Misleading Verbiage for Trial
I was planning to subscribe to HBO NOW in a few weeks or so when I had a bit more money and thought I had not utilized the free trial yet (it was not in my expired subscriptions list) so I thought I would try that out and by the time I was charged in a month I'd have some extra money. The verbiage in the trial subscription is very misleading and I believe it is intentionally so. The pop up for me to confirm aligned with the previous indications of the free trial being offered, indicating I would be charged on July 13 (one month from the sign up date) but I found instead that I was charged immediately. I only noticed this because I was already in my settings checking my previous subscriptions, and otherwise might not have noticed for days (apple purchases usually come out of my account several days after they've been made) which would not have allowed me to expediently resolve this and receive a refund from Apple. I think this verbiage is purposefully misleading and should be changed, and it should be clear when there's a transition between reinstating a previous subscription or starting a free trial.
Content is great, app is trash
1. Clicking a movie automatically plays, doesn't give a description, would be nice to discover things....nope unless you know what it is you're out of luck
Edit: This has been fixed by allowing access to description by clicking the title
2. Chromecast...can't scrub after you've started the video, close the menu, reopen (which is literally anytime you would want to scrub, e.g. Rewind)
Edit: This has been fixed! Woo!
3. Chromecast again...when you do get the ability to scrub, 80% of the time it hangs and disconnects you...I think due to this bug is why they've purposefully enacted the horrible user interaction of #2
Edit: This has been fixed! Woo!
4. There's no chainplay...are you kidding me? What year is this? If you're watching an older show you literally have to go search again for the show and manually hunt down the next episode after each one.
5. Watchlist is useless...who wants to put individual episodes in a watchlist one by one? And new one's don't get added automatically.
Just began my HBO subscription and if the app doesn't improve, I'll be unsubscribing soon
My very first experience with an HBO subscription was through this app and it is absolutely terrible. More than half of the time when I choose to add something to my watchlist, I click the "Add to Watchlist" button and I either get a generic error message telling me to try again later, or it will appear as though the show has been added to the watchlist but will not actually appear in my watchlist section.
Sometimes I'll even get this error over 10 times in a row before I just give up.
Seems as though there is a lot of great content as far as movies and tv shows go, but all of that is worthless to me and a worthless investment by HBO if their app'a user experience is as terrible as it is now.
I just signed up for an HBO NOW account for $15/mo and if this is how they treat their customers, I will be unsubscribing soon.
I expect to see updates or receive some kind of customer support contact or HBO will have not only lost a subscriber, but will have developed an advocate for others to unsubscribe as well.
