how to turn off auto play on hbo max
HBO MAX is a video on demand service offered by the American premium television network HBO. Since launch, it has been available through internet and satellite television in part of Comcast’s Xfinity, Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications. It also serves as a competitor to other subscription video on demand services such as Netflix and Hulu.
With the app, users are able to watch the channel’s original series and some feature films on demand. Users can subscribe on either a monthly or annual basis with pricing not currently available. One of these original series is Game of Thrones, which viewers can expect more violence, nudity and scenes in this upcoming season.
Disable autoplay in HBO to avoid unwanted spoilers.
The seventh season of the fantasy drama TV series “Game of Thrones” (GoT) is upon us and as expected, it has more violence, nudity and scenes that we’ve seen before. For those who don’t want spoilers which can be found on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, then disabling autoplay on the HBO Go app might be the best option.
From what we’ve gathered, if you don’t want spoilers then turn off auto-play for HBO Go or don’t install it at all. You could also switch to Netflix for now if you’re not into streaming premium television shows over the internet.
Go to the settings menu and disable autoplay:
1. Goto the HBO GO app and select “More” tab.
2. Click on “Settings.”
3. Turn off autoplay by unchecking the box next to it then exit the settings menu.
Choose the show you want to watch and hit play.
Once autoplay is disabled, you will be required to press play for each video and not just sit back and watch. All your favorite shows and movies should be available in the “My TV Shows” section anyway so this shouldn’t be a problem if you know what episode you want to watch.
If you’re looking to spend time on social media and not watch TV shows on demand then this workaround should be sufficient. HBO Go will still function the same way but you won’t see updates or spoilers from your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
To sum it up, if you’re really into the show then stay away from social media while watching episodes by disabling autoplay in HBO Go. If you’re not into the show then go ahead and install any social media app on your phone, tablet or computer to avoid disappointment.
Enjoy your show without any interruptions!
