l want to watch HBO Max on my tv….how do l do that

Jef Dinsmore January 24, 2022 - 5:56 pm

Well, unless you have a Smart TV or a device like a Firestick you aren’t. HBO Max is a streaming program via the internet so, unless you have some means to get the internet on your TV monitor you are stuck watching it only on your computer/laptop/tablet. But I am not really all that tech savvy.
