How do I change the language?

The text you see in the HBO Max app is in English, however, you can change the audio or subtitle language for some shows and movies.

Change the audio or subtitle language

Some shows and movies have multiple audio and subtitle languages available. Here's how to change the audio track or subtitle language:

  1. Start watching something on HBO Max.
  2. Choose the Audio and Subtitles icon Audio and Subtitles icon in the video player.
  3. Choose a language for Audio and/or Subtitles.
    To learn more, see Subtitles, captions, and audio tracks.

By default, shows and movies in languages other than English play with the original audio track and English subtitles.

Some shows or movies have a language button (e.g. Spanish/English/Japanese) on their description page. Before choosing Play, toggle it to your preferred language.
