Review from Michael Knight
Good but to glitch. The app itself is good. It has a lot of good movies and TV shows. However it will suddenly stop and try to buffer for no reason. It claimed the internet is not connected or that there was an error. Once it kicks you back to the selection screen though you can hit play immediately and it will work. Fix this glitch and it would be a great app.
Would like to see better experience when I'm binge watching shows. The next episode doesn't come on automatically while Chromecasting and I have to open the app and scroll through shows to get to GOT. Then pick the season, then scroll to my episode, then hit play. It would be nice if there was an easier way to get to the next episode. Also I would like to be able to put a series in the watchlist instead of just one episode. Seems to take longer to buffer when streaming thru 4g. Netflix and Comcast apps don't have as many freezes on same network.
This app is total garbage now. Total garbage. Only use it because there isn't an HBO app available for my smart TV. This app worked OK before the update, still had a few issues with connection and quality, but now, dear Lord, this app is broken. It takes forever to load, more bad quality, and is constantly disconnecting from the chromecast. You try to navigate to somewhere in an episode, it disconnects. You pause it, it disconnects. Absolutely atrocious. You'd think since we pay a decent amount for HBO that their app would at least work as it is a part of the service that I am paying for. Seriously disappointing, HBO.
This app is horribly executed. Absolutely awful. (I have a brand new Nexus 6p) The screen jumps all over the place while scrolling. Notifications appear and will not go away when you click the x or slide them away. And the app randomly rotates upside down all the time. I'd delete if there was another HBO streaming option.
For this to work on my ps4, i put in my comcast info, and my email, and no matter how many times i have request new codes, on the tv or email, i can not watch anything from HBO. I have spent 30 mins trying to make this work, and it no codes will make it work on my ps4. Another huge let down by HBO. Not 1 min after submiting this it worked... very aggrivating
One of the absolute worst designed apps period. Shows are great, but that's not actually the app. Terrible controls, lacking in basic features other streaming apps had as basics years ago. They bank on everyone putting up with their waste of an app because of content.
I use consolidated communications. The login screen from hbo go app doesn't even appear anymore! I haven't used it in three months and just now decided I really want to use this app. Other providers like at&t and consolidated cable work though!
