Can I download HBO Max movies and TV shows on Mac/Windows?

Unfortunately you can’t as there is no Max app for Mac/Windows. Previously you can sideload the iPad version of the app from the Mac App Store if you have an M1/M2 Mac. However, currently this workaround doesn’t work.

Some people choose to record HBO Max videos with screen recording software, this is accessible when you just record some clips or scenes to make memes/footages. It’s super inconvenient when you record the whole movie or episode since you have to play the entire show or movie while recording. It means you can’t use your Mac to do anything else in the meantime. Besides the record video quality can be very poor. Luckily we have a professional HBO Max video downloader that allows you to download any HBO Max titles to MP4 on Mac and Windows. You even don’t need to play the video via browser as it features a built-in HBO Max web player.
