Getting around the HBO Max app

Home. When you first open HBO Max, you're on the Home screen. This is where you'll find featured series and movies, as well as Continue Watching.

To go to Home:

  • Computer or TV: Choose the Browse icon and then choose Home.
  • Phone or tablet: Tap the Home icon (bottom of the screen on phones and on the left on tablets)

Browse. If you're not sure what you want to watch, choose the Browse icon. Here you can browse by category (Movies or Series), by genre (e.g. Action or Kids), or a combination of both. For example, you can choose Movies (from the Browse menu) and then a genre like Action (along the top of the screen). Or you can choose a genre like Comedy first, and then A-Z to see all comedic series and movies.

Search. If you know what you want to watch, you can use Search. Choose the Search icon and then type a series name, a movie or episode title, a director, writer, a character, brand (e.g. HBO or DC), genre, or an actor or actress. As you type, you'll start to see matches. Search results only include series and movies that can be watched by the active profile. To learn more, see Browse and search.

Profile. Choose the Profile icon to switch, add, or manage profiles. Profile is also where you can access My List, Downloads, and Continue Watching, as well as settings such as Billing Information, Account, and Manage Devices.
