HBO Max cannot log into new device

Hi

I have had HBO max as part of the offering from AT&at wireless. A call to AT&T wireless yesterday they said my plan still comes with HBO max 

my plan :

AT&T Unlimited & More(SM)

Premium Multi line

My issue.  i cannot log

into a new device.  i try log into in as Tv provider and select At&t.  i’ve done this before many times       when i try it when you’d expect it to log in , it brings me back to a page to create an account and i already have an account.  also i believe i’m using the correct user id 

odd is my TV and cell are still logged in and working fine so i don’t want to log out and risk

not being able to log back in 

any thoughts?  maybe related to recent Warner bros separated from At&t although At&t says i

still have Hbo max 

thanks

Hi 

So HBO Max is still logged into one phone and the TV from some time ago

trying to sign in via another

phone and a laptop 

the laptop I click login then Sign in through TV or mobile provider.  i click at&t and use my at&t credentials id use to check my bill etc 

But then it doesn’t log in as expected as you noted. i know or should work but it doesn’t 

it brings me to a screen says 

Welcome to HBO Max

Enter your personal information to

create your HBO Max account 

This doesn’t make sense as i already have an account.  I don’t want to try to create an account when my account works on a tv and one phone.  I don’t want to take a

chance that stops working 

ideas ?

 thanks 

Ted

So some additional info 

Three iphones which were already signed in to

HBO Max for some time still work as long as we don’t log out 

A 4th iphone just installed HBO

max cannot log in along with a Surface laptop and an Xbox cannot log in,

not sure if the Xbox had been logged in before 

so the 4th phone, surface and xbox have the exact issue as I last described after clicking sign in with tv provider and then it promps me

to create a new account 

could the issue be 4 devices have a successful login and more cannot log in ? we are not trying to use more than one device at the same time 

thanks

Hello @traitt, you can sign in to HBO Max on different devices, but the number of simultaneous streams is limited for security reasons.

 

We recommend you review this article on streaming on too many devices and follow the sign in steps provided.

 

We hope this helps!

We understand your frustration with not being able to log into your HBO Max account, @traitt

 

Please try using this resource to troubleshoot and fix your log-in issue. 

Just simply click View All on both the Streaming section and Signing In section, and you will be presented with some helpful tips.

 

Secondly, you can use our HBO Max Sign resource.

  • What error messages you are getting when you try to sign in? This will help us determine why you aren't able to. 
  • What devices are you using? Have you tried clearing your cache and cookies on your device to refresh everything? We want to make sure that your previous log in is not saved.
  • What type of TV is your HBO Max connected to? This will help pinpoint if this is only happening to a specific model.

In the meantime, you can use these forums thread for more troubleshooting help.

Please meet us in a direct message, so we can continue to resolve this with continued support.

It’s the chat icon next to the bell icon in the upper right corner of the Forums

 

 

Thanks again for reaching out to AT&T Community Forums.

Have you used the troubleshooting resources that were provided? This will determine the next steps we'll need to take to resolve this.

  3. Choose AT&T.
  4. Enter the AT&T user ID and password for your wireless account that includes HBO Max. 
  5. Select Sign in.
  6. If it’s your first time signing in, create your HBO Max profile. It may take up to 1 minute.
  7. Choose your watcher’s profile to start streaming.

Help with signing in via your TV

 

You will need to have your phone or a computer. Follow mentioned-below steps to login into HBO Max account.
