HBO max app is buggy

West Wing discontinues mid-episode. Then problem code disappears before I can make note of it. This has happened a number of times today.

As an aside. I’m not real crazy about the interface. My shows that I save through the website don’t show up on the home screen of the app so I have to search for the shows every time.I also am not fond of rewinding and fast forwarding where you don’t get a thumbnail of where you are in the program. Only the time code. I have to select close captioning with every episode it doesn’t carry through from episode to episode. And specifically with the West Wing since I had been watching it on Netflix, I prefer their interface where are you could skip the recap and skip the intro. Come on, HBO. You can do better.

I am not thrilled with the lack of "continue watching" either. But I have found that if you start watching a movie and leave, when you want to come back to it say the name of the movie into your voice remote and the thumbnail will come up "play on hbomax" When you click play the movie will pick up where you left off. Not exactly continue watching, but better than searching every time
