We got the announcement today that HBO Max is getting SharePlay support soon, but there are still a significant number of streaming services that still do not have support for it.
Here are just a few of the said streaming services that do not have SharePlay functionality as of this article being published.
- Peacock: With content on it such as “The Office,” “Yellowstone,” and all eight “Harry Potter” movies, as well as live sporting events like Sunday MLB games, IndyCar races, and NFL Sunday Night Football, you would think SharePlay would be something NBCUniversal would like to implement, but so far, we have not heard of it being there anytime soon.
- Prime Video: With all of the content Prime Video has, along with the upcoming exclusive NFL Thursday Night Football games, yet it remains unseen on that streaming service.
- Discovery+: Since HBO Max is getting it and Warner Brothers is now Warner Bros. Discovery, and the two services plan to merge into one sometime in 2023, you’d think that it’ll be next to get support for SharePlay. Nothing has been announced by Warner Bros. Discovery or Discovery+ yet, though.
- AMC+: This streaming service has been quietly building itself up. One feature it lacks is SharePlay. Perhaps 2022 will be the year it is added? The good news is the feature is available by subscribing to it through Apple TV Channels in the Apple TV app instead of subscribing and viewing it through the AMC+ app.
- Hallmark Movies Now: Hallmark knows its audience well, that’s for sure. SharePlay could make it an even better service because of its original content users could stream with family and friends through it, which could be extraordinarily handy when the holiday season comes around. Like with AMC+, SharePlay is available by subscribing to it through Apple TV Channels.
