My roommate and I are planning on watching the special tonight! Has anyone watched it on a Roku yet? I know initially it was said that Roku doesn’t have an HBO Max app.
If you have HBO on your cable system, you can download the HBO Max app on your iPhone for free. Play the concert on the iPhone, press the airplay button on the iPhone and it’ll transmit the concert through your ROKU, the latest version, and you can see the concert or anything else that’s on HBO Max.
The ability to get the HBO app in your ROKU is still not available because of contractual issues. But going through your IPhone is a bypass and it works.
Hello everyone! I can't remember the last time I posted on here, but I couldn't let a day like today pass without coming to join in on some of the fun! I try to post on Twitter when something exciting is happening in Carrie-land, but life just doesn't seem to leave me time for CF anymore.
I haven't had a chance to catch up on the Today show or Instagram Live, but I did catch most of the iHeart radio special when it was on YouTube. We use AT&T for our internet and cell phone service and they are running a promotion for a free 30-day trial for HBOMax using a special AT&T customer code. So, I'm pretty excited that I can watch the My Gift special all month long, although I wish we could buy it to keep forever as well. Anyway, I couldn't wait to watch the special any longer, so I watched it with my mom and my daughter at lunch today. I wasn't able to focus as much as I liked because they both talked during it. I literally don't even remember her singing HYAMLC, lol.
Anyway, I thought special was just beautifully produced. The set was perfect and the costuming was just exquisite. Carrie looked like Holiday Barbie in nearly every dress! My favorite performance was easily OHN, but it has always been my favorite Christmas song. The moment when she sang "Christ is Lord" and the stained glass windows appeared behind her was just breathtaking. I caught myself tearing up more than once during the special, especially watching Carrie with Isaiah in the recording studio and seeing some of the family pictures and videos. I can't wait to watch it a million more times between now and January 2nd (when my free trial ends, lol)!
Just finished! Loved it so much! SITW brought me to tears! Loved Little Drummer Boy and I thought Joyful Joyful sounds so great on this special. I think it’s better being played in the middle instead of opening like on the album.
Any international fan here know how to watch it?
OMG how did you watch this from Singapore?
Dang, HBO Max in not present in Asia, so we have to miss it.
Will someone share the special with international fans? Where is Hil when you need her? Lol
Gosh it's hard being an international fan sometimes when everything is geo blocked. From the snippets I've seen around the place the special looks stunning.
If anyone found a link to watch it, could you please share it? International fans need it
I am having the same trouble here
International fans, look into how to set up a VPN. In theory it should give the ability to subscribe to HBO Max or do a trial if it's not already available in your country.How did watch it from Ireland?

What Is a VPN and How Does It Help Me?
In very simple terms, a VPN connects your PC, smartphone, or tablet to another computer (called a server) somewhere on the internet, and allows you to browse the internet using that computer’s internet connection. So if that server is in a different country, it will appear as if you are coming from that country, and you can potentially access things that you couldn’t normally.
So how does this help you? Good question! You can use a VPN to:
- Bypass geographic restrictions on websites or streaming audio and video.
- Watch streaming media like Netflix and Hulu.
- Protect yourself from snooping on untrustworthy Wi-Fi hotspots.
- Gain at least some anonymity online by hiding your true location.
- Protect yourself from being logged while torrenting.
