Reviews

Horrible interface

1
The app crashes constantly; loads more than any other streaming app. It takes longer to load videos as well. Especially if I’m using my Chromecast. Everything feels sticky/clunky navigating through the app. It’s a chore every time I want to watch my favorite shows.

Won’t load

1
I’ve had the same package for the last 4 years with HBO yet haven’t been able to get the app to load for the past several months. I’ve checked for app updates and have deleted/redownloaded several times but still can’t get the app to load. I only keep my package for the HBO app. Waste of a benefit and really doesn’t make my cable package worth it. Although my next home has the same provider available I’ll most likely be cancelling when we move next month.

Get developers to match quality of your shows

This app in incredibly slow and stops like its buffering all the time while I’m watching things. I have 1Gbps, fiber internet. I have no issues streaming Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, or PS4. The HBOGO App has some inefficiencies that make it slow and lag all the time. It’s very frustrating because I pay for this and Love HBO Shows and movies!! Please have someone QA your code for efficiency, speed, and resource usage.

Login is broken.

1
Not able to login. I’m on iOS 12.1.2 (latest at time of this review) on iPhone XS Max. I’m trying to login with DirectTV Now (part of AT&T / HBO) bundle. Previously I had no issues logging in. Login seems to have broken over the holidays. The embedded webview spits out a black background with black text (how did you guys go to production with this??). Here is the JSON: {"message":"Invalid authentication response","type":"Error","status":500,"code":0} Developers (mobile, BE, QA)...what are you guys doing? This is embarrassing. You should **test** changes before releasing. Read another review with a dev response pointing to a page with these steps: force close, connection speed, restart device, update software, try another device (also broken on on Apple TV 😔), delete and reinstall app. Tried all, and nothing helped.

CANNOT LOG IN!

I haven't been able to log in for days now! It's annoying how this app keeps kicking me out and now I can't even log in. It tells me to choose provider, then it won't continue. I've deleted it and downloaded it again a few times, doesn't make a difference. Please fix it. In the meantime, I'm watching Netflix. You will lose customers if the app doesn't work well.

Not usable

1
It used to crash all the time or issues with chrome cast. Now I am not able to logon anymore; getting something like a Java error message. The worst of all streaming Apps

Fantastic streaming service with a bad app and interface

3
HBO’s line up and productions are probably the best all around but the app, including on Apple TVs and android based TVs, are very weak. 1. it STILL won’t work properly on the new iPad Pro! 2. You have to log in all the time! It won’t remember you for more than a few days. 3. It won’t track what you are watching properly. 4. It doesn’t handle multiple users. Their interfaces should improve to match those of Netflix, for example.

No iPad Pro 2018 resolution support

2
Please update this app to use the entire screen of the 2018 iPad Pros. The vertical letterboxing really detracts from the experience.

Google cast function keeps disappearing, iOS 12, iPhone

2
Either provide a function or don’t, but be clear with your users. The last thing HBO should want is people conflating app exasperation with content experience.

Looking Forward to Canceling HBO

I almost can’t wait to cancel HBO at toward the end of 2019. T HBO is canceling support for Boxing and I simply will not continue to subscribe.
