Remember that everything has downtime, so I recommend checking the HBO Max streaming service for downtime. You can do that by checking the official HBO Max Twitter account.

A slow or lousy Internet connection might also cause your current issue with the streaming service. So, find a way to check if your Internet is secure and perfectly working.

However, if you notice the problem is from the Internet connection, I strongly recommend you troubleshoot your modem/router by restarting it and checking if the connection is working.
