Roku has a feature called screen mirroring or casting that allows you to mirror the audio or video from your Android or Windows device. Using the same network connection, you can connect your device to your Roku and enable the feature.

You can use screen mirroring to cast HBO Max to your Roku device.

  • To start, go to the Settings of your Roku device.
  • Select System and navigate to Screen Mirroring.
  • Once there, click Screen mirroring mode.
  • Now check either Always allow or Prompt.

When you have enabled the screen mirroring, you can now start watching HBO Max. However, screen mirroring is only available for Windows and Android and does not support iOS or Apple devices.

Solution #3 – Stream HBO Max to your TV Using AirPlay

For Apple or iOS users, you can also wirelessly connect your device to your Fire TV or Roku. Apple has an AirPlay feature that will allow you to stream HBO Max on your Smart TV. But, AirPlay is only available to selected Apple TV or iOS devices, primarily recent models. It is also available on limited models of LG, Samsung, Sony and Vizio smart TVs.

To connect via AirPlay, you will find the AirPlay icon on the movie or show you want to stream. Click on the icon and choose the device you want to connect to. Just like Roku’s screen mirroring, make sure you are connecting to the same network.
