Ratings and Reviews
Works, but still room for improvement
The app works great, when it works. The app will crash from time to time if you try to do more than it can handle, especially when connected to chromecast or another device. The app will also spontaneously lose connection, even if your internet connection is stable, though this is now very rare. Overall, the app is great when it works. The streaming is almost always high quality and buffering takes very little time, this is heavily dependent on your own connectivity, but it is also good to know that the service itself is highly responsive.
They also just made an improvement to ‘favorites’: you can now add your favorite series to your list of favorites. Proof that if you have some patience, they will eventually help make the app better for everyone. Keep up the good work!
Finally, anyone giving a low rating due to their own technical difficulties doesn’t know what they are doing. They obviously don’t know how to troubleshoot their own problems or request help through hbo’s support group, so don’t let those people influence your decision to use the app. It works fine for anyone who knows the basics.

Hi, thank you for your feedback. We will go ahead and pass this along to our team. Thank you. HBO GO Customer Support.
First, HBO content is astounding today. The movies they pick up aren’t the best but occasionally they’ll pick up rights to something worthwhile. The current series’ (as well as older shows) are the best of the best and essential in my opinion.
The rub is the app itself. I’ll often watch an episode or two on my iPad (6th Gen - less than 3 months old - so a hardware problem seems unlikely). The app used to operate like clockwork, but over the past couple months I get weird error messages that say I can’t sign into my cable provider (Cox). I’ve had to delete and reinstall the app 3 times for that reason alone. There also are (what I’d guess) server issues. It’s become pretty common that the app will say “content unavailable, try later,” which is super annoying (and never an issue on other streaming apps.
To HBO: I’ll say this. You have the best content around. Don’t skimp on your streaming app/s and IT infrastructure. There’s a lot of content that I won’t won’t put on in our living room on the main TV because we have a 2nd grader and this makes the ability to stream to a tablet/personal device important. Don’t lose subscribers by trying to cut corners on our ability to stream.

Can’t sign in at all on any iOS device, literal garbage
I tried following their walkthrough and have literally wasted 30 mins of my life trying to sign into this garbage app after it for some reason kicked my previous sign in out that had been working fine for months. And now it just keeps on looping back to picking a provider except with a black screen with no options! So it is literally impossible to sign in and it just keeps throwing you into a loop of frustration hell. On top of that say you use a password manage if you tab out of the app at any point even if you’ve passed a step and say need to sign into your phone provider and want to copy that password from your manager it’ll back all the way out again so you can’t do anything. This app needs some serious work because it’s literally non functional and I have zero idea why and their website walkthroughs don’t help at all if the problem is with the app itself, which is clearly is.
