    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

    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

    Crashes constantly. Does not remember where you left off in a show. Does not track what you have or haven't watched. HBO has way too many resources to justify an app this sloppy. There have been a few minor improvents lately, but it is still the worst designed video streaming app I've ever used. The HBO content is the only reason to consider patlying $15/month for this piece of garbage. Maybe they just want people to pirate it instead? 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.

    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

    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

    Long load times, unwieldy app. Did like ALL the Latino content. Made me feel like I was in Mexico while living in the USA....Got it as a New Years promotion. You can beat I won't be buying it again! Full Review

    I have used HBO Now apps on android, fire stick, and my smart tv. No comparison to the interfaces of Netflix and any other streaming service that I have used. Not user friendly. I can't save my fav shows, just episodes of it and if I can, it's too difficult to figure out. I don't want to call and have someone sit me through it. I can generally figure it out on my own. The shows don't automatically take u to the next episode, only on some hbo apps. The app seems different on different devices, which is also annoying. I'm about to cancel tbh. They charge more and can't seem to get the basic stream service features down packed. Full Review

    Justin Perry Published date: December 11, 2017

    Love HBO Now! The quality of content is amazing, but I'm having an issue with Google Play now and can't get HBO Now in any form! For two straight months they have withdrawn from my bank account and HBO Now says my account ended a few months ago. Somehow Google Play isn't paying HBO with my $16 a month, don't want to have to cancel HBO, I'm hoping to resolve this soon, otherwise it's a 5 star rating! Although HBO is great with customer support normally, not being able to resolve their own payment issue is a little frustrating. Problem resolved quickly! 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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Brian Becklehimer Published date: December 6, 2017

    Signing in problems after update. App is clunky conpared to Netflix, Hulu and Prime. Only thing good about this app is few series I like, but not really justifiable by the price when you can find good shows on the other 3 i mentioned for 5 bucks less a month and a better functioning app. Full Review

    Tyler Burns Published date: December 20, 2017

    I like being able to watch Game of Thrones on my phone (the only reason I got and still have it). I hate having to kill and restart the app every 2-5 minutes because it freezes and pretends to load forever unless I do so.. Every 2-5 minutes, not even keeping track of where I left off! I can't wait to be able to watch HBO on another platform. Full Review

    Rich F Published date: January 13, 2018

    A masterpiece of junk. Hangs up before it ever gets started. I reinstalled and tried to get the one month free trial in an email offer. No such offering. Finally I was able to sign-up and access HBO and then the real problems started. What a horrible interface and connection problems galore, no doubt some of which are Google's doing. One thing is for sure, I'm not paying a penny to use this app until they get it straight. I don't know who HBO hired to write this application but they should fire someone and get their money back. The only way to describe the experience is painful. Absolute torture and I'll be ending my trial quickly. On to Hulu. Full Review

    Julia Colvin Published date: December 29, 2017

    This was already suggested, but its annoying that it's no binge-watching playback when casting to Chromecast from a mobile device - when watching a series, you have to re-search to move to the next episode. This should happen automatically and it effects your viewing pleasure. Works fine on Smart TV app. Full Review

    Couple issues. The sound doesn't get as loud as I would like it. My Nexus 6p gets pretty loud on it's own and works well with other streaming services but this app has a slightly low cut off on top noise level. Also has a problem streaming smoothly. It buffers frequently no matter how good my internet is. Full Review

    This might be the worst streaming app I have ever used. It is hard to navigate, has terrible controls and loses connection regularly. It is barely worth the hassle at $15 a month for HBO. Full Review

    Recent update removed the ability to see my entire watchlist, I'm only able to see the most recent 30. What problem did that solve. Also would like a "watch next episode" like Netflix and Amazon have when I'm binge watching a series. Full Review

    This is very good Rascon Published date: December 15, 2017

    Works well on my smart TV. Terrible on my phone. Plays 10 seconds at a time before buffering for 20 seconds. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon prime work great. If you are only planning to watch on your phone, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!! Full Review

    On both this app and fire tv, y'all give it a Much better look at the expense of buffering issues. More optimizations badly needed and don't change the look ever again unless u fixed these buffering bugs. Even with bugs I can still watch movies and tv ok however vice news tonight gave me the worse viewing experience and poor quality. I pause it for a split second and it'll stop buffering. Oh and when I tried viewing vice news tonight live it keeps force stopping Full Review

    Kyle Hilsabeck Published date: December 27, 2017

    Where to start - super glitchy app especially when casting to a Chromecast. I'm using a brand new S8+ And there's just tons of crsh-type problems that happen. Nevermind the user interface is lousy. Whoever developed this needs to check out Netflix for some ideas on how to make it better. I'd also really like it if you could hide titles you aren't interested in seeing. It takes forever to scroll through and find new movies - because of course the "new movies" category shows the same 10 titles for 6 months - which are the same titles in the "featured" category, and don't a dually include newly added content. I like the content, but the app is terrible. Full Review
