Without a doubt, Max has some of the best titles streaming today. It gets prestige TV shows from HBO and blockbuster films from parent company WarnerMedia. But the journey to get to where it is today wasn’t exactly smooth sailing. Users may remember that it started out as the clunky HBO Now, then HBO Go, then HBO Max. Then, it was unclear if cable subscribers could access the streaming service (they could) and if HBO Max would transform after its merger with Discovery+ (it did, hence the new moniker Max).
And to top off all this confusion, Max doesn’t have the best user interface in the market. Sure it’s made many updates since, but features remain buggy and incomplete, especially when compared to user-friendly competitors like Netflix and Disney+.
So below, we gathered a list of the best Max alternatives currently available. They may not have the breadth and quality of the HBO Max library, but they sure are stabler and easier to use. So if those are what you’re looking for, read on.
