OK so 1 month later and customers like myself are seeking some answers/clarity/transparency/information, etc...
HBO Max should be available as an app within X1. Peacock was made available fast, so why not HBO Max?
Ya know you can "cast" it from your phone or laptop, right? You have to use your device as the remote, but it works fine otherwise. Or is this what you object to?
I have no idea what it means to "cast" the HBO Max channel. I have been watching via my laptop via the website but I'm interested in learning when HBO Max the channel will be part of the TV line-up or as an app.
Well, August 11 has come and gone and still no HBO Max!!!
on 7/19 ccandrew above noted there is no announced date.
I got that e-mail and it confused me too. I called and the girl told me Aug. 11 it should appear on the tv on the apps page.
So, don't trust what Comcast says on the phone and don't trust what they say in their mailer in late July that said HBO Max was available on X1 NOW? But do trust the Xfinity Community Forum?
My XG1V4 last night floated an HBO MAX offer for 12$ month/12 months then 15$. I didn't grab it because I thought I'd confirm with a CHAT today the 'fine print/terms'. I'd imagine that's APP access, channels and also CableCARD owner owned equipment also. Need to confirm.
I have the 11.99 offer now I use on ATV but would prefer the Xfinity APP so long as it includes HBO MAX 'everywhere/all devices' using Xfinity credentials.
It's been 6+ months for Disney+ so I'm guessing it will be over a year for HBOMAX. Shouldn't be that difficult to do, it's not like they didn't know it was coming.
