Streaming on too many devices message

You can stream HBO Max on multiple devices at the same time. If you get the 'Your account is streaming on too many devices' message, it means you've reached the maximum number of devices that your account can stream on at the same time for your plan.

The number of devices you can stream on at once depends on your base subscription plan:

Base plan Number of streams
Basic with Ads 2
Standard 2
Premium* 4

*Watching live sports is limited to 2 of 4 devices.

What plan do I have?

Here's how to find your subscription plan:

  1. In HBO Max, do one of the following:
    • Phone, tablet, or computer: Choose your profile and then Subscription.
    • TV device: Choose the Settings icon cog (lower left) and then Subscription.
      (Only Adult profiles can manage devices.)
  2. Here you'll find your current base plan. Explore HBO Max plans.

To start streaming on another device, ask someone in your household to stop streaming HBO Max. (After they stop streaming, you may need to wait a few minutes before you can start streaming on your device.)

For a list of devices signed in to your account:

  2. Choose your profile, then Account and Devices.
    (Only Adult profiles can manage devices.)
  3. Here you'll find a list of devices signed in to your account (along with the sign-in date and country).
  4. To sign your account out of a device, choose the X beside a device.
