Review from A Google User
Need an Android 3.2 version I was running HBOGo on my Vizio tablet but when I upgraded from Gingerbread to Honeycomb the app stopped working! I just saw here that it is not compatible with Honeycomb. :( Hopefully HBO can release a newer version for Honeycomb...very soon! You would think HBO would have done something already since many android users are running Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich on their tablets and cells. Update: still can't use HBO go on my Vizio, but it works great on my Nexus7 and Fire HD..
Cancelling my subscription b/c of app I bought the hbo subscription specifically to be able to watch movies and shows while I'm traveling without having to drag my computer along. The app won't play ANYTHING, just a bank screen then it crashes. Not worth the cost of the subscription. Back to netflix for me.
Recent update did not fix any issues. Chromecast does not stay connected. The app is extremely slow when navigating around it. It never remembers progress. App developers, please go use the Netflix app for a model of how a video streaming app should work. Edit: In response to the suggestion to contact the support team, I've emailed support about 3 times over the last year and haven't heard anything back.
New Update Review It still works & plays over Chromecast, but is unable to disconnect. Was the best TV Video Streaming App (still the best for content,) but it took 5 steps back, with the new, super buggy update. Also people, the new UI is nothing special. Hell, I think Starz & FX have a better platform. SMH HBO...SMH
All good before update. I just updated this app and suddenly it loves to crash. I am trying to watch Ballers and it gets as far as the HBO logo, then when it comes time to show the program, "Unfortunately HBO GO has stopped." WTF did you guys do?!
Make the app usable! I'm sick of having to wait more than 30 secs to be able to get to the home screen, in a 150mbs down connection! Then later look for the series I want, then when I'm watching a video on my chromecast, and I want to either pause, forward or just do another video, it takes me another 30 seconds because I'm taking back to the home screen instead of where I was. This app its so annoying! Fix it! Netflix is great and way more content... Fix it!
Shuts down every time you try to watch a show. Doesn't play anything. Like what is the point in paying cable and then having a way to watch a episode on a app when not at home and then now not being able to do that anymore. This needs to be fix!! Try to watch something and it say HBO has stopped. Horrible service!
