"HBO Max (05/27/2020, Warner Media)"


          

I haven't downloaded the APP but if asked right now I know this:
They have a new show called Space Force with Steve Carrell.

They have Big Bang Theory and Friends.

Literally that's all I know.

I have HBO - I'm not sure if I get this for free. (I also have AT&T phone, same question.)

Let's use this post to document our journey.

Search Party was one of the few shows on cable i watched. years after the last season finale without a cancellation, i kept wondering where the next season was and finally checked on it a few days ago. it's been moved from TBS to this, scheduled for release this summer. The Detour on the same network was another show i liked that was officially canceled but was right away hoped to continue on here. i haven't seen any confirmation that it was picked up. TBS' sister station, TNT, had another show i liked, The Alienist. again, i kept wondering where the next season was because despite appearing to be a limited series it was renewed for a second season long ago and at one of the award shows at the top of the year dakota fanning was introduced as from the upcoming season named something or other. i'm expecting this to get moved to hbo max to build up its content to compete with netflix, prime, hulu, and apple.

same with "fx on hulu." i'd love to watch Devs, etc. i can't *justify* another streaming service even if i can afford it, simply because there isn't enough time to watch what i want to watch now to get sucked into original programming on another streamer. it irritates me that fx would produce quality programming and make it exclusive to a streaming service. i don't understand why if they can't/won't air it then at least make it part of their video on demand and fx app for people who are paying to subscribe to their channel.

every media company getting into the streaming game signals the end for scripted basic cable shows more so than network tv, which was already a wasteland but won't run out of junk that people who watch network tv will pass the time with.

Obviously their own catalog is there.

If you have HBO Now, you just need to update the app to Max and your good.

I'm hype for Fresh Prince, and the fact that everything is available for download.

They have a lot of franchises on deck to start, Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter, Predator, Godzilla (looks like ALL of Godzilla, Die Hard, the DC films, etc, and you get Adult Swim/Cartoon Network content.

It's a pretty solid launch slate, though Rick & Morty, Boondocks, South Park (coming in June) have been on Hulu, but making them available for download is a big bonus.

They certainly appear to have most of the first set of Toho. I was hoping for stuff like Shin Godzilla, but there are probably all sorts of complicated rights issue for all the different films.

Adult Swim selection looks kind of limited (I think there's like 8 titles), but hopefully that will grow.

more classic and foreign films than I imagined. they have a good mix of Chaplin, Bergman, Godard, Ozu, etc.

also it's not yet on Roku but I expect that to change within June.

I hadn't heard that it was go to be available. Already watched "Duck Amok."

Their "season" set-up for them is weird, but from what I understand, it goes by year. Obviously they don't have all the 1,000 or so shorts up there yet, but I can still see it being a little cumbersome sifting through what they got to find something specific. I really would like to watch "Great Piggy Bank Robbery" later on.

Happy for all the "franchise" packages, even if they're streching things a bit with Police Academy and Critters.

I also saw that they have the LOTR movies, but I noticed that like the middle Hobbit movie is missing. I mean, I have no intention of watching the Hobbit trilogy again, but it seemed weird. They do have that animated Hobbit movie from the 1970s. Listened to that on record all the damn time in my younger years.

But yeah, I need a bit of time to really explore what's available.

and if you don't, it's the same price as HBO (for now), although that may vary from a cable bundle

That's it.

If you had HBO Now (that's the one you pay for online - like you don't have cable) or HBO Go (that's the one you get if you have HBO with cable/satellite - you use the username/credentials your cable/satellite company) on Thursday you had X amount of things to watch.

HBO Max is those same X amount of things PLUS more things.

Now, if you had HBO as an Amazon Prime Video channel it doesn't transfer.

If you have HBO on Apple TV as a channel - it does not transfer.

If you had HBO NOW on Roku as a channel - it does not transfer.

the library is great, but they completely fucked up by launching without a Roku deal. why advertise when so many people cannot access it? hell, it even alienates the HBO Now subscribers who are on Roku and wondering why they don't get the Max upgrade.

I have to move my PS4 between my bedroom and my living room and it blows my mind how the LG Store can have every streaming app EXCEPT anything HBO related.

HBO Max itself is pretty decent and pretty buggy. I rewatched Thrones and couldn't watch the first episode of season 6, small annoyances.

and I don't understand why they're taking away all of the big DC titles on 7/1

between no Roku and no good superhero stuff after July, this is useless to my kids. And it's a shame too because it's got a fantastic library. My daughter and I have watched the Tim Burton's first Batman three times in the last three weeks and she's going to be upset when they get rid of it.

In response to Reply # 20


  

          

Apparently there's a bunch of JL and Batman content coming in July, but the majority of the DC media, animated and live action, are on the other service. I almost see them folding them into one thing, or bringing the DCU stuff to HBO Max and discounting the DCU membership, but it's a mess either way.

I'd love to have the DCAU in one place, but that's the biggest (and probably only at this point) reason I'd want a DCU subscription. I have copies of B:TAS, JL and JLU on my server in various formats and quality so I could scratch the itch that way, but still...

In every version ever - he's just a lame character.

New season is less wacky - well at least until the last half of tonight's episode.

They need to have more wacky and less "my life is awful" - but season 1 was excellent.
