Good Sh... Stuff! Kinda...


It does what I needed to do, looks nice, and functions as well as the PS3-version of the app. More than satisfied when watching on the device that launched the app.

The functionality with Chromecast, however, is quite poor.
1. Why is the little carrot-arrow the ONLY part of the minimized controls that will maximize to the full control screen?
2. Why do items that are hidden or obstructed visually by the minimized control bar, seem to always have touch preference? I tap any of the mini controls, especially that nearly untappable carrot-arrow, and the app starts playing whatever happened to be underneath. And, when that happens, what I was trying to watch is not available under "continue watching", so I must find it again; restarting from the beginning.
3. Why do the 10-second skip controls persist while casting? Have you ever used other casting apps? The rest convert their 10-second skip controls to 30-second skip when casting. Every control executes after a buffering delay, except pause and (resume) play. So, it takes about 5 seconds to execute a 10-second skip OR a 30-second skip. To put it in perspective, a 30-second skip would be equally frustrating if it takes 15 seconds to execute. And, if a 10-second skip takes 15 seconds to execute, your app should either have a drug habit, or be traveling near the speed of causality (a.k.a. the speed of light).

Yay TV App Integration!

Mad Monk 11

I used to have HBO Now as a subscription from iTunes, but a while back I got HBO free with DirecTV NOW, so I had to switch over to HBO Go. I was totally disappointed that the HBO Go app wasn’t integrated with the TV app from Apple. Well, I just recently checked HBO Go again, and it is integrated with Apple’s TV app now!

The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because when I am in the TV app and I find HBO content, I click the content and I am taken to the content in HBO Go, and I have to click play in HBO Go to start the movie or show. In HBO Now, if I find HBO content in the TV app, I just click it and I am taken to HBO Now and the movie just starts playing. Basically, HBO Go needs to integrate with Apple’s TV app just like HBO Now does.

However, things are functional. A movie or show watched adds to Up Next in the TV app and everything works just fine. Just fix that one little issue and I’ll go up to five stars.

Terrible and nearly useless on devices


This app is an embarrassment (similarly to the showtime anytime app). The navigation is cumbersome and tedious, but the worst thing is that on devices like iPad or my Xbox one, if you don't use it for a few days, it logs you out and you have to go through the ridiculously stupid process of signing in and activating it again. And to do that you have to choose your cable provider...and it only LISTS every provider so you have to scroll through them all to find yours. It does NOT let you search for your provider. HBO I know you have money and I know you could throw a bone to the app developers to fix this electronic rubbish you pass for an app. This app is a digital representation of the laziness of the company and the shear disdain HBO truly has for their customers. If I didn't automatically get HBO through my building, I would never pay for this garbage. I'm sure no one from the company will read this, but I hope potential customers do, and run the other way. Do not give them your money!!
