I didn't realize you could access Max as an Xfinity subscriber. Neat. Logged in on the ATV4K app this evening and watched The Witches. Loves me some Anne Hathaway.

You must have a better package than I do, I'd have to pay $15 a month.

Yeah. I called Xfiny to bitch about my data cap. They reduced my bill $20/month, doubled my internet speed, dropped the cap, and tossed in HBO. I guess Ziply Fiber moving into the area got them feeling a bit "generous".

That's stupid. Why would you take money out of the wallet of the poor, starving CEO at Comcast? You should just pay whatever they ask. Competition is antithetical to capitalism.

Or something.

More like he took money out of the pot that provides reduced price services to poor inner city neighborhoods. Why do you hate the poor?

HBO used to suck, I don't pay for it so I'd have to get naked Max. I considered it but honestly the only movies I care about I'd eventually buy if they are good, so I'll take that $15/month and put it toward Gal Gadot in glorious 4k when it comes out.

Roku and HBO worked out a deal finally and you can now get HBOMax on all Roku devices. It's about ****ing time.

I wasn't sure if we should use this thread for show recommendations or make another thread called "HBO Max Recommendations", but so far I'm enjoying The Flight Attendant. It supposedly has a much more satisfying ending than The Undoing, which had a very disappointing ending.

I need to finish Lovecraft Country. I only watched the first 3 episodes.

Yup, that and Watchmen really sold me on the modern HBO stuff. Hoping for a season 2 eventually.

We watched the Flight Attendant all the way thru.

Solid thriller show and we enjoyed it.

They were just renewed for a Season 2.

About 5 eps in to Flight Attendant. Not bad. Her character kinda annoys me with her ****s up all the damn time.

Lovecraft Country was very satisfying. Hope they do a spinoff.

Sorry meant Euphoria, not Watchmen.

Going to be another season of Succession? That's a good one, too.

His Dark Materials was pretty good, didn't expect so many characters to get killed off though...

His Dark Materials is available in 4K/HDR in the UK but HBO Max only streams it in 1080P for some reason. Even though I have HBO Max I have to pirate it to get the best quality

Finished The Flight Attendant. Was pretty good. Main character kinda annoyed me. But the boobs... I would think something that major happening would make you question some of your life choices instead of doing those things more. But, I have no idea if that is "normal" for that character's type of life.

I think it's just a book trilogy, so maybe 3 seasons.
