$10 is the regular price for the commercial-supported plan (which hopefully will also be available through Dish). The HBO Max website is already offering a further discount off of that lower price, when you order an annual subscription directly from them. Apparently, there is still code on Dish's website for an HBO $5 per month for six months offer, if they choose to enable that option.Hopefully they'll have some sort of deal to get people signed back up. $10/month for 12 months or something like that.
The part I found interesting is the code that refers to HBO Max. HBO Max wasn't around the last time Dish had HBO. Looking at the code, it appears there is going to be an informational page at https://my.dish.com/upgrades/premiums/hbomax

Meanwhile...another Wednesday has quietly come and gone.
Not entirely quietly. There was this little gem:Nothing significant about yesterday's uplink report?
Or in the meantime and without any speculation as to when or even if the HBOMax app comes to DISH you can get a Firestick for $40 and have 4K/HDR built right into an input on your OLED. I just test that on my Firestick and it is beautiful.That would be great. Neither My Directv nor LG OLED TVs have the HBO/MAX App. I have to use a Laptop with HDMI to see HBO/MAX on the OLEDs.
I have 2 4k Firesticks for 2 TV's one is used heavily, sometimes it has issues but a simple unplugging the power cord and replugging it in solves the issue. HBO Max app is pretty nice picture on it. I prefer the FS 4k over the Roku 4k premiere. But I've noticed the Roku picture quality is improving. If Firestick 4k or the cube is on sale on Prime day I'll probably get another one. Maybe HBO will be back after July 4 long weekend??? Or when Dish release's their new hardware.Are they that unreliable?
Darn good question. They were both years old and neither has any way to turn it off. I have a 3rd which has spent most of it's life in my luggage, and it was still working the last time I took a trip.Are they that unreliable?
Our most heavily used Stick kept losing it's wifi connection and had a tough time getting reconnected after a reset. The second most heavily used is stuck on the FireTV animated logo. I have not been able to get it to do a factory reset, so it's headed for the trash as well.Occasionally, I have to "reboot" my Fire Stick, then it works fine.
