HBO Max: How to remove items from continue watching

The process of clearing your ‘Continue Watching’ list on HBO Max depends on the streaming device you are using. 

For example, accessing certain functions on HBO Max is a bit different when you are using Roku compared to Fire TV. The same is also true if you are using a smartphone app or a computer browser. 

Despite the differences, the result is the same – the continue watching list will be removed from your HBO Max homepage instantly. Typically those items will remain on the list for 30 days before they are automatically deleted.

How to clear the HBO Max Continue Watching list on Windows, Chromebook PC, and Mac

When streaming HBO Max on Windows, Chromebook, Mac, and PC, you are most likely using a browser. If that’s the case, follow these steps:

  1. Open HBO Max on your computer browser, then log in using your email and password.
  2. Click on your profile icon, which is at the top-right corner of the page.
  3. Select the My Stuff option on the menu.
  4. Click the Continue Watching option.
  5. Click on the Edit option at the top-right side of your screen.
  6. Find a show you’d like to delete, then select Remove or X, which is on the right side.
  7. Click Done once you’ve removed all the shows.
If you want to remove all the shows from your Continue Watching list, select Clear all at the top-right of the screen to clear all of them at once. Click Done after clearing content to complete the process.
