I have never understood the attraction of viewing movies and TV shows on a phone.

Maybe you don’t get out enough ...
While waiting at the optometrist I watched a bit of an episode of BBT. We’re on vacation and the wife goes to the grocery store and I watch an old episode of Home Movies while I wait on the car. I’m napping in the camper with an old movie as background noise. At my office desk I can listen to a news station with headphones and not bother anyone.

While sitting on my ass at my kids practices (pre-Covid) if I wasn't BSing with other parents, I'd watch a movie/show or something. Thursday night football. Etc.
For others sitting in the car...you can only play SOOOOOO much Candy Crush...amIrite?

I will probably piss you guys off and I apologize but I find it very sad you feel you must use screen time to get thru life.

Enjoy the moment around you, you are missing so much.

Okay boomer ... I will strive to enjoy sitting in my truck waiting to be allowed into the optometrist office because they can’t let more than two people in at a time.

You could always listen to the radio

I could do lots of things... listen to commercials with a song mixed in every now and then ... read yet another news article about some aspect of coronavirus ... jerk off ... or watch an episode of Rick and Morty on my phone ... none of these are bad things.

No worries. I don't feel that I must.
But its a damn sight better than watching annoying kids not listen to their coach.

I don't think I labeled any behavior as "bad" . Do what pleases you. I am simply stating my thoughts on the issue

My wife and I have been listening to audio books on the back porch in the evening recently and are enjoying it. We are listening to Fool by Christopher Moore, which is one of my favorite books and new to her.

Is HBO Max on Roku at this point? I haven't looked in a while...
On my TCL TV which has Roku built in, I saw a banner for some shows on HBO Max.
Intrigued, I clicked to see if it would start playing...and it does.
Is it a "Free Trial" or have they come to an agreement?

Doesn't look like it yet from a quick googling.

Rose and I have cell service with AT&T. We changed an old unlimited plan to the new unlimited plan. It is cheaper, includes cell hot spot and HBO Max. It allows three connections at a time. So multiple viewing platforms that may include phones, tv's and tablets. These do not have to be at the same location. We just finished watching Raised By Wolves.

I couldn't find it either.

Don't have any idea who is more to blame but the whole situation seems really childish

I’ll just say that if the HBO Max app was being treated like literally every other app on the Roku and Amazon platforms, it’d be on the Roku and Amazon platforms.

It is a money dispute. They do not want to pay Roku and Amazon what they are asking for. Just grab the new "Chromecast with Google TV" device for $50. It just came out, sports the new Google TV operating system replacing Android TV (it is just a rebrand and a new skin) and gets good reviews. It also supports both HBO Max and Peacock.
