Where do I enter the code?

On your phone or a computer, open a new web browser window. In your browser's address bar type: https://hbomax.com/tvsignin. This takes you to an Enter Code page (https://activate.hbomax.com) where you can enter the 6-character code from your TV.

Code doesn't work or is invalid

Here are some things to try:

  • Make sure you're on the correct page (activate.hbomax.com) when you enter the 6-character code from your TV.
  • Try using a different browser: Chrome, FireFox, Microsoft Edge, or Safari.
  • Get a new code. To do this, go back and choose Sign In again on your TV.
  • Try using a computer instead of your phone (go to activate.hbomax.com and enter the code from your TV).
  • Clear your browser data. Here's how:
    • iPhone: On your iOS device, go to Settings > Safari, then scroll down and tap Clear History and Website Data. To learn more, go to Clear Safari.
    • Android phone: Try clearing your Chrome browsing data on your Android device. To find out how to do this, see Clear cache & cookies.
