With Spectrum, as long as you have HBO in your current subscription package, HBO Max is free on all devices. How do you get it on your Samsung Smart TV? Screenshots would help a lot! I get this question often! Thank you!

    Hey Satch, great question. I love HBO Max and personally have it on my Samsung Smart TVs. It's really rather simple. You would just need to go to the app store there on your TV, search for HBO Max, install it, add it to your home bar if you want and then fire it up. Keep in mind that you will need to use your primary My Spectrum account credentials (not secondary logins).

    Found some helpful info:

    1.)If any app is not installing, what worked on my Samsung is go to the Smart Hub with all the apps and find an app, to which you already subscribe. Enter that app. (Use your Smart TV Remote.)

    2.) Turn off your TV with your Spectrum remote for at least 30 seconds.

    3.) Turn the TV back on. A logo may appear with your TV and model number. The TV will be reset, with no settings changes.

    4.) Using the remote that comes with your Smart TV, go to the Smart App Screen, and find your app or search for it, if it not in the Home Bar. Try installing it now.

    With that helpful background info, here is how to get HBO Max on your Samsung Smart TV: Click the TV tab, if you are not already on the tap at this link below: (Remember, you must have HBO in your Spectrum Package to get HBO Max for free:)
