Hidden Gems of HBO Max

Nothing. There's nothing good on there!

It will likely get better over time, so here's the place to post any gems, or discuss movies or shows on HBO Max.

HBO Max is a big yawn so far for original content, but it just launched so hopefully it'll improve over time. There's an ok TCM collection for instance. There is very DC little content though. I thought all the DC Universe stuff would be here, but it's not right now.

All the Harry Potter movies are there, which is nice.

But the point of this topic right now is that all of the Studio Ghibli movies are there! This is the first time they have ever been available from an online service.

Wish I could use it. We use Roku and a smart TV with Prime, neither of which can access HBO Max. Hopefully they get that worked out.

What I don't understand is why they have HBO Now as a separate service. Can't they just put the Max movies on Now? Then your Roku could watch any of it.

But, hey, it's AT&T. They're professional-grade stupid there.

Dude they still have HBO Go too. I think AT&T has 6 or 8 different streaming services, it is just dumb.

VPs engaging in turf battles, probably.

I hope my current HBO subscription gives me access to that.

It should. What cable service do you have?

Every one of them except Grave of the Fireflies and The Red Turtle.

I know those are co-owned / developed, but still worth seeing and a shame they’re not included.

I’m excited because there are 6 movies in their catalog I’ve never seen.
