What is the issue with HBO Max on FiOS TV?

You would expect this to work just normally like it does on Roku, Apple TV, or other services. This is not the case with Verizon. The main reason for this is that the setup box they provide for the media service, FiOS does not include the HBO Max app.

It does not support the HBO Max app either, so there is no way to get one. This might feel very strange to some readers because Verizon especially claims to have support for HBO Max. But there is a twist to this.

Verizon does indeed supports HBO Max, but not on FiOS. What I am saying is that you get a subscription to HBO Max through Verizon and it would work just fine, but not on FiOS TV itself because they do not have the app for it.

Let’s say you magically had the app appear in FiOS TV somehow. In this case, you would easily be able to log in and use HBO Max. I hope you are getting what I am trying to explain. So how does one fixes this?

Multiple users reported casting from smartphone HBO Max app failed. So the other ways are to use Services such as Amazon Firestick. If you could make use of Amazon Firestick, it would provide you with a way to get the HBO Max app.

From there you can easily login into your HBO Max app using Verizon Login credentials! Otherwise, you would have to stick with the HBO premium even if you have the HBO Max app.
