Getting to see the entire run of Game of Thrones justified getting HBOMax for me.

They do have a lot of content, but how much people enjoy it will vary.

One of the things I have realized lately is just how picky I am about what I will watch. I have literally hundreds, if not thousands of choices now (HBO Max, Amazon Prime, and Netflix, as well as a temporary membership with HULU and the full line of movie channels that Cox offers...and there are still nights I find nothing I want to watch.

How did we do it when there were just 3 networks? LOL

And a black and white tv that could only be hung on a wall with bunch of lag bolts and a few anchor chains. And rabbit ears with two rolls of aluminum foil.

The "Same Day Premier" movies, those that premier on HBO Max the same day they are in theaters, are on HBO for a month. So for example, when Dune premiers on October 22, it will be on HBO until November 22. It might eventually come back to HBO after a few months. Wonder Woman 1985 was originally on HBO from December 25- January 25, but is not currently back on HBO to watch. It just depends on the distribution deals these movies have. But considering HBO is owned by WarnerMedia, there's a pretty good chance that these Warner Bros Pictures will be back on HBO after their initial run.

Thanks. Yes, I was exaggerating a little. I know new releases are on for longer than the 1 week I was saying, but when I combine my schedule, my other TV I'm regularly recording & watching, etc., by the time I look up, it says, "___ movie is ending in a couple of days."

If I had extra money, I'd sign up again this time for HBO Max, but I don't think I will this time.

I liked it when we all watched the same shows. We had "watercooler" talk the next day about our favorites. Kinda miss that.
We have HBO so MAX is free, but I had to get the Firestick to get MAX. My 4 year old TV just wouldnt do it.
