  • Useless App

    By HBO unsatsified customer
    Every single time I try to watch an episode, it takes forever to load. When it finally loads after restarting my device, removing and installing the app, and trying numerous other things, I can watch one episode. Once I click on the next the episode, it does NOT load and I’m back at square one. Takes too much time trying to watch an episode than actually watching one. I am so disappointed that this app is substandard to Netflix and Hulu. Seriously reconsidering subscription if this is not fixed asap! I rate it a 1 star because I can login seamlessly, that’s about it.
  • App won’t work

    By Person186539936649
    Ever since the update a couple months ago my app won’t even open. Still sends me notifications so that red number in the corner is really annoying.
  • How many? HBO

    By chinonation
    On how many devices can I use HBO? Or can I only use it on my mobile?
  • HBO review

    By The yellow cup
    I only have this app to watch a show on here and after I finish the show I’m deleting it and my subscription. The app is slow annoyingly hard to use and overall really aggravating. It takes forever to load my show and while I’m watching the “unable to play this” whatever sign always comes up. At first I thought it was my WiFi or internet by my Hulu Netflix and YouTube all play perfectly fine.
  • Please fix the ASPECT RATIO ISSUE

    By CMCMarley
    Shows and films (mostly films) on the app that are presented in an aspect ratio wider than 16:9 (which look wonderful on the iPhone X and above) still have black bars on the top and bottom, why? I can zoom in but then it’ll crop more than just the black bars. Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, along with several other streaming platforms are optimized for taller displays and will usually fill up most (if not all) of the display so why can’t HBO NOW? I hope that with HBO MAX this issue is addressed if it isn’t going to be fixed now with an update. I also hope that the black bars aren’t already burned into the content (which would make sense as to why I still see them). My only other issues are that the UI is a little clunky, there isn’t a skip intro button, and you can’t create user profiles (which I assume HBO MAX is the answer to).
  • What year is it? Come on HBO...

    By Whoopmeister
    For a company that has the brass tacks to flip Dish the finger and win, a company that has the money to turn out emmy award winning programs year after year, there is no excuse for such an abysmally poor app after nearly ten years of mobile computing. The app randomly crashes, freezes and misbehaves the same as it did 5 years ago and all we hear from HBO developers is lip service saying “we strive to make you experience blah blah blah”. Shut up with the feigned interest in our experience already. If you cared you would fix the app. Since you haven’t it is obvious you don’t. Either hold you developers feet to the fire or just fire them and outsource to a company that CAN write an app. Pathetic and inexcusable. Developer response: Thank you for taking the time to review our horrible excuse for an app. An app that hasn’t seen any real improvements since we launched it year and years ago. I for one am just paid to put a response here without reading what you said in order to cast the illusion we as a company care about you instead of your money. We will get this right over to somebody who cares just as soon as we can figure out who actually does. Be sure to give us a 5 star rating and tell your friends!
  • Expensive Trash

    By missvhe
    Sadly it is easier and cheaper for me to wait on content and buy episodes or seasons via iTunes than to subscribe to a service that seldom works or malfunctions mid viewing on EVERY platform. Even switching to the browser and no matter what internet service provider or method of access I use it seldom works through an episode or the first five minutes of a movie. The price for access doesn’t account for these disruptions of service. The error codes are a bazillion characters long and not worth investigating as a subscription doesn’t really allow for accommodation. However, if I had an episode that had issues which has probably happened less than three times in this digital age Apple can and will provide a refund or credit. This is just terrible. If you do not have cable or a provider ie satellite or Sky for those overseas - this is worthless no matter the device or point of access.
  • Terrible app.

    By RM-20
    This app is useless. Takes forever to stream a 30 minute episode, since it keeps freezing. What was HBO thinking?
  • 180 al año es demasiado

    By huixilopoxtli
    No vale pana gastar tanto en algo que solo miraras solo por las tardes 14.99 o 170.88 al año es pérdida de dinero no me gusto chao.
  • Way Too Expensive

    By Jmsan5
    If this service a was $9.99 a month, I would keep it. But at $14.99 per month, I find it hard to justify the price when other streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ are far less expensive and offer more content. Canceling and deleting this app. 👎
