  • Parental controls are a pain

    4
    By ch<3sen
    The app is pretty easy to browse through and watch but it a huge pain to keep changing parental controls when ever my kids want to watch something and then switch back. It would be a lot easier to allow streaming of restricted content by entering a quick passcode only parents know instead of going to setting and changing everything. This method would also prevent any mistakes in which parents forget to switch restrictions back on after watching. Not well designed for people with kids.
  • Shows are good, app is not

    By [Anonymous] listener
    The app is just clunky and old feeling. You can finally save shows to your list but it’s not even the first thing you see when you open the app. I always need closed captioning but it doesn’t keep them on from episode to episode. Each episode, I have to open the app, let it buffer to show the connection with my TV and then turn on closed captioning again. Then because it only rewinds 10 seconds at a time, I have to keep rewinding, waiting for buffering, rewind again to get back to the beginning (when the closed captioning should have just been on). Not very assessable
  • Garbage

    I just reinstalled the app for Game if Thrones. We did this last season but kept it longer because we enjoyed the content. Had to cancel for a while and came back. The app on our Firestick is absolute garbage. I have three list options: Featured, My List and Continue Watching. I tried to click on “Browse” and it does nothing. I can search, but even under search is only Recommended Series and Recommended Movies. How am I supposed to know what content is actually provided by HBO if I have no way to browse the library?? If there is a way to browse content on my Firestick, I will change my rating. If not, I’ll be canceling this as soon as GoT is over and won’t come back.
  • Website doesn’t event function properly

    Can’t even log into my account because their website is freezing up when I log in and says that I have logged in too many times and locks me out for an hour. Have called customer service several times only for them to admit they don’t know what’s wrong with it. Have tried on mobile device and computers and through the phone with technical support. You’d think with the millions of dollars they are robbing from people they could afford a team of web designers that know what they’re doing. Whatever the issue is I just paid $15 for a streaming service I can’t watch.
  • Signing in

    By Keep it Real Reviews
    It's a minor but annoying problem on my iPhone xs. Considering that my home button activator is a slide up from the bottom of the screen, it makes it very difficult to tap the "sign in" button without hitting the iTunes subscription button or sliding up. Could you provide some space to click sign in if you're already a subscriber? It would make a hug difference for people who will experience the same problem. Thanks!
  • UX is horrific

    By Iffy about it
    I primary use HBO NOW on my Apple TV. I think whatever product manager or designer who came up with the new non-linear user experience should be fired. What a horrible update. Why do I feel this way? Rewatching shows is somewhat painful. The fact that I have to scroll through a grid of episodes rather than go through the list in order makes absolutely no sense. Maybe if I was watching episodes of The Office where I wanted to find a specific one randomly, this would work but when I’m watching chronological series like The Sopranos or GoT this makes me extremely frustrated. Stupid stupid stupid. Great shows. Please rollback the Apple TV app.
  • Poor interface

    By OingoBongo
    I liked HBO however their app has a lot of flaws. Parental controls are very awkward. You if you set limitations it takes affect for the account and there is no convenient way for the adults to watch shows at a higher rating without going into settings and changing the limitation for the entire account. Other app will let you just entere the PIN number to unlock a show to watch. Please enable this. The List feature is episode specific for tv shows so if you watch a show you can’t use the list to navigate to the next episode.
  • Volume slider bug

    4
    By AustinCMather
    Im on an iPhone 7 plus and whenever I use the popup shortcut that takes me to the next episode after finishing the one i just watched, i think it carries over the volume sliders UI from the episode i just watched and adds a new one for the new episode i began watching from the shortcut. I had up to 4 different volume sliders at once, but only one worked. Just thought id let you know to improve the quality of your app.
  • No Refund Policy & Boring

    1
    By hunterkassapides
    No matter what your circumstances are, HBO has a 100% no refund policy. I tried out HBO when I was rewarded 3 months free through Verizon up. At the exact same time when the 3 months ended, my HBO app went to black anytime I clicked it on my PS4. I assumed my 3 months free had ended but no! They charged me $15 for an entire month I didn’t even watch 1 second of HBO!! They don’t care what your reasons are, they’ll don’t give refunds. I’ll be reporting them to the better business bureau. . . The only interesting thing on HBO is GAME OF THRONES. I’d rather just buy the last season as it comes out instead of wasting my money on HBO’s boring other shows.
  • I travel quite often

    1
    By Donsolrac
    I am a US citizen, using US credit cards, and this app works OK when I’m in the United States, but when traveling it is useless as it will not work. So basically, I will be in Brazil for the Game of Thrones season premiere, and was hoping I could watch the opening episode connecting my phone to the television in the hotel. As I usually do with Netflix, when traveling. The whole point of a mobile app is that. After all, if I were at home where I have a regular HBO subscription, I would be watching it on my large screen TV. Basically if it only works well in the United States it is useless.

    It’s so difficult to sign in and forget trying to cancel your subscription! That is almost impossible to figure out! Once I figure it out I’m done!

  • What am I paying for ?

    By trruuueeitworks
    The shows keep freezing and glitching during every episode and time lapse is horrible . I can’t even enjoy a show without the glitch occurring . Sometimes it occurs more than 3 times in a role . Very disappointed
  • Need Profile Options

    2
    By JoeDmor
    If multiple people stream using the app, separate profiles should be an option so each person can stream their own shows. Being able to create personal profiles within the app would make app utilization more pleasant.
  • Not user friendly at all

    By upen.kadari
    Compared to Netflix and prime , this app is very average . Doesn’t show continue watching .. no personal recommendations .. bad search capability , I can’t search with director names etc .. subtitles option always resets..genres are not proper etc.. shows are good though
  • Shows are amazing

    Love the graphics and so much more. The legends and “magic,” behind all of GOT is reminiscent of Lord of the Rings.
  • Its alright

    Never had a problem with it, I just wish you can put a download feature, other streaming subscriptions offer download features to watch later and charge less too.
