HBO MAX is live today. The increase in content over HBO Now feels very significant, so it seems like a great deal at the same price. My only gripe so far is organization. When you select a movie or show (at least on the mobile app), there are no recommendations of similar movies, or movies by the same director, same genre, etc. That would be a great addition.

There are a bunch of Godzilla movies :thumbsup:

The fuck? I am just now discovering that it's not available on Roku, where I watch TV 90% of the time: https://www.cnet.com/news/hbo-max-is-he ... n-fire-tv/

No Roku and no Amazon? That's rough. Am I wrong in estimating how popular these two things are? Is this not a big miss for them at launch?

Guess I'm watching on the computer for now. Hopefully they negotiate the financials soon on at least one of those. Can't wait to dig into the Turner Classics on there.

I wasn't planning on jumping on that, but someone let me know when it's on Roku, cuz I definitely ain't moving until it's there.

A bit off topic, but how is Roku compared to Apple TV? We don’t have Roku here.

Our Apple box is kind of old but our Roku has a much better picture.

I was the one asking, but older probably does make a difference. I bought a new Apple TV 4K at the start of the year, and the picture is excellent (have not tried Roku though).

I have a Roku and I could access it it through YouTube TV.

I'm still on the fence, because I initially thought it was going to be HBO and Cinemax, but apparently Cinemax is $10 more.

Yeah - I have an older one and two of the 4k ones, and there is obviously a difference. I'm sure Roku & Amazon have good products too, but the Apple 4K TV is excellent (replaced an old Roku with one of them).

It’s not available on the Firestick, either. I put it on my phone, but so far, that’s all I can watch it on.

I'm excited to see where this new Anna Kendo Kendrick show goes. It's a total rom-com, with all that entails. But I'm hoping it takes some interesting turns. We'll see.

Right now the show is just mac and cheese. But like I never turn down mac and cheese, y'know.
