HBO Max is a new streaming service that combines the incredibly popular HBO original shows with a huge catalog of blockbusters and TV shows provided by Warner Media. After purchasing a monthly subscription you can enjoy all the exclusives on this platform in the best quality.
However, sometimes there can still be quality problems with the viewing experience. One of such problems is incorrect resolution. In this article, we are going to tell you how to change the resolution on HBO Max.
How to set up resolution on HBO Max
There is currently no direct way to change the resolution while streaming on HBO Max. Instead, the platform automatically adjusts the streaming quality according to several factors, mainly your Internet connection and your device’s screen resolution settings.
Furthermore, movies and TV shows are streamed according to the official agreement between HBO Max and the distributor. For this reason, the resolution can differ from 720p to Ultra HD, depending on the content, and you will not be able to change it.
Due to the fact that HBO Max relies heavily on your device’s capabilities and network speed, there are often problems with the video quality. This is especially true for series premieres when traffic can be at its highest.
How to improve video quality on HBO Max
While it may be annoying to have problems distinguishing the image on the screen, there are several ways to improve the picture quality. Mostly it comes down to adjusting your device settings and increasing your network speed.
If you want to improve the quality of video playback in some way, you have to follow these steps:
- First of all, sign out of your HBO Max profile;
- After that, clear your browser’s cache and cookies.
If the problem still persists, try to check your Internet connection. As a last resort, you can try to reboot your router. Or you can contact your ISP if the problem doesn’t end up being solved by yourself.
