  • Unsubscribing from this app is not documented clearly

    By fgtrhy
    Finding out how to unsubscribe from this app is a pain. They could easily make changes to help the process be easier.
  • More work

    By koopa1980
    I run into the same problem w/ the app not recognizing me as a subscriber, as well as, even having WiFi, always running into the problem of lag and having a hard time watching a series w/o any glitches or problems. I travel a lot and enjoy having my iPad to watch movies and it’s frustrating running into issues pretty much every time.PLEASE FIX,we do pay for this and for what it’s worth I’ve been a HBO CUSTOMER FOR WELL OVER 20 years.thank you and I hope, I TRULY HOPE, your techs can fix these seeming minor problems. Thank you
  • iPad Pro 11 support!

    By InfectedDread
    This app needs support for new iPad Pro 11 screen! Please and thank you!
  • Not letting me log in

    By miranduh98
    I got my subscription through att and it asked the provider that you used to pay for it and att isn’t even an option so I’m paying for something I can’t even use. I just don’t understand how att isn’t an option when that’s the provider I use to pay for it. Fix the problem.
  • Works perfectly on all devices

    By spence.p
    I honestly don’t understand all the negative reviews of this app. I was using HBO GO until Dish and HBO stopped getting along. HBO Now is equally as good, just more expensive. Works great on all devices: old iPad, new iPad, iPhones, old Apple TV, new Apple TV.
  • This was a 5 star app

    By THEMaeker
    I love this service and app, however support for the new iPad still has not been released. I’d love to know when an update can be expected
  • Terrible Apple TV app support

    By a guy who reviews stuff
    On my Apple TV, when I go into the TV app and try to resume watching an episode it loads up the HBO Now app, plays their vain “HBO Now” tag (as if I didn’t know), and then RESTARTS THE EPISODE FROM THE BEGINNING. EVERY. TIME. I canceled Netflix because they won’t support the TV app. I will cancel HBO if they can’t fix their support for it. In 2018 there is no need for me to have to go peruse all of my streaming services individually, and frankly I just won’t do it. Fix the app.
  • Non-intuitive screens, app crashes frequently

    By Kal0710
    I downloaded the iOS app for a weekend and watched a series. The poor UI/UX design made it very clunky to use. The app also crashed frequently and did not remember where I stopped/crashed last time, making it painful to continue to watch. Finally I decided to cancel the subscription for now, hard to justify paying for such bad service.
  • Quality is awful!

    By Aj 55
    The quality of your app on my 4K tv is horrible! Everything is so pixelated it’s terrible!
  • Can’t even watch a show

    By LacrYmosA~
    Every single time I try to watch a show, it buffers like every few minutes without fail. It’s not my internet either, it’s the app. It’s so frustrating when you pay good money for a subscription to HBO but the app won’t even let you enjoy it.
  • Great Contebt - Horrible Video Player

    By HotCuppaHoffy
    I can't understand why HBO cannot put out a decent video player. It constantly skips and lags. Even if you put a show on pause and wait an hour it still does this. It's pretty much unwatchable.
  • Slow & Connectivity Issues

    By JJ70113
    It just can’t keep up with itself. It doesn’t matter what network I’m on or if I’m even on data, it takes forever to load anything—the home screen, a show, an episode. And even once it does load a show, it has choppy playback. Again, doesn’t matter what network or device I’m using. It’s just not built to function smoothly.

    By grtrbrcr
    If no stars was an option, that is what this app would get. I downloaded hbo now off of the playstation store and was trying to open an account on it. It led me to open playstation vue and download it off of there, which would cost an additional $14.99 a month. So I stuck to the app which led me to my phone or computer to open the account. After jumping from one device to the next and finally getting an account established it would not let me access my account from my playstation. They made creating an account so much harder than it has to be. Netflix is so much easier to sign up for, navigate, and enjoy. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS APP
  • I love HBO

    By Oldmanmikey1956
    My favorite subscription channel, by far. I only have one little request. Please, please, please change the font used in your program descriptions when they are selected. The font is so thin, it’s impossible to read across the room on my large screen TV. It isn’t that the font is too small. Just too THIN. I don’t have this problem with ANY of my other TV apps. It’s a little maddening. Like. Hmm. “Rampage...” wonder what that’s about? Well I have to Google it because HBO NOW’s font is too thin to read! LOL.
  • Can’t even log in!

    By kittyhoneybunny
    This app is a mess. I only upgraded to be able to stream tv. What a joke :’(

    By vvarela15
    This app never works. It always crashes/ hangs. You would think the developers at hbo would make sure the app was at least half decent before release. I would stick to streaming for free else where. It’s not as clear but works 100 percent better than this app. Step up your game HBO.
  • Terrible

    By Fdragol417
    The worst app ever......but, gotta have HBO, so, we're stuck with it.
  • HBO Now. More like HBO NO

    By Brad30097
    This is nuts. I love the fact the developers are engaging but this doesn’t seem like a good use of my time. I got rid of Directv for this very reason.
  • I didn’t like the app

    By queenduke
    Everything I wanted to watch wasn’t updated or no good movies and I deleted the app 4 days before my free week was up and it’s still trying to charge me for downloading this app
  • Can’t sign into app

    By Njdhshs
    I’m required to state where/who I signed up with to login. I believe I signed up via apple but even if I’m right that’s not an option. All the available options are services I do not use anyway. As a result I can’t login...
  • Xbox One!

    By IAmLoscar
    The Xbox One version of the app works only about 30% of the time on the Xbox One! It takes 5 minutes to look online and see people have been having issues for a long time. Fix that already! I use this iPhone and the Xbox app. I’ve paid for my first month but it’s probably going to be my last unless some changes occur.
  • Working

    By Sammy-1978
    I had to logout and log back in to fix the issue.
  • Watching Shows is a Pain

    By phendrenaline
    The app works well enough for actually viewing content, but when resuming a series, it can be a pain. When you come back to the app, it doesn’t seem to save where you left off and Continue Watching doesn’t always work. It also doesn’t let you save a series on a list. It only lets you save one episode at a time to your Watchlist, which seems pointless for series. So, every time you come back to the app to resume your show, you might need to go to search and manually search for the show that you’re currently searching through. Please add the ability to save an entire series to a Watchlist.
  • Works vy well for me—give it a try

    By Rina in DC
    I am not technologically sophisticated. I got this app specifically to see “My Brilliant Friend.” I don’t know if the app is brilliant, but I’m having *no* trouble watching my show. I wdnt want other folks to pass this by because of earlier reviews. I’m not saying that those reviews are inaccurate—I really don’t know—but maybe they reflect earlier versions of the app. All I can say is that it’s working great in my limited experience.
  • Aspect ratio and rounded corners fix please

    By Yourself in the future
    These black bars on the new iPads are driving me crazy.
  • Frustrated

    By Nazi Mike
    Why do you guys have to make it SO difficult to sign up for HBO now? I just wanna watch Game of Throne I don’t think that’s too much to ask for
  • Buggy App

    By Clarebear430
    Good idea for non-cable subscribers. But the streaming crashes a lot, and the audio skips.
  • Garbage app

    By jofa480
    What an absolute piece of garbage. Create new HBO Go account screen offers no ability to paste into fields. Integration with saved passwords is terribly slow, choppy, buggy. This is pathetic. How is a company like HBO releasing such blatant garbage?
  • Constant reconnect to iTunes issues

    By coderman
    Great shows, fair application. On a newer ITV not to bad for searching because you can use Siri. On an iPhone the search is worse. What is really aggravating is every single time I open the app up I have to reconnect my subscription to iTunes. And sometimes I get a “cannot connect to iTunes right now, try later”. The ITV is the same way, so that is an HBO issue or the same developer wrote both the iOS app and the ITV app. Either way UX is terrible. I do not have these issues with Netflix or Prime. If you want to keep collecting my $15 a month you are going to have to make it easier to view your shows.
  • Bad cache, bad support - try a different streaming service

    By iDealElan
    Only thing worse than the way HBO Now apps handle cache is their support channel. Don’t pay for this service!!!!
  • Constant pauses on chromecast

    By Juan Rod H
    I like to watch the shows on my tv through chromecast. Lately the playback interrupts 3 or 4 times per episode, for 30 minutes shows. This doesn’t happen with Netflix or Amazon Video, so this is not a problem with my internet connection. This is really annoying
  • Bad

    By ndksbskbskwjdks
    All I want to do is give you money and watch my shows. I don’t want to download your bad app. Thank you.
  • What’s going on with this app??

    By alexandran99
    Ever since the iOS 12 update this app isn’t working properly on my iPad Pro. Sometimes when I open it there’s no option to search for programs. It’s missing a ‘continue watching’ feature so I have to go searching for the last program I was watching. Please take note from Netflix!! I’ve had to delete the app, download it again, restart my iPad just to continue watching whatever it was I was streaming! We pay a subscription for your services so the least you could do is develop an app that works!
  • HGave all the right information on my credit card.Dont know what else I can do.

    By dont want me
  • Terrible App

    By Akitogi
    1. It keeps freezing on my Mac book, safari and Firefox. 2. It doesn’t have a “continue watching feature”. 3. It is a very confusing app, it feels like those apps you download for free to watch shows and yet I am paying $15/month for it. You’d think HBO would put in the effort to make an app that works. SMH
  • No download

    By josquin941
    Netflix, Amazon and others allow download. But not HBO. Makes it useless -- can only watch at home, not on trains, airplanes, etc. I am cancelling subscription because of this.
  • Overbilled by App Store

    By User SF
    I’ve been wrongly billed two and three times each month for this service and going through hell trying to fix and get my money back.
  • The free month trial doesnt work

    By Cami.9817
    I got charged for my free month trial and I didn’t even like this app
  • NOT Full Screen for iPad Pro 11 inches

    By Cameron Liam
    This app is not capacitive with the new iPad Pro 2018, it’s not the full screen under the full screen mode!!! There’re two huge black block on the side!!! They are ugly and uncomfortable...
  • No happy

    By angryladymedina
    I subscribed for the free trial and deleted the app and I was charged a week later of $16.28 , and I contacted apple support and I was not refunded even tho I no longer had the app . Very disappointed in this app and apple support. It’s not 2.99 app it’s $16!
  • Videos playing

    By KingZurich
    It’d be nice if videos actually played, I either have to wait a week or repeatedly tap on a video, not an exaggeration, at least(me being nice) 20 times. And even then if I pause it, their goes the video I was watching and another week wait begins.
  • Really bad interface

    By Onyxguise
    The software can not keep me on the subscribers list. Keeps asking me to sign in with a code, I sign in but never get asked for the code. Then nothing. It only works SOMETIMES. REALLY RIDICULOUS! I expect more from a premium channel like HBO! Come on, people!
  • Late uploading content

    By SS201444
    Why do I pay for an app just to find the shows uploaded to YouTube hours before they show up on the app? If i can just watch the content on a free app I’ll cancel the subscription.
  • Dish

    By Agenuardi
    Thank you for ripping all of us dish subscribers off. Were still paying for your content and services. Never hurt the fans you donkeys
  • Audio/Video almost never match

    By Eri Rhode
    For whatever reason, the audio/video are almost always significantly off, which makes it near impossible to watch anything.
  • So sad

    By joshua2905
    You guys rob money to people. With the auto-renew of the subscription. Don’t ask at the costumers, just do the charge of the credit card. Y feel cheated.
  • Horrible Customer Service!!!!!

    By notmyfavoritecompany
    As a Dish subscriber I have the HBO go app on my iPhone and streaming for free. The adverts for HBO go and HBO now describe these services as “free” and “streaming with a fee” respectively. After HBO was no longer available on Dish I was immediately charged a $14.99 a month fee and no longer have access to my personal information on my account so I cannot cancel my subscription! After “NUMEROUS” emails and calls I have yet to resolve this issue and am unable to speak to a living human being to get it resolved! Even the emails are automated and blame Dish for my inconvenience! This is the worst customer service (if you can call it that!) that I have EVER received (or not received!) from anyone ever!!! No wonder Dish dropped you! If you do not contact me to resolve this issue immediately I will be notifying the BBB, FCC, and anyone else I can. You cannot blame your poor customer service on Dish any longer!
  • Good idea But bad Programers

    By WorldEmpire
    The Programer’s definitely are just building their first app like this. Netflix never had such things happen. During my first movie the second ad kept on playing what a pain. Tried different things but all useless. Loved the movie which was not available on Netflix or Amazon, ended up buying it to watch it. So if any owners actually read this. Get it done otherwise you will need to move over.
  • Not worth subscribing

    By Navin Bhatera
    Awful service - 1. the app never knows what I am watching 2. Counter-intuitive interface. 3. Doesn't work outside US, if you are using the same handset and US number. 4. Doesn't switch seamlessly between laptop, mobile and tablets 5. Can't use the app to watch shows offline
