Lack of coverage 1/5
Netflix is worldwide.. what’s stopping you?
Update FIX BUGS ALREADY!! 1/5
For what you pay for this App they DO NOT DO BUG FIXES FAST ENOUGH. I currently can’t even play shows due to its constantly say “ERROR PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER”. I pay for this service now give me what I paid for which is to watch my shows, but I can’t watch my shows cause this App is beyond broken. Believe me in order to watch I have to delete the whole app then download it again put in my credentials and then I can watch but if I want to watch later on the day after being done it’s a BIG MAJOR NO! Cause “ERROR PLEASE TRY AGAIN LATER”. $15 a month for this??? Fix it!
Lack of new iPad screen support 2/5
It has been couple months since the new iPads were released, and still HBO Now is not supporting it. Hopefully it will be updated before April GOT season start???
Needs Offline Feature 4/5
App is good, may need some interface improvements but it is really missing an offline feature to watch shows. That is the major flaw
Bugs, bugs, bugs 1/5
I am able to get this app to hang by inserting a complex string in the password field. I can repeat the hang over and over again using different strings, using much simpler strings than the first. In the era of needing complex passwords, you would think that HBO would have tested this before releasing
Clunky garbage 1/5
Take a trip back to the 90’s when you would click on something and wait 1 minute for the next page.
No 2018 iPad Pro support 2/5
No 2018 iPad Pro support
Almost Perfect 4/5
I love HBO’s stand-alone streaming service, especially now they updated the watchlist to include an entire series.
My only gripe is that you can’t download content to watch offline, Netflix and Starz have this option. I would give this app 5 stars if that feature was available.
Update for 11in iPad Pro 2/5
Update the display size for 11 iPad Pro
Update for new iPad Pro 2/5
By Jeff B
App needs to be updated for 11 inch iPad Pro! Surprised it is taking so long!
About the App itself 3/5
The content is GREAT with no doubt. But the software just have so many problems.
And please support iPad Pro 11.
Don’t do it 2/5
By Seattle FF Wiseguy
HBO Now is a poorly written program that underperforms next to other streaming services. The content is great because it’s produced by HBO, but the app execution is terrible. There are constant lags and timeouts which are unique to this program. HBO won’t release content until a day after its debut except for certain exceptions like Vice News which is topical and needs to be seen the day of. Because content is not immediately available I end up watching the HBO shows I want on YouTube because I’m not willing to wait a day.
I subscribed because I feel an obligation to pay for the content that I enjoy like Bill Maher’s Real-time, Game of Thrones and Westworld. At this point since they have done nothing to improve the performance of HBO Now in the years that I’ve had it I’m going to save myself $15 a month and just watch my shows on YouTube where the audio will be imperfect, but at least it’s available in a timely manner and I can participate in workplace discussion without being a day behind everyone else. That is what happens when you rely on HBO Now.
If this app were improved and content were made available sooner I would probably subscribe again, but at this point there is no indication that that is about to happen. It feels like HBO wants us all to go back in time and plug back in to cable. Well, no thanks! I’ll keep streaming for now and get my HBO content from YouTube or Amazon Prime. Bye Felicia!
Not Working 1/5
Trying to watch the True Detective S3 premiere, but the app gives giving me an error, while “helpfully” informing me to try again later.
I do get it, why am I allowed to download it but when I press on the app, it says that its allowed only for US territory
App crash during true detective 1/5
Users who had issues with the app during the premiere of True Detective should receive a free month for this service. There is no reason why the app should have crashed. I’ve been a customer since day 1. This is not the first time that this happened.
App is down.
Doesn’t work on my iPhoneXS 1/5
Just paid $16 and the app screen is all black? I’m using the newest phone out and y’all are charging me for a service that doesn’t work? Then tried to use it on my LG smart TV. Surprise surprise....no way to do it as HBO doesn’t care to spend the money to have software compatible for LG smart TVs. Y’all are slacking! Will be cancelling ASAP if there’s no way to view your content! Get with the times HBO....I can watch SHOWTIME anywhere, maybe get some of their app developers? What a pain it is to view your awesome content....very annoying
Service Down 1/5
Service engineers can’t keep the service up
Not very good 1/5
By Stl cardinalsfanindc
I’m in the middle of watching a show after having watched many shows. All of a sudden I get a network error hbo now will now restart messgage. 1) it never restarts 2) after trying to restart all I get is a black screen. Sure glad a pay 15 bucks a month for something that doesn’t work
Can’t handle premiers 1/5
You would think they would be prepared for the traffic incurred on premier dates for new shows but it crashes every time. I’m sure game of thrones season 8 will crash as well
This app is trash 1/5
The hbo now app is literally garbage. It never works and has completely crashed on my phone. Just trying to watch game of thrones in peace, why is watching tv so difficult anymore?
THE WORST THING TO EVER EXIST 1/5
By Don't dude don't get it
I swear I wasted my time and money on this dumb app. It starts off okay and then like a day or two later it ACTS TF UP!!! Don’t get this!! Don’t waste yo money or time smfh
Crashes constantly or doesn’t load. 1/5
Even after updating, this app is basically useless. If I didn’t have an Apple TV (meaning if I didn’t have another medium through which I could access my account) I would consider it fraud.
App is not working 1/5
After i played 1st episode, the app is simply is not opening, when i press hbo app is just a black screen, what the heck guys?
They falsely claim that family sharing is allowed 1/5
Since this is a free app and the value comes from the subscription, which is not shareable, it feels misleading to claim that Family Sharing is supported by this app. Other than that, app is ok. Frequently encounter streaming issues and app often feel unresponsive.
Why does my membership for HBO now not transfer to my Sling account? Why is it asking me to pay another fee?? Is this 14.99 subscription only good for my phone???
No more hbo now 1/5
No longer accessible through PS3, no longer getting my money. I’m not buying a new device, so they don’t get 16.99 a month from me anymore. I’m better off, it’s just not worth it anymore. The content is rarely new and just not worth it. HBO is struggling
so slow 3/5
the name HBO “NOW” implies a sense of urgency on behalf of the app that i have yet to see... it takes about 20 tries to get a single video to queue up and play. the audio and picture often lag and it takes several minutes to load. at this point i’m spending more time trying to load my episode than watching it. totally a fwp but it really is annoying and i’m thinking about cancelling my subscription and just renting the dvd from the library (so old school!!)
Only alphabetical listings! 3/5
Do the developers realize how hard it is to find quality content when the only way to view the content is alphabetical? PLEASE add Popular to the lists.
Add an option to turn off autoplay 1/5
Even Netflix has the option to turn off autoplay for tv shows. I’d prefer to watch all the credits and not miss whole episodes when I fall asleep. More options = better viewer experience.
Please Update For New iPad Pro 3/5
I have an iPad Pro 11 now for at least a couple of months and you haven’t updated the app to use the full screen. I love your programming but hate watching it on my iPad Pro because of the boxed in picture. Other streaming apps like YouTube TV and Amazon Prime Video have adopted the new iPads. Please update your app.
I received this free for & told it would be 4.99 a month afterwards .. I was jus charged $16 .. nope, nada, nil, NO .. I want my money back and I am uninstalling it .. I would never pay so much for one channel .. and now it won’t let me cancel my account
HBO NOW & PlayStation 3 1/5
I am very disappointed with HBO NOW, I have to cancel my subscription because it is not supporting the PlayStation 3. Additionally, they removed my access via my PlayStation 3 on 1/8 which is prior to my last day on my billing. So, I can watch till 1/12 on my phone only.
Good channel; horrible app 2/5
I didn’t give this just one star because I love the programming on HBO so much... but they have GOT to do something about their apps. They’re terrible in functionality and don’t come close to the ease of using Prime or Netflix. Sometimes I just give up and go watch one of those. How long til HBO gets a clue - and a new developer?
Please Update for New iPad Pro (2018) 1/5
This app has not been updated for the new aspect ratio on the iPad Pro 2018. As it is now, there are huge black bars on either side of the app, and it is impossible to play videos in full screen.
Worst streaming ever! 1/5
So little to choose from, constant buffering. Don’t waste your money!
Love HBO but the app does not work 1/5
By Kate martin
The app does not work with chromecast at all. When you select chrome cast the app just crashes. I have even deleted and downloaded the app again hoping it will help but it doesn’t
Unable to update billing 1/5
By i hate hbo
Terrible app. Unable to update billing. I get error codes on both PC and PlayStation. This is pathetic considering how much money they make
Not optimized for 2018 iPad Pro! 2/5
By pruthvi malempati
The app does not appear to use the whole screen. Has a black border all around.
La app no es ni comparada con la de HBO España tiene más contenido.
I just download it 1/5
Hi, is there any difference between HBO streaming& go?
I download both. Please clarify..
Is it free?
Good content, terrible execution 1/5
Do you want to pay for something that doesn’t work? HBO NOW is for you! I’m being billed but when I try to sign in HBO tells me to renew. Pretty frustrating, so I decided to cancel. Seems like HBO is trying to stop sharing of accounts to the point where my account doesn’t work. I’ll just have to pony up for a month when GOT comes out in the year 2039
$14.99 content, 99¢ user interface 1/5
The app experience is very first generation concept. With the growth in U.I. done by Netflix and Hulu. With HBO, coming late to the game, they should have done a copy and paste.
Forget about it 1/5
By no to hbo
A total scam. Does not stream and near impossible to cancel DO NOT PURCHASE
I want to cancel 1/5
By Roxy DLC
It’s supposed to be easy to cancel at any time but I have been trying for the last 2 months and I can’t find a phone number or button to cancel. I am very frustrated.
High subscription fee, really slow updates! 3/5
The new 11 inch ipad has been released for months, but there is still no support and optimization for that!
Huge black borders out there is really annoying. How come no one in HBO team can fix this problem while other apps deal it so quickly???
Very bad. Needs a lot of work. Don’t download this app.
Login issues 1/5
I am a direct tv subscriber, recognizes I have a subscription but loops and does not allow a login on iPad. Makes app unusable.
Disappointing Indeed 2/5
HBO is a huge company, and for some reason they can’t make a decent streaming app that doesn’t lag. Go Figure!! It shouldn’t matter if you have to use chrome cast or roku. Thank you for creating the free trial at least. I will definitely not be spending $15 a month for starts and stops.
