Ratings and Reviews
What happened? Problem now Fixed!
Updated again 5/5/19: my iPad did not recognize Charter/Spectrum as my provider. I signed out of Charter on my iPad then signed back in under Spectrum and now the HBO Go app works. That may help others who are having the same problem.
Updated 5/4/19: I tried the steps to get in to HBOGo from the link as the representative said below and still can not get in to the app. It still shows three blinking dots but nothing else, then times out after entering Spectrum as my provider in the log in screen. I also contacted HBO with my information as the representative asked. Still not a happy customer. If something works so I can get in, I will change my 1 star rating for the HBO app. I really do not want to leave such a horrible review and hope HBO does whatever is necessary to make me a happy customer once again.
HBO Go used to work on my iPad in the past but now it does not recognize Spectrum when I try to log in. I am paying for HBO but am not getting all of what I am paying for. What gives?

Could be so much more
Yes, it does let me watch HBO on the GO but it requires either WiFi or cellular. Even with the “WiFi only” selected it will just give notification and if you click it off, it will just use data... the app needs offline playback soooo bad. The rating is based on the lack of that feature. The menu is what it is, could also be a lot better but the one thing I’d love to see is offline playback. The data use per episode is roughly 0.75GB and unless you’re on an unlimited plan, that will add up super quickly. Even if you only allow downloads for original content (like Netflix does) it would be worth it since that’s what most of us are here for anyways.

Love HBO, The worst interface
It’s not like HBO doesn’t know this is the case - in trying to make themselves about the content as opposed to being Netflix they’ve slacked hard on the interface. Forget curated content, they need to focus on updating this so it’s not glitchy/slow/unresponsive/poor when working. At this point the cost benefit of watching HBO over other places turns on the quality of the service not the content. It’s sad too because it’s another case where HBO has fallen behind resting on its own content laurels unable to see that access to and means of watching is more important - prime example of a company that went after top grads and candidates for their content group and then just filled hired the first resumes in on the UI team
