    I just started watching this last night. Since I just signed up for HBO MAX for WW84. I'm only two thirds of the way through the first episode, but so far I am enjoying it.

    I recorded the first ep off of TBS and have watched about half of it. I want to see more but I don't have a device that carries Max. :( Maybe I'll actually go to my laptop to watch more after I finish this one. I do want to see more.

    Since I do pay for HBO I think I can do that. For some reason this has been a bit confusing to me.

    Thanks! So, this Fire Stick has HBO Max? I had heard it does and it doesn't, and that if it does you have to pay for it even if you already subscribe to HBO. Sorry I'm so confused on this.

    Thank You so much. I'm going to get one. I see it's the same price on Target, plus I get 5% off and free ship because I have a Target card. Score! :D $18.50 out the door.

    If you have an HBO Sub elsewhere (well at least with my DirecTV sub) you should be able to do Max for no additional cost. They've been pushing it like crazy on DirecTV actually, including a free preview of this show.

    And of course, if you have Amazon Prime, I think the Firestick is still the best place to watch that content. Another sweet thing about the Firestick is it "travels" well. It's tiny footprint makes it easy to throw in a backpack and it works well with most internet login systems at hotels. I use my old Firestick for just that purpose. And they are cheap enough I actually have an unopened one lying around. I'll either gift it or use it on another TV.

    I do have the HBO channels with my cable, so that was my biggest question - if you pay for HBO to the cable co, is Max free as long as you have a way to stream it. I also have Prime, so I'll also check that out. I usually go through the Tivo for Prime, but I'll have to try it.

    You know, you pay $$$ for cable, including Premium channels, then now there are all these streamers where they keep moving stuff and you have to keep purchasing more services. It doesn't seem right but I guess I'll adapt. After paying about $250 month for cable/internet/landline, It's hard to want to pay more fees to watch tv. :)

    Check with your Cable Provider. I can only speak for DirecTV which offers it for free with Sub (of course that's also AT&T) but I do remember reading that many of the larger cable providers offer it with their sub of HBO for free.

    Not to "well actually" but there's a list of cablers who offer free Max :)

    I have Verizon FiOS and get HBO. HBO Max is free for me. I signed in with my FiOS credentials and I’m good to go.

    Wow, that's more cable cos than I imagined existed. Spectrum is on the list but I wouldn't know how to get there. Maybe check my kitchen tv that's on a Spectrum cable box (other TVs on Tivo).

    I have a cable box upstairs in my old office that I don't use anymore. I keep saying I'm going to bring it down and try it in the living room for stuff like On Demand that you can't get here with Tivo.

    Either way, I won't regret purchasing the Fire Stick thing. Not much money, and I'm sure it w/b useful. :)

    If I recall you log into HBO Max on your device. That points you to a website and you enter the code on the screen at the website (on your computer, phone or tablet). At that point it will bring to the website of your provide (in your case Spectrum), and once you log in there (and it verifies you have an HBO sub) it should work on your TV.

    Thanks. That sounds about right, as it was how I got devices into other streaming services. Have to wait until the Stick arrives (by next Tues), since my other devices don't offer it.

    Let us know how you make out.

    I have my issues about how AT&T has handled DirecTV and their multiple online YTTV equivalent services like AT&T Now, but, the HBO Max app is really done well. Lots of content available and now with 4K and Atmos coming, that makes it complete.

    I've only just finished episode three so I guess I can't read the thread now that four and five are out.

    I really enjoyed the first ep but my interest has been waning since then. I expect to finish it, but episode three was a bit of a slog. There's only so much of Cassie being a drunken screw-up I need to see. I also don't care what Megan is up to. I've always liked Zosia Mamet though, and I am really digging her here.

    What is up with the shower in the lawyer’s place? A shower with clear walls right in the middle of your kitchen, living room, dining room? Why? You can pretty much very have guests stay with you. Super impractical :)

    I watched ep 4 last night and I feel like I’m liking less for some reason. It’s okay though. I’ll finish them all.

    I'm getting fed up with this show. She drinks so frigging much I can't see how she even functions at all. She'd be slurring and stumbling and probably passed out with all the vodka she puts away. At least they make her stupid like a bad drunk really is. I've watched 5 eps and I'll probably keep going, but it's just unrealistic that a 120 pound woman could imbibe like that.
