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?

HBO GO Can't Verify My Directv Account/UPDATE 🤔

Update: Today HBOGO is working on all my streaming devices. I am giving it 3 stars until I can further test it out. I hope everyone else is having the same experience.

First, I am tired of having my review deleted without any explanation. No profanity just truth. The truth is since AT* took over Directv, Directv Now and HBO everything has gone downhill.

Second, After several tech calls to Directv they verified there is a problem with HBO Go. Apparently it is a global problem as people with other services have the same issue.

Third, This is not a standalone IPAD app problem, it's the same on my Roku and even the Directv mobile App. In others words, across all my streaming devices.

Fourth, what steps have you laid out in these reviews? Explain what it' or any of the other nonsensical strings you put in reviews are. Are we to guess how one would use this? It's not a link or anything you can use in the Safari browser. It feels like a nonstarter to me that is a diversion from really offering any real help. There is not even a customer phone number for HBO. Even Directv was stunned by this.

Fifth, there is no good faith offer from HBO to offer a money back resolution or even a free month until it's sorted out. Thanks for ruining another service AT*.

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.
