I'm in the UK and got my one max on day of release and i have say I have become more and more frustrated with it. I love watching my movies and decided to get some ultraviolet movies, the only app in the UK that plays them here is flixster, which is not compatible. I am a sky customer and I can't use sky go because it's not compatible. I can't download from BBC iPlayer because its not compatible and its the same issue on and on. My old s4 which my partner has plays it all, and even my son's kobo arc. Come on devs and HTC sort this out

I feel your pain pal.
I excepted it with my butterfly s as it's not a phone released in the UK but I don't expect this from the max. The 2 apps th I am mising most a're sky go and gta San Andreas. I think we will have to wait and see if sky update their sky go app. Watching the footy on the max will be awesome. Although I disagree with you that the fault lies with HTC.
I think it's the app developers that need to to be told.
Here's hoping it gets sorted soon.

Can't you guys just side load it or do a mod/hack? i am not in the UK and i don't know what exactly is preventing you to do that, but i guess it can be fixed using mods - example - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1839871

Searching on the forum ( HTC one forums) might take you nearer to what you want.

Not htc. Must be country specific. I have san andreas available to install on my verizon Max running stock.

That would be great if you could help me pal.
Does it require me to root the phone?
