    Joe Ryan Published date: August 12, 2017

    Too many bugs for an app from someone as big as HBO. Don't even try to use it on Nvidia shield, half the time there's no sound and if it works it randomly starts buffering and dropping resolution and then the lips get all out of sync with the sound. As expensive as this service is it should work flawlessly. There's a reason Netflix is doing so good. Full Review

    Such a crappy app. Often freezes and will make awful squeel noises in the middle of viewing. If not for GOT I'd never use it. Full Review

    Clean app for the most part, but could use some refinement and additions which is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5. It could allow for more filtering options in roving for movies/series. Some of the lists are so long you can get lost in it and end up nowhere. Plus, just the fficiency of narrowing down searches would be nice. Also, the ability to create playlists (especially with series') would be nice. That way when something ends it can just roll right into the next show/movie on the list. Full Review

    Who Are They Published date: August 1, 2017

    I would not pay $15 a month for this. The selection is drastically smaller than Netflix. On mobile there is no HD and the sound is desynchronized on every single show and movie. If you have a TV with Chromecast both of those problems are solved, but this is a mobile app and the mobile functionality should be able to stand on it's own. Definitely would not recommend this product in it's current state. -Motorola G4 User Full Review

    1 free month, but no warning email that they're going to bill you on the second month. You should at least warn us a couple days before billing us when we're in the free month trial period. Of course now after being billed, it shows up everywhere that there are no refunds. Not cool. I understand that I agreed to the terms, but just a quick reminder/warning email would've been nice. I've gotten them from all other subscriptions before. Full Review

    Rocky start. Login would not work on all devices without a call to tech support. When I try to watch movies on my phone I get a "no Internet" error despite having wifi and data. I would like to see better interface between my phone and my PS4, currently there is none. Navigation through available titles is clunky. Hbo content is above average. The woman at tech support was as helpful as she could be, as well as being very polite. Full Review

    Bad Streaming Quality. I tried to watch the GOT Season 7 premier yesterday. It was streaming at less than 720p. The service doesn't even let you change the quality. It says it will choose it for you based on your internet. Well it did not. I have Hulu and Netflix and am able to stream to multiple devices at 1080p at the same time. I have the highest internet service Xfinity offers. So no... It is not my internet. Had to watch the premier in horrible quality. No other devices were streaming or connected to my network. What a disappointment. I will not be keeping this service past my free trial. Full Review

Please fix this or I will cancel my subscription......and I probably will because you won't even reply to this review....just like the last review I put on here like 4 months ago about the same problem.

    All it does is buffer and buffer and almost never load. Plays for five minutes then buffers again. And I have unlimited data. Boyfriend pays monthly for something we cant use just in hopes we can one day watch a full hbo now episode of Game of thrones without the sad buffering. Full Review

    David Milton Published date: July 13, 2017

    It's not terrible. But it seems like if I'm paying for an app, I should have more choices of prgrams and movies. I'm just a week or more, I've already watched everything that interests me on the app. Boo. The last bit was first review. Now this is a new entry. I wac watching "The DEFIANT Ones", and about two minutes into streaming, it froze, made a super high pitched garbled squelch, and blew out my Bluetooth speaker. Don't bother downloading this unfinished pile of poop. Full Review

    Does anyone else have this problem when you try to cast on Chromecast and the sound doesn't work? Sometimes it will work fine, but more often than not it doesn't. I've tried signing in and out, closing the app and restarting it. The volume is all the way up on the device and plays fine on the phone or tablet, but the second I try to cast it the volume dosappears. :c Full Review

    Paid 15 bucks and can't play a dang thing. "An error has occurred" every single time, and after that so many times I get the too many devices issue and I'm only using my phone. I will be demanding a refund if this issue is not fixed in a couple days. Flat out ridiculous. Full Review

    Glad I got a free trial so I could see just how shoddy this service is. Streaming shows on the Playstation 4 with high speed cable Internet and it's still always buffering or giving playback errors. Don't have this issue with netflix. Junk. Not worth the money. Full Review

    Steven Freitag Published date: August 14, 2017

    It's pretty bad. It'll freeze but keep counting down like it's playing. Never rebuffs. Have to close the app and open it again, but it happens so much it's not worth the time you waste. Not worth 14.99 at all. It's even worse on the Xbox random popups of video playback issues and HBO unavailable. What a scam. Full Review

    Mohsen Sadatiyan Published date: July 15, 2017

    Awful app in comparison with Netflix. Its resume option is useless. if you stop an episode at 80% and start another episode the new episodes start at 80%. It has lots of bugs and just promote new shows instead of making the show that you watch easy to access. Full Review

    Houston G Published date: July 22, 2017

    The app works as it should EXCEPT you can not watch on slow wi-fi. The show stops (presumably to buffer) then starts skipping seconds to minutes ahead while making this horrible squeaking noise. Pausing and resuming does not fix the issue and it seems to just be luck that determines if the show will wver resume playing normally. Full Review

    Published date: July 18, 2017

    This is one of the worst apps I have ever used. Everytime I try to stream a show it doesn't work and gives me an error message or says there are to many devices ... and for $15 a month, why can't I stream on multiple devices?? Trust me that I won't be paying after my free month runs out. Full Review

    Amberlee Mills Published date: August 3, 2017

    HBO tries to defer the constant playback issue to "your internet provider". Netflix rarely has playback issues and it is less expensive. Xbox One app is unstable and frequently crashes. I love me some John Oliver, but you guys are going to have to do better than this. Full Review

    I just downloaded the app so I can watch new GoT but it keeps telling me that I have exceeded the number of devices allowed to use the account and that I need to close one device in order to watch. The only device that has access to my account is my tablet. this is impossible and cannot seem to fix itself. I guess I will have to cancel my subscription as I cannot even watch anything.

    So much for "Now"... I haven't been able to play any series on my phone. You would think as a billion dollar company HBO could figure out streaming. Please don't bother replying with your canned response to a set of instructions you know won't help me fix my experience, and fix your app. Full Review

    Do not waste your time buying this app. Bought it only to watch game of thrones and I can't watch it on any other device besides my phone. Customer service is mediocre and if you run into issues good luck Full Review

    Couldn't even try out the free trial without putting in a credit card. Basically that just says if you don't even like the app they will have your info and take your money anyway. Have had this happen too many times. Just a big NOPE. Full Review

    Have had it about 10 minutes and it froze twice. I have other movie and series apps and they work fine. I checked the other reviews and others were having the same issue. Tried to fix it according to the answer given to someone else but that was useless. Full Review

    Carter Espelien Published date: July 18, 2017

    I hate it. I set up an account and immediately after I signed in it wouldn't let me watch anything. It kept saying I was streaming to much but I had only set the account up 10 minutes prior. It says a ways of my time and a waste because now I'll be losing out on the free 1 month. Full Review

    Amanda Hollister Published date: July 23, 2017

    Extreme streaming issues. Every 30 seconds to a minute it freezes and glitches and the app has to be restarted. Complete waste of money because it takes days finish a single show. I used to love this app and the shows are great... but they can't be watched! I pay $15 per month to fight to watch a show! It is not my device as this happens on all of my devices. Apple and Microsoft products alike. Full Review

    Jacob McElhaney Published date: July 18, 2017

    Between the screen freezes and constant loading I can't watch anything. The best part is when I load a show, it loads, video and audio freeze, but the time counter keeps running. Watched a frozen screen for 45 seconds of a movie before I gave up. Seriously watched the time counter run off 45 seconds while looking at no audio/video. You guys have until the first month comes out. I will be demanding a refund. Full Review

    Aaron McRae Published date: July 31, 2017

    Search function sucks (typing "West" should bring up "Westworld." It often doesn't), title overlay on-screen occasionally won't go away, app frequently crashes, more difficult to find shows or movies than any other app. Thankfully the quality of content makes the app worth it, but HBO needs to do better.

    Adam Cooperman Published date: July 17, 2017

    "Unknown error, please try again" is not a good example of the content I pay for but that's all the content I'm able to access at the moment. Very frustrating. The app is frustrating at the best of times but being completely unable to function is a new low. I pay for the content HBO has. If I were paying for the app, I'd ask for a refund. Full Review
