Signing in to MAX GO

How do I sign up for MAX GO?

To sign up for MAX GO, you'll need a Cinemax subscription through a participating TV provider and the username and password from your TV provider account.

To sign up or sign in to MAX GO, do the following: 

  1. Do any of the following:
    • Computer: Go to and choose Sign Up or Sign In (in the upper-right corner). If you can't sign in, see Troubleshoot MAX GO.
    • iOS: Open the MAX GO app, tap the Menu button and then tap Sign In.
    • Android: Open the Max GO app, and choose either Sign Up or Sign In.
