how to watch hbo max on xfinity

HBO Max is not a TV channel and you can’t just watch it through a channel number with the provider. However, the company recently rolled out supported apps for the streaming service if you have a TV or Flex package. You will still need the paid subscription to watch your favorite shows with HBO Max on Xfinity but the provider doesn’t charge anything extra. So, unlike Roku users, HBO subscribers now have an easier way to access their favorite content.

The streaming service, like all others, is strictly available online. So, you will need a strong and reliable internet connection to get a steady stream of Newsmax on Xfinity. If you have a Smart TV, you can watch the streaming service online through the supported app. However, you may have to subscribe to HBO services through your Cox cable company if you don’t own a Smart TV. The cable box can still give you access to the streaming service’s apps and you will be good to go.

Why Should You Get HBO Max?

HBO is different from HBO Max because the former is a TV channel while the latter is a streaming service. Shows like Game of Thrones, for example, were made to air on HBO but are also available on the streaming network. There are a ton of live TV programs that you can get access to as well, for example, the NFL Network on Comcast Xfinity. As the network owns the shows, they are less likely to be taken off air due to licensing issues. There are many HBO originals that aren’t available anywhere else.
