Keep reading for details about how to do it!
So, you purchased your new Vizio Smart TV and found out there is no HBO on it. You quickly realized that you could use an internet connection to watch many shows online, but you don’t feel like paying for another subscription service. This post will show you what you need to do to get HBO on your Vizio smart TV with the HBO Go app.
How To Get HBO Max On Vizio Smart Tv
If you have a Vizio smart TV, you can stream HBO Now content to your television. Unfortunately, HBO Now is not part of the other services such as Hulu and Netflix. Vizio does not have its own streaming services like Roku or Apple TV, but it does have apps for various streaming services including Amazon Video, VUDU and Crackle.
Able to access HBO Now on a Vizio smart TV? Here’s how:
1. Make sure your smart TV is connected to the internet.
2. You must sign up for an account with HBO Max. It’s free to open an account and gives you one month of free viewing before you need to pay for a subscription.
3. Log in to your account and select “Vizio Smart TV” as the streaming device on which you want to view HBO Now content.
4. Navigate to “Settings” on your smart TV and select “Network.” The default username is “viziocore” while the default password is “viziocore.”
5. Navigate back to the home page of the Settings menu and choose “Network Services.” Change the Network Service Mode setting from “HBO max” to “HBO Now.”
How To Get HBO Max On Your Vizio Smart TV If You Have An Older Model
HBO Max has officially launched just a few months ago, but there are a lot of people wondering if it’s available on their Vizio smart TV. The short answer is yes and no. It all depends on how you want to access the service and how old your TV is.
If you have an older Vizio smart TV and you want to get HBO Max on it, there’s some bad news. The popular streaming service isn’t compatible with any models older than 2015. If that’s not a problem for you, however, here’s what you need to know about getting HBO Max on your Vizio smart TV.
If you have an older model of Vizio smart TV, you won’t be able to get HBO Max directly from the maker. Instead, you’ll have to look elsewhere for streaming services like AT&T DirecTV or Sling TV. You may also be able to use apps like PlayStation Vue or Hulu with Live TV if your TV is more recent than in 2015.
Kodi app Method
There are several different ways that you can watch HBO on your Vizio Smart TV:
The Kodi app is free and is available for download through the Google Play store if you have a Vizio Smart TV that runs on Android OS 5.0 or higher.
Once you have downloaded it, open it and log in with your HBO Go credentials. You will then be able to instantly stream HBO shows and movies on your Vizio Smart TV without having to pay anything extra!
