How to Watch Max Go on the Apple TV

The Max Go app is a great way to watch Cinemax content that you have access to with your cable subscription.

If Max Go has partnered with your cable provider, then all you need to do is download the Max Go app, sign in with your credentials, and start watching movies and TV shows.

But while the Max Go app is accessible from your iPhone and iPad, it can be a little more difficult to watch it on your TV.

Fortunately, if you have an Apple TV, then you can take advantage of the AirPlay feature that is enabled by that device.

Our guide below will show you how to watch Max Go on your television with your iPhone and Apple TV.

If your watch screen isn’t lighting up or making any sounds, then check out our guide on how to turn off theater mode on Apple Watch to see if that’s the reason.

Using AirPlay and an iPhone to Watch Max Go on an Apple TV

The steps in this article were written using an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 8.3. However, you can use these same steps to AirPlay Max Go to your Apple TV from most other iPhone and iPad models, in most versions of iOS.

Note that this article will assume that you already have the Max Go app installed on your device. You can click here to go to the app in the App Store and download it to your iPhone. Once it has been installed, simply sign in with the username and password that you use to access your account with your cable provider.

Your Apple TV must be turned on and connected to your Wi-Fi network. Your iPhone must also be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Apple TV. You can read this article to learn how to tell if you are connected to cellular or Wi-Fi on your iPhone.
