HBO Max APP availability in US


Recommended Posts

I've been waiting for the HBO app to appear on the list for a while now.  I figured it was a licensing issue and would clear once ROKU and Fire were resolved.  When that was done.  Then I Youtube searched and found a video that had the HBO Max app available outside the US

.  Any thoughts how to get HBO Max in the US or to communicate directly with WEBOS?  Thanks to all in advance.

I am on my third LG big screen since 2017...all excellent, especially the new 77" OLED-CX.  NONE allow the HBO MAX app (nor HBO GO, etc. previously).  So, I purchased a 4K Dolby Vision Firestick (for HBO GO in January 2019). Worked well. Then, HBO says, "No GO, only MAX."  Firestick says, "No GO for MAX." WTF? After chatting with HBO customer service for nearly an hour, we realize there are "corporate complications." With MAX struggling to launch, Firestick was allowed to keep GO going until they could handle MAX. In the meantime, I still wanted MAX and all the extras for the same price as GO. So, I choked hard and purchased an AppleTV 4K 8GB Dolby Vision unit. I hate Apple, but, I have got to admit, it is sweeter and smoother than the Firestick, with a much more elegant interface. Both units want to sell you shit, but you can mentally filter that out.  I watch on the AppleTV (you get the AppleTV+ streaming service free for a year...Ted Lasso is FUN! - other good shows, too). Of course, six months after buying the Apple, Amazon worked out things with HBO/Warner and now the Firestick accommodates the MAX app. I still prefer the Apple experience (and I wish I didn't).

Note: I have ALL the streaming services and HBO is still the king of the premium TV series. However, all those great legacy shows (available both a cable subscription (ick) and from MAX (GO had 'em, too) are in HD - 5.1 ONLY. Fine looking and sounding, but old news. With HBO MAX, they are taking it to the MAX - new movies and shows are in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. Compressed, yes, but it shan't be too long before we get uncompressed streams (maybe at a higher price). If you have a system like mine (13 discreet audio channels/amps/speakers), properly placed and set-up...with uncompressed DV & DA, no current movie theatre competes, as they have to entertain hundreds of guests, compromising their systems. I have seen hundreds of films on a real IMAX (Irvine/LA) and full-blown Dolby Theatre (best all-around - IMAX* has harsh, Klipsch-like horns, poorly placed.). They just can't compete with an OLED Big Screen and high-end home audio.

 

Thus, if you really want HBO MAX (and you won't regret it), and you can afford the AppleTV, get it. Else, wait until the next Prime Day (if you have Amazon Prime), and get the 4K DV Firestick on the cheap.

*Visually, films shot in IMAX 70 mm on IMAX cameras (especially 3D like Polar Express), are second to none (Nolan had his own techs set-up and run Dunkirk on the Irvine, CA IMAX - OMG!)

      In the past 16 months, the face mask has become a necessity – as well as an accessory – worn by billions of people across the globe. While effective, it’s no secret that face masks worn for extended periods of time can get uncomfortable. They fog up eyeglasses, make your jaw sweat more and can restrict airflow when breathing hard, such as during exercise. LG engineers experienced in air purification technologies looked into the challenge of staying safe while minimizing the inconveniences of face masks and have come up with a new personal air solution that is not only more effective than traditional masks, but looks stylish to boot.

      The latest iteration of LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier introduces a number of improvements to the earlier beta model. Employing LG’s unique air solution technology, the new PuriCare Wearable delivers enhanced all-around performance with a smaller, lighter, more efficient motor. What hasn’t changed are the reliable LG DUAL fans which control air flow automatically1 by sensing the user’s breathing patterns to make breathing easier and more natural.

      The new PuriCare Wearable’s lightweight design makes it easier to wear throughout the day. Weighing in at only 94 grams, the device can be worn comfortably up to 8 hours with its 1,000mA which recharges in two hours with the included Easy Charge USB cable.2 The PuriCare Wearable’s sleek, ergonomic design minimizes air leakage around the nose and chin to create a tight but comfortable seal for hours.

      What wearers will appreciate most is the built-in microphone and speaker employing VoiceON technology, no longer requiring users to pull down their mask or raise their voice to carry on a conversation. VoiceON automatically recognizes when users are talking and amplifies their voice through the built-in speaker so listeners don’t have to strain or lean in to hear every word.3

      The newest LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier was worn by 120 Thai athletes, coaches and staff as they departed Suvannabhumi Airport Bangkok for the summer games in Tokyo. The device will officially launch in Thailand in August, with other markets to follow once approved by local regulators.

      Improved for better breathing with the most advanced wearable technology in the industry, the lighter, slimmer, more advanced PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier will satisfy the needs of everyone seeking maximum convenience and comfort without compromising style and clean air.
      Take it from the best athletes in Thailand.
