Max, the rebranded version of Warner Bros. Discovery’s HBO Max streamer encountered some first-day hiccups Tuesday, May 23, 2023.

U.S. users of the service, which is replacing the HBO Max platform and brand, reported issues the morning of May 23, which was also the launch day for the new name and offerings.

WBD later labeled the issues as “minor” and did not consider the service as being “down,” though it did acknowledge that a small portion of users were having issues.

Max is largely the same as its predecessor, though it does include a significantly larger portion of its content in UHD 4K.
