Two Weeks After HBO Max Dropped, It's STILL Not Available On Roku Or Amazon. What A Fucking Joke.

Hey HBO Max, Roku, and Amazon Fire, cut the shit and fix this. It's embarrassing at this point. 

The latest addition to high-end subscription streaming, HBO Max dropped two weeks tomorrow but still has yet to come to an agreement with the two companies that account for 70% of the streaming device market. I'm was actually kind of shocked that HBO, the Godfather of pay TV, dropped Max without having agreements in place with Roku and Amazon in the first place. 

Of course it's ultimately about money, like it always is. Regardless, it's still a bad look for Home Box Office to roll out their much-ballyhooed new service in such an oafish and customer-unfriendly fashion. Listen, this is just tough love from a roughly 40-year customer. I fucking love HBO, its cultural impact, and its unmatched catalog. But this is nothing short of a PR disaster at this point.

Yeah, I know, you can watch Max content on Apple TV, some smart TVs, tablets, laptops, and (god forbid) your phone. But I'm not swtiching to Apple TV and watching movies on tiny screens defeats the purpose. The fact that HBO Max wasn't available on Roku and Fire on the day it debuted is a GD joke. Here we are two weeks later and we're still standing around with our thumbs up our HBO Max-less asses. 

If Tony Soprano was still alive, there's no way this happens.

Hey HBO Max...
