't work through Cox

Today (5/23/2023) is the Big Day and HBO Max is now "Max". And now I have lost access to Max. Attempting to log in through the Max web page returns either a 404 error or a message that Max is not supported through Cox. Attempting to open the old HBO app on my Roku tells me I need to upgrade. I install the new upgrade and my only log in options are to open a new subscription.  If Cox doesn't support Max, then I will cancel my HBO subscription.

Several emails from HBO Max over the past week promised a "seamless" upgrade - just continue to watch your favorites as before. So much for that promise.

  • I still cannot get the MAX app to work on Contour or any other device.  

    It literally sends me through a loop of trying to sign in with cox, and then saying either "That provider does not exist" to  "You are already signed in" to "MAX is not available in your country(!)"  to "You are signed in and ready to go", and when I click on that, it goes back to sign in with your provider.etc, etc.  Over and over.  

    I'm very frustrated.  I'm wondering if cox is only paying to have MAX  cable channels, and not to stream on the MAX app.  If so, I will cancel and get MAX directly from the Max site.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?
