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..
Content is great. This app continuously glitches. This is true across ios and android. Its been happening for years its the single worst part of this app even though content is good, makes me not want to use it and quite often I just give up. These issues also apply to HBO GO via browser. Thanks guys, looking forwards to seeing a solution for this. #howauuyoungman
Keeps saying content temporarily unavailable but the problem is that it never is available no matter how long you wait or update the app. I would expect such a better product from people like HBO.
I can't even log into my account anymore for time warner/ Spectrum. Every time I chose to log in the screen just goes black with the only option to go back. This seems to happen every update.
Update: cannot log in with my provider. Says I do not have an hbo subscription even though I do, and am literally watching hbo on my tv while writing this. App will not let me log in with different credentials or another provider. Every time it just tries my previous info and tells me im not subscribed... Without a doubt 99% of the time when I open this app, it will crash. Most of the time after it says it crashed, it will crash again trying to close itself. even if it worked like it was designed, the design needs a lot of work. The netflix app is much better esp with chromecast. It will not save what ep or location you are on and pressing back takes u to the home screen. Also poor searching and layout options
HBO GO, is no where close to the ability of Hulu Or Netflix, Had HBO GO for a couple years the stability of the service is horrible and a year later no matter how I use HBO GO, it fails to operate as it should who ever runs this area of HBO Is pretty clueless as to how poor it is. Avoid dropped movies and passwords just get NETFLIX, HULU OR gees even Amazon provides a better service and quality. Years ago was the best, now just a shadow of what they were
Buffering problems! Constant buffering. It is not my router. I can watch the same program (ex. The Sopranos) on Prime without any buffering.
