HBO Max subscribers check your access now

If anybody else uses a browser on their MythTV box (or any Linux box) to access HBO Max, please check your access now. Any browser, any Linux distro. Reports from many users say it stopped working a few days ago. Plays the previews but stops at the main feature.

It is likely they've upped DRM security, similar to what happened with Disney+ and CBS All Access in the past. Both those platforms fixed the problem.

If this affects you, please contact HBO Max support to add your name to the list. :) Scripted email responses will say Linux is not supported. I called and spoke with "Anthony" who is a "PC guy" and completely understands the whole DRM issue, and will pass my info along.
