  • Not as bad a people say

    By Art Lopez🥰
    I got this app to watch Game of Thrones, the app is great very easy to use I’ve been using chrome cast it’s much less glitchy than Netflix casting. I haven’t gone through the unsubscribtion process but I haven’t noticed any problems at all
  • Not Full Screen on iPad Pro

    By Eric Guan
    Can I get full screen on my iPad Pro? Thanks!
  • Interfaceless

    By nooooooooooo
    For being such a powerful media company, HBO’s streaming service has the worst interface I have ever experienced. On a computer, the mouse doesn’t disappear, you have to delicately move it to the bottom of the screen for it not to show. The blue loading dots pop up every few seconds regardless of wether or not the video is buffering. When transitioning episodes, the screen goes off full screen so you have to reset it and deal with the whole mouse thing again. In the app, there are similar issues, the next episode doesn’t play automatically, also the “continue watching” feature is useless. Closed captioning, the font size is inconsistent and settings don’t save. All of these little annoying things are nonexistent in every other video streaming interface I’ve ever come across, even those backalley free streaming sites. Whoever runs HBO’s interface programming needs to be replaced. Luckily for them, I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones so I’m sticking it out for the last season. Once that’s over, I’m buying the series from amazon and cutting off HBO Now faster than Illyn Payne cut off Ned Stark’s head.
  • Not downloading

    By Blsjdirnfhcj
    Crappy app is not downloading, and websites keep going to App Store to download the app that is not downloading
  • This is easy

    By KSK#
    Simple review “hey HBO dummies. Look at any other streaming app!” Multiple profiles, stop auto play etc.
  • Update for iPad Pro 11

    By Pradeepmohan
    Is there going to be a update for iPad Pro 11 screen size?
  • Waste of my time

    By danihutch8
    This is quite possibly the worst app I’ve ever downloaded in my life. Anytime I try to watch a show it buffers every 2 minutes and takes forever to start back up. I have a strong WiFi connection and no other issues with other streaming apps such as Netflix. Something has got to give.
  • New version is garbage

    By Robby
    The latest update made the app far worse. Navigation is much more confusing (and it wasn’t good before), and now several individual episodes are having problems for me, making most of what I watch unwatchable. They better fix this soon, because it’s a lot of money to spend per month on a service that doesn’t work
  • Disappointing

    By this makes it more frustrating
    Apparently PS3 is no longer supported. So paying $14.99 a month isn’t enough, I am expected to pony up for a PlayStation upgrade if I want to watch on a full size tv. Also am struggling with specific episodes playback not loading if I try to watch on my iPhone.
  • Great content, terrible app

    By Hacksoccer1028
    The irony of watching a fantastic show like Silicone Valley by streaming on this terrible app is not lost on me. As the boys dialogue about compressing video files to allow for the best ever streaming quality, I laugh and punch my wall out of frustration because this terrible app is constantly freezing. The app literally buffers and freezes every 10 minutes. The user interface is also terrible, but that’s not as bad as not being able to watch the content. I like being able to stream on multiple devices, but as a cable subscriber, I think it’s time to delete this app and unsubscribe. Do yourself a favor and do the same.
  • Screen size doesn’t work with new iPad Pro

    By iPhoneUser63
    Bad screen size.
  • You may or may not get to watch

    By quietfeth
    This app, and the one on Amazon are both crap. I don’t have any trouble watching anything on any other streaming app except HBO. I can watch something on this app maybe 2x a month. Again, NO OTHER STREAMING APP (Hulu, Metflix, Directv Now) has any issues playing movies or shows. Every time I reach out to Customer support, it’s always the same thing... uninstall, reboot, reinstall, make sure you have the latest version, make sure your device is updated, blah blah blah... after having this app for 6mths don’t you think I’ve already done all of this 10x before I reached out to you?!?! You’d think as much as they are making, they could afford to have decent apps. HBO - Please do NOT reach out to me with the SAME INSTRUCTIONS YOU SEND EVERYONE FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. I’ve already done them hundreds of times. Don’t reach out unless you’re actually going to fix the problem.
  • I love the app and content but,

    By Nathan 1492
    The newest iPad Pro came out several months ago and the screen size still isn’t supported. To watch my shows I have to endure the black bars normally associated with widescreen video which is fine but to now have a lovely pair of side bars is getting old pretty fast. Please update and fix this soon.
  • Crashy McCrasherton

    By Crobinson417
    App and casting is pretty spotty, signed directly into firestick and that works best
  • Interface has become very user unfriendly

    By tenorth
    It was never very easy to use, but this latest version on my AppleTV is horrendous. You now have to -every time- go to the top right “browse” option to select a category such a series or movies. Whose bright idea was this? It makes for a very disjointed interface that has zero flow. To change categories you have to go back to the top right of the screen to to the browse option, using the equally horrendous new AppleTV remote with touchpad. Is this a conspiracy between Apple and HBO to see how hard they can make their products to use? The previous version of HBONOW let you move from one category by scrolling to the left panel and then scrolling down to the next category. Can I have that back please?
  • Happy but hate the updates

    By Navi W.
    Since the 7th (last update) the app won’t work for me. I can’t watch anything. Nothing loads, while the rest of my apps run perfectly fine. It’s done this before I couldn’t watch for 2 months, and still ended up paying for the subscription. I love the GoT and I always re watch it but with the last season coming up I’m really annoyed that I’m paying for something that doesn’t even work.

    By MaddiRenee
    Wow. This is the worst app ever. I cannot believe HBO. With all these bad reviews it really is amazing they do nothing about it. I am a dish customer and refuse to go to direct tv because they cannot come to an agreement with DISH. All hbo wants is people like me to go to direct tv because guess what? Hbo and direct tv are both owned by AT&T. Nope. We will just enjoy showtime and other premium channels. Done with HBO. You can watch bill maher on you tube for free. Cannot give zero stars but that's what they deserve
  • Great content. Garbage developers.

    By The Faj
    The app is awful. Design is awkward and implementation is sloppy at best. It violates all sorts of App Store rules, too. Even though you can pay via iTunes, this app requires you to create an HBO account so they can track your purchase and web browsing habits. This is against all of Apple’s rules, but you know—it’s a big company so the rules don’t apply to HBO. Love the tv. Hate these entitled low IQ developers. Making a good app is not difficult if you have good people. Fire the tech and design leads.
  • Do NOT subscribe !!!

    By NoNickNamesRemaining14325
    No “”””Free Trial”””” No way to unsubscribe, then you get charged. .... Forever. You’ve been warned!
  • iPad Pro 11 display

    By jesseenguyen
    The HBO NOW app needs to be updated to fit the display of the new iPad Pro 11 ! I’ve emailed for the past two months. Please update !

    By thefirstofitsname
    Please, add an offline feature!!!!
  • Won’t stream

    By lstephenson13
    I’m 8 feet away from my WiFi, in the same room, direct line of sight. Hulu and Netflix are doing just fine, but this app has yet to load any movie or tv show episode. I’ve tried streaming multiple videos to no avail. I even closed all the apps, disconnected WiFi, and restarted my iPad, set it all back up and tried again, and my iPad timed itself out (10 minutes) and locked/went to sleep with the three little blue dots flashing. Hopeless.
  • HBO

    By Maldrichfeekes
    Absolutely awful can’t get unsubscribed and getting charged $15 a month for this crap
  • Streaming limit

    By Cheechiie
    For $15 a month I expect to be able to stream whenever I want. Netflix and Hulu are both cheaper and allow more than 3 streams at a time. Not happy at all.
  • Major glitch

    By Hellsrath
    I forgot my pin. The App will send you an email with a link to reset it. The link works. However, it forces me to enter a “code you see on your TV“. What TV? I subscribe to the Hulu live streaming service and have no TV subscription and don’t use the TV! I watch on the phone. This makes it impossible to reset.
  • SCAM!!!

    By dook1998
    Signed up for 7day free trail on 2/4 and was confirmed that my free trail would end 2/11 through email. On 2/11 I sign on to my account to cancel my free trail before my card is charged and come to find that they already charged my card! When I called customer service they tell me that my free trail ended on 2/10 (I have the emails to prove the trail ended 2/11) and that there is nothing they can do as they have STRICT NO REFUND policy. Horrible customer service tricking you w terms and conditions.
  • Login every time you open the app

    By Hlittledog
    Seriously. Do you want people to have crappy passwords? Cause that’s how you get people to have crappy passwords. Why make them enter it on their device every time you open the app? With no option for Face ID, or magic link. The app blows.
  • Auto-renewed and no refund

    By The Alankirk
    Utter trash. I had cancelled my subscription and it renewed months later. Before i realized it, I had already been charged. Apple said I couldn’t have a refund. Total nonsense.
  • New iPad Pro Not Supported

    By Inkpiker23
    Need support for new iPad Pro!!!!!!!!
  • Really bad app

    By ScottOreily
    So many issues. Some shows totally disappeared for me.
  • It never works right

    By NItroMX1969
    Good luck because it always pauses or locks up. All my other apps work great.
  • App needs update and new features to hold up against Netflix

    By joshmcx
    App is not optimized for iPad Pro 11”. The app does not fit the screen. Keyboard shortcuts on the smart case do not work. Worst of all, the app does not allow downloads for offline viewing. I primarily use Netflix while flying on planes, so the lack of this feature almost makes the app and service useless to me.
  • Terrible

    By elwuer0
    I just cancelled my subscription. Will possibly subscribe through Amazon Prime because at least their app is good. This is as much on Apple as it is on HBO. Why doesn’t the app utilize the whole screen on my iPad Pro? Apple, stop approving updates until they at least support your newest devices. The most expensive streaming network and an embarrassingly bad app.
  • Update for new iPad Pro

    By Jeff B
    App needs to be updated for 11 inch iPad Pro! STILL NOT UPDATED!
  • No 4K support

    By a guy who reviews stuff
    It’s 2019. 4K has been around for ages. 4K TVs are cheap now. Make all of your content available in 4K, both inside your app and in the iTunes and Amazon Store. Will give 5 stars when HBO gets with the times.
  • Not able to watch anything

    By Tiesha903
    It’s not letting me watch anything on the app every time I try to watch something it’s says finish signing up but I e already added my card and everything! I started this free trial on Wednesday!!!
  • A streaming service that cannot stream?!!

    By Kai123489
    Game of Thrones keep us coming back but why does it keep stopping?? Netflix n Hulu can handle the streaming fine
  • Trashhhhh

    By Tatiiii2
    You have to go on a computer to unsubscribe, otherwise it just takes you back to this raggedy app. This is the most annoying mess I have ever had to deal with in my life, I regret even signing up for the free trial. No way in hell I’m paying $14 a month for this trash. Y’all are not that special to be THIS inconvenient. Oh and I just read the reviews! I BETTER not be charged after I already canceled this subscription, and don’t even hit me with that “you must cancel via your provider you subscribed with” because first of all that doesn’t even make sense, second of all I already checked apple and hbo isn’t even in my list of subscriptions. And do you know what is absolutely insane? I thought I’d just delete the entire account just in case but it doesn’t look like you can do that at all, I’ve searched on the (help) sight, googled, and everything and all that comes up is how to “cancel the subscription”. You can’t even just remove your card information, unless you put in another card sooooo this is literally a huge scam... People who are still charged after cancellation and receive that message from hbo, They’re LYING. You’re better off just calling your bank and telling them not to pay thieves whatsoever. Then they send me an email talking about “dId yOu mEaN tHAt?” Because I turned off auto renew.... Man, if y’all don’t get tf out my face with that bull...
  • Works occasionally

    By Chaka The Khan
    For $14.99 a month this app should work and connect 100% of the time. I’d say 50% of the time I can use it. Cancelling.
  • No support for iPad 11” Screen Still???

    By 1jmriverap
    App is ok. Could be better if we could have an improve list that we can use for shows/movies we want and selected to see (Like in Netflix or Hulu) and support for the latest iOS devices.
  • HBO Left Behind

    By Futurephonic
    The Apple TV app doesn’t play the next episode or let you skip the end credits to play the next one. HBO is so narcissistic that they ignore good user experience.
  • 11” iPad Pro Support

    By sergiobadger
    iPad Pro released 4 months ago. I would think Developement would support this new form factor in this time frame.
  • Very frustrating

    By mizzzzzzllleee
    This app is not as good as it should be! If your use to Netflix or just about any other streaming app, you’ll find yourself frustrated having to open and close the app just to watch a show or movie. I find myself counting the seconds it takes to load while fast forwarding thru previews or recaps and trying to figure out wether it’s worth it to just sit and watch the same preview for the 20th time. It’s annoying that I tried rewinding 10 seconds and it took so long to load my phone locked due to non activity. All in all I appreciate HBO content but to pay the price this app costs and for something so simple as a 10 second rewind taking over half a minute to load and then open and close the app over 3 times, sort of makes u wonder what your paying for?
  • 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
  • No downloading option

    By jtaggart811
    For a pretty expensive subscription you would think you would get the basic options of a streaming service where you can download a movie or show to watch when you dont have wifi/cell service, but this app does not support that feature sadly.
  • HBO now

    By sonic2341
    The videos and tv shows jumping
  • Needs to be optimized for streamingv for iPad (tablets)

    By Viiv
    Unlike the nearly perfect to workable cellular streaming experience offered by most of this app's competitors, the HBO app regularly stalls out, buffering forever. It makes streaming over cellular impossible except in perfect conditions. This app often doesn't even stream well on WiFi.
  • HBO subscription

    By Omarwil20
    So I canceled my subscription because I signed up for a free trial to see how HBO works. After a couple of days I really didn’t like how everything was, so I cancelled my subscription and then days later HBO charged me $15. I canceled my free trial and now they are charging me. What the hell HBO! I want a refund HBO, I didn’t want to continue using this app.
  • Highly do NOT recommend

    By Michael930DT
    2/3/19- i had this service for 2 months now but i just canceled my HBOnow subscription thru the amazon Fire tv store. Reason: This Hbo app is awful. 1. I have Fios 4k speed and the video streaming still encounters lag sometimes! 2. You cant download content unto ur phone or ipad hbo apps to watch off wifi! Thats crazy! Every streaming service offers offline viewing but Hbo, which is more expensive then the other streaming services, offers NO offline viewing??? ARE YOU SERIOUS? 3. The app is not user friendly. You cant set up profiles for different house hold members. 4. All the other terrible reviews about this app on the app-store i agree with. Hbo should be ashamed of themselves and i hope amazon and Netflix put them out of their misery.
