Can't connect Max provider

If you get Max through an internet, mobile, or TV provider, you need to connect your provider account (with your Max subscription) before signing in to Max.

Already have an account?
If you already have a Max (or HBO Max) account, sign in with your email and password.

If you can't connect your internet, mobile, or TV provider account, find your issue below:

'Can't verify your subscription' message

If you get this message, do the following:

  • Make sure Max is included with your internet, mobile, or TV package. To do this, sign in to your provider account on your provider's website and make sure Max is included. For more info, go to Do I already have access to Max?
  • Apple device: Try removing your TV provider from your iOS or tvOS settings:
    • iPhone or iPad: Go to Settings > TV Provider. Under Allow TV provider to access, turn off Max.
    • Apple TV: Go to Settings > Users and Accounts > TV Provider. Under Allow TV provider to access, turn off Max.
    Once removed, try the Connect provider steps again.
My provider isn't listed

If your provider isn't on the Connect Your Provider screen, it may be because:

  • You need to type your provider’s name in the ‘Search for your provider’ box, or scroll through the list of providers (below the company logos).
  • You need to sign in with your Max (or HBO Max) account (instead of connecting your provider).
  • Your provider may not support Max at this time.

For more help, go to My provider isn't listed.

'Provider account already in use' message

If you get this message when connecting your provider, it means your provider account is already linked to a Max account. Instead of connecting your provider, try signing in with your Max account email and password.

If you're not sure which email is associated with your Max account, go to Find your account email.

Can't sign in to provider account

Make sure you can sign in to your account on your provider's website. Here's how:

  1. Go to your internet, mobile, or TV provider's website.
  2. Sign in with your account username and password.
    Note If you can't sign in, look for an option to reset your password. If you can't sign in to your provider account, contact them directly for help. Max support doesn't have access to your provider sign-in information.
  3. After you successfully sign in to your provider's website, go back to Max and try the Connect provider steps again.
iOS: Connect provider page is blank

If the connect your provider screen is blank, try the following:
