Max makes a mediocre first impression on Apple TV.

Warner Bros. Discovery is repeating past mistakes with the Max app that rolled out for Apple’s tvOS today. It’s using a custom video player, which means you lose out on some features and a convenient method of quickly scrubbing through content with the remote.

HDR and Dolby Vision aren’t working right for some people, and Max has seemingly ditched support for Apple’s “Up Next” watchlist. Bugs are to be expected on launch day, but hopefully WBD will be receptive to feedback and fix some of this ASAP.
