An absolutely dismall app. Forgets progress per episode or series. Doesn't remove series from your queue even if you have finished them. You can't add whole series to watch list... HBO I love your shows. Give them an app that the shows deserve, or I will VOTE WITH MY WALLET ...
I had to write a new review because this app is getting even worse than it was. Serious issues when using Chromecast. Doesn't remember which episodes I have watched. How can it be so hard to make this app work. Netflix app keeps getting better all the time and HBO app keeps getting worse all the time. Why don't you hire a new company to redesign and develop the app to meet at least the minimum need for the app to work and deliver what it is supposed to do. Completely useless app. Great shows though.
The app often offers me the already watched episode at first start, keeps forgetting that I completely watched an episode if I pause something while watching on the chromecast and for some reason has no subtitles for parts of GoT where people speak Valyrian, only english subtitles. I guess the translator was only sent audio? TL;DR: Lousy app.
The rating says it all - this is an app disliked by many. And it has been for a long time. There are serious issues with casting to the Chromecast 2 - it forces it to reboot! This has been an issue for several months now. But it works just fine with the original Chromecast! So I have to have both Chromecast devices installed on the TV just to be able to stream HBO. But this is not an issue when streaming from Netflix, YouTube, or any other streaming apps (e.g. Barnkanalen). The horror... The horror.
Works perfectly fine on my tab except it keeps forgetting the last episode and sometimes the series I watched. Doesn't work on my phone. Says that the service is unavailable all the time. I don't have access to my laptop or phone from last week that's why installed it on my phone. Netflix works perfectly fine and the other apps too. I feel like I'm paying for nothing.
One of the crappiest apps I have ever used. Very disappointed since there isn't anything else available in case you want to watch HBO. I would think that a company as large as HBO would have have the resources to develop a working and decent app. The new update (released in september) also crashes Chromecast, so basically I can't watch any HBO shows at the moment.
Minor bug fixes
