Why is the UI for Xfinity HBO Max so terrible?
- No user data (no previously viewed, continue watching, saves, favorites, etc.)
- Painfully slow browse, select, search, etc.
- No "next episode" option??
- No "skip intro"
- No "skip recap"
- No "return to series episodes list"
- Generic rew/play/ff UI
The HBO Max app on the web app and mobile app is fantastic!
Will Xfinity fix their horrific HBO Max UI or are we stuck with it liek this?
When I want to watch something on HBO Max, I typically use my Roku. It also has the full feature set. No idea why the X1 app is so simplified, unless there is something about the deal with Comcast to prevent individualized user access.
I found this note on an HBO Max help page regarding profiles:
