This is how to watch HBO Max in Canada

HBO Max did not debut in Canada on May 27 like it did in the United States, leaving lots of bored quarantined Canadians annoyed.

It's "the streaming platform that bundles all of HBO together with even more of your favorite movies and TV series."

However, those trying to sign up outside "the U.S. and certain U.S. territories" will only get a "Not in service area" page.

TV fans have especially been looking forward to being able to try out the service to watch shows like the much-anticipated Zack Snyder's Justice League.

Canadians technically are able to access HBO Max, but only as a Crave add-on and even then that only comes with limited programming.

The only programs that are part of HBO Max to become available on May 27 are rom com Love Life, kids' craft show Craftopia and underground ballroom show Legendary. The Crave + Movies + HBO subscription required for viewing totals about $20 per month.

I guess they knew they couldn't rip off Canadians that much, so other HBO Max series we'll eventually be able to access via Crave include the Gossip Girl reboot, Greg Berlanti's Green LanternThe Flight Attendant, Lena Dunham's Generation, Mindy Kaling's College Girls and Dune: The Sisterhood.
