How to fix HBO Max ‘Streaming on too many devices’ error?

If you are getting the ‘Streaming on too many devices’ error then chances are that you violate these restrictions. Let’s take a look at this error and how you can get rid of it.

Why are you getting the ‘Streaming on too many devices’ error?

HBO Max only allows you to stream content on 3 different devices simultaneously. This means that no matter how many different devices and profiles are associated with your account, you can only use 3 of them at any given point in time.

This will stop you from streaming content on your device. HBO has enforced this restriction to avoid security breaches and in the worst case, piracy.

Let’s take a look at how you can solve this issue and continue watching your movie or tv show in no time.
