New bugs with every update. I just can't believe how it is possible to release software of such low quality. Google cast button stopped working with the latest update. Earlier on it had frequent connectivity issues, random episodes of particular series were simply not castable for unknown reason. Previous and subsequent episodes played just fine. Sounds like a horrible joke, but it is actually how Google cast works in HBO Go app. If you plan to stream hbo go to your Google cast enabled device, think twice. Would rate it even lower now
Poor quality coding, I wish the developers took the original US version and branch it (with frequent merges), instead of maintaining a separate, buggy code base. I use the app either on a Android box connected to TV or to cast the signal to the TV. I do have a HBO GO subscription. Some most annoying bugs making the app virtually unusable: 1. The app does not work with cable connection, only on WiFi (WTF?!), 2. The casting from an Android mobile device generally does not work anymore (well, sometimes it becomes available, but it is infrequent and random), 3. The UI works with touch only, forget about any TV-style remotes, 4. When I get lucky and manage to cast something to the Chromecast, the video often breaks (typically after 15 minutes or more) and I need to restart casting (sometimes many times) 5. Casting works best from a Chrome browser, but even there it is not reliable, often requires many attempts to start a cast. I note it here, because I believe that the Chromecast-side code is a part of the HBO GO app code base. 6. No Android TV support (why?!), even though the US version has it for ages. All in all - a disappointment.
Will i be able to watch anything? Why hbo go need seperate apps while netflix and amazon primes do not? Crash on first launch xd
Bad. Just bad. The app is bad, casting to Chromecast/Android TV always crashes while trying to select original audio language.
Aplikacja ma problemy z działkowej dłużej niż kilka minut. Bardzo szybko ucieka jej cała pamięć i wszystko kończy się crashem. Nie da się nawet katalogu w spokoju przejrzeć i HBO POLSKA ma temat w nosie nie aktualizując jej od miesięcy.
Useless, 3months since last comment of Chromecast not working and still the same
