Can I manually adjust my video playback settings?

HBO Max automatically adjusts the video quality based on your network bandwidth and connection speed. Most shows and movies are available in high definition (HD). Manual video quality settings are not currently available.

If your network bandwidth is too low or the connection speed fluctuates, you might get a lower resolution video. If this happens, try the troubleshooting steps in the Video buffers or pauses article.

The HBO Max app on phones and tablets has options to limit video playback depending on your connection type. For more info, see How to limit cellular data usage.
