    Overall I like this app and would have given it many more stars, but tonight the app has decided it no longer wants to work for me. First it wouldn't load on my phone, so I tried to open it on my husband's phone and was prompted to sign in. Okay, no problem (I thought), but when I tried to sign in I was told my subscription has ended and to go to manage subscription in the app. Again, I do as prompted, however it says that my app is set to automatically renew on February 12th, so please explain to me what is going on. If I am going to spend $14.99/month on an app I would like it to always work. Full Review

    I've used this app for months with no problems at all. I had to update it tonight (or it wouldn't let me open the app) and now I'm getting a 'can't play this video right now' message every 10 minutes. I have to close the app and reopen to watch 10 more minutes. WTH! For $16 freaking dollars, this shouldn't happen. (Internet is fine, Netflix, Hulu and others working, no problem) Full Review

    Very few new releases- lots of spanish titles and older movies I've never heard of before, and I'm a big movie buff. You can create a watchlist, but there's no option to watch trailers, no reviews or even a star rating for titles. Starz is cheaper monthly, ($8.99) has a better selection, star ratings for titles and you can watch trailers of movies. You do get free one month trial, so check it out, but I cancelled my subscription within about 3 hours of installing the app and starting my trial. Full Review

    Constant playback issues. When trying to watch multiple episodes in a row, you have to completely back out of the app, reconnect to Chromecast, find your show, find the episode you need, then play. Every other streaming app has a "play next episode" feature and stays signed in and connected while you're watching. If it weren't for shows like game of thrones and westworld, I would delete this app and not recommend it anyone. Full Review

    It worked fine with my Chromecast for like 2 weeks... then it decided not to anymore. It works about 10% of the time now, and I have to keep exiting and restarting until it starts working. I've been trying to watch the last 2 episodes of the Leftovers for 3 days now. When I finally get some closure I'm deleting the app. It's not worth the frustration. If it always worked like it did initially, it would be 5 stars easily Full Review

    I've had hbo for awhile now on my phone and Xbox one. Worked fine until for some reason after paying my subscription, it just will not play any movies on my Xbox. The phone app works fine, but no matter what trouble shooting I do, reinstalling, signing out n authenticating, or even restarting my system works. I get a service code, but there is nowhere to input n find out what the hell the problem is. Full Review

    Ed Carden Published date: February 8, 2018

    I love the app. However, I'm having a Chromecast issue that's really annoying. The persistent notification that pops up while playing keeps getting frozen. The pause and X buttons stop responding to touch inputs and the notification itself refuses to dismiss. I have to force stop the app to make it go away. Please fix this, it's extremely annoying. I love HBO and this app, but this has been happening for about 4 or 5 months now and needs to be addressed. Full Review

    After several hours of trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, I gave up. I wanted to use the free 30 day subscription. I signed up. Then when I went to watch a show, it told me to create an acct. I already had one, so I hit that button and it still doesn't work. I feel like this was a scam just to get my credit card info.

    After the Xbox Live update today, I've spent an hour on the phone with tech support and still can't watch anything. It just keeps looping back to "don't miss out, watch one month free!" I've been paying for this service for months and now I can't use it at all. Garbage. So angry. Full Review

    With the new update the ability to clear my continue watching is gone. Disappointing. And it buffers much more frequently than before. After updating, I have to log in again. A slight annoyance. I DO like having some of my favorite shows and other movies available to watch, so all in all its a solid "OK". Full Review

    I love the content. HBO has great shows and great selection of movies. That being said, have you guys seen the Hulu plus app that's an app that is very well design, beautiful presentation and great features. HBO your app looks like a startup that just made their first app and the tv app on my Samsung smart TV is even worse you guys need to redesigned the whole thing from scratch. Also how come Netflix and amazon have 4K HDR content but u don't have any? Come on HBO u need to step up your game is embarrassing Full Review

    The fonts have gotten too small to read easily. I have to stand and get close in order to read the descriptions if movies and show. Remember not everyone has a 52" TV and many of your customer service are over 50 with diminishing faculties. Full Review

    The continue watching movie feature should be editable, I don't really need to be reminded that I haven't watched the 8 minutes of credits at the end of Lego Batman every time I open the app. I have tried to ffwd through, but I don't get credit, it's annoying. Full Review

    Haithem Obeidi Published date: February 22, 2018

    This app is pretty bad. You can only add to watch list each individual episode and you have to remove each individual episode. It's also constantly freezing and crashing and there's no continue watching section. Also accidentally click on other episodes when trying to click on the bottom bar while casting. Needs to be updated to be more user friendly. Full Review

    The streaming freezes way to much. It is very hard to stream a movie with no freezing. On Wi-Fi the problem happens half the time. I have an unlimited data plan and I keep calling sprint they tell me it is on the HBO app side. Full Review

    Al Darn Published date: February 21, 2018

    I already have an account and am a subscriber to HBO Now, but this app does not recognize any of that. And I'm trying to use it on a Pixelbook, but this app is not flexible in setting up the screen size it uses. It's either a small cell phone window or corner-to-corner full screen. This is an OLD app and not up to speed with current Android specifications. Come on, HBO. You can do better than this. I'm deleting it. Full Review

    Published date: December 10, 2017

    The app stalls and reloads no matter how fast your Internet connection is. Plus there is no way to perform basic functions like seeing details for something you want to watch or many other basic operations. Worst app for a big company I've seen. Plus it is overpriced at $15 per month. If you like 5 shows you can purchase them at $24 per season or $120 per year vs. The app at $15 per month or $180 per year. Full Review

    It may be worth it when GoT is on and it works properly. Other than that, waste of time. Constant buffering issues no matter what you use, despite the connection. Tried it on a 5 mbps connection and 120 mbps circuit, it's engineered to not work very well compared to it's competitors. Only get this for shows you may want to watch when they are on. Full Review

    I installed this app just about a week ago, and despite the occasional buffer, it was all good at first. Now it crashed and everytime I try to open, it always says "an error occurred" and that it will "restart". But it's the same problem over and over. Full Review

    Signed up for the 50% deal and they charged me full price. They didn't even tell me they were charging me full price or I wouldn't have signed up. At least tell someone what they're actually paying when they sign up. Full Review

    My husband got HBO now and put it on my card. We never use it so i keep trying to cancel it and it tells me that now things are billed through google play. However it doesnt show up in any of the devices that we own. I am beyond frustrated and mad that i have paid for this account. Had i known how awful this process was going to be i never wouldve gotten it. Full Review

Contacted them and basically, no refunds. I didn't even use it -___- Full Review

    I had to shut down the entire app and phone each time the streaming was interuppted. Play button to resume playing DOES NOT WORK. All it does is remind 10 seconds for you. Keeps freezing, even with 4G and full bars. Full Review

    Ed Jones Published date: February 7, 2018

    Out of all the streaming services, this is the most laggy. Videos take so long to load compared to others. If you make the mistake of forwarding a video for 10 seconds, be ready to wait for 30-50 seconds for the video to playback again. Constant playback errors. Being the relatively pricier on demand service, you would think this app is top notch compared to Netflix, Hulu etc. Full Review

    HBO Now is a pretty cool service with great content. This app however is poor. Unintuitive and inconsistent navigation. Glitchy playback. It has felt crude and unfinished for a year now with no real sign of inprovement. Full Review

    terminallyRandom Published date: February 4, 2018

    It's almost impossible to play/pause! The controls don't work. For some reason everything I hit the button it rewind 10 seconds, and in order to get it to fast forward, you actually have to hit the rewind button. It's like the buttons and what they do aren't lined up. Completely unsure, downloaded only to watch Game of Thrones, uninstalling Full Review

    Get your app together HBO, this app behaves extremely unstable, not only does it not recognize my subscriptions, but also does it constantly crash. Also, check your compatibility, this app is a mess on Chromebooks. Learn a little from Netflix. Full Review

    I pray for the ability to watch your content on my tablet. If every other update is going to make it unwatchable, I'm going to stop paying you. Simple enough? Stop doing things that make the video buffer constantly. Everyone else can do it, so why not you? Full Review

    Couldn't make the app work on phone or tablet. I had MULTIPLE sign in issues and then couldn't get it to talk to Google Play. Possible server issue but not my problem.

    It's the most expensive app I have and also the buggiest. I don't have any issues with other pay to stream apps. The only one that gives me trouble is PBS and that's free and still way less of a hassle than HBO. Once GoT is done, I'm probably canceling this expensive PITA. Full Review

    Em R Published date: December 27, 2017

    I tried the free month to see if I truly wanted to switch from Netflix to this one. I thought the extra money I would pay would be worth the extra shows. I was completely wrong. This app has yet to stream one entire show without buffering every 20 or so minuets, sometimes every couple minuets. I keep getting the message that something is wrong with my Chromecast but EVERYTHING else's on my phone streams with no problem at all. I have tried uninstalling the app to reinstall it, turning it off and on, ect., ect. Untill this streams better, I'm not going to pay for it. Full Review

    I really like the fact that I can watch Game of Thrones from the comfort of my own throne. I dislike the fact that you can't save watch videos wherever you are like Netflix. I'd really like to watch videos on the go without using my cell data. Also, the app can't connect to Chromecast on my phone anymore even though it's well above the minimum requirements. Netflix and YouTube still work. And no I don't want to Cast my phone directly to the Chromecast: it kills my battery and slows down my phone. Overall, it's an okay app. Full Review
