    WB/HBOmax denies the Harry Potter stuff, but can just be a smokescreen to keep it underwraps to let more time pass since the last JK Rowling transphobic outbreak.

    Personally I often find it very difficult to separate art from artist and her views really diminish my interest in anything she is involved in or profits from.

    After having a bunch of her remaining fans harass and tell me to kill myself for pointing out she was wrong about trans people I really have no interest in anything she releases from now on. I used to be a fan of Harry Potter and the whole wizarding world, but she killed that. If HBO Max does actually make it I'll cancel my account since I don't want her to ever make a single penny off me.

    I liked it when I was using it a couple months ago.
    I think the queue was under your profile.
    I think the next episode of the shows I'd been watching just came up towards the top of the homepage. Not sure about if movies I watched came up anywhere though.

    As I've used it, any series I'm watching automatically gets added to my list which appears under my name; as well as anything I was in the process of watching but didn't finish.

    Of course I'm watching it in a full browser I'm not watching it in my phone and I didn't have a media streaming stick on my HDTV - so I can't speak to how that interface may or may not work.

    You definitely said that much more clearly than I did. I forgot to mention in my post that I watched everything on PS4, but I did browse the website version, and it's interface was more or less the same as the PS4 one.

    I wish HBO Max would do some continuation of Venture Bros, at least a movie to wrap up some of the storylines given the ending of the last episode.

    Bell gave me 2 free months of Crave + (Canada's equivalent of HBO Max) so I've been binging! Finished The Outsiders and Party Down already, both really good.

    Now that I know that you get HBO Max automatically just for paying for HBO.

    What notable TV series are on it besides HBO originals? I only know of West Wing and South Park so far.

    If you're into American animation and/or anime it's got shows from Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Crunchy Roll, and Hanna-Barbera.

    Does it give you the choice for subs instead of dubs?

    Is there anything else on Adult Swim worth watching besides Rick & Morty?

    Venture Bros. and Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law are a lot of fun.

    With the new movies, original content, and hbo catalogue I think this is actually the best streaming service. Not necessarily the best value, but best overall.

    I just saw the news over on IGN and I'm a little confused. Why are they releasing a podcast on a video service? Are we just going to be staring at a blank screen or just a still image?
