I would normally give HBO Go five stars as their original content is some of the best and they update it weekly with new films and documentaries.  I have to knock off a star, though, because of the reliability of the service itself.  It's awful!  It constantly crashes and hangs.  None of our other streaming services experience this problem (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, FX Now, etc.), but HBO has had this issue on multiple platforms.  We finally just opted into Amazon's HBO stream and that fixed the problem for us.  Not sure why HBO Go has this issue, but I won't be going back to it until the developers fix it.

Everything on here is great!... except how much it costs. I would never buy HBO just to have monthly. That would literally break my budget. Has recent movies and shows, which have selections that you can’t go wrong on. I love HBO, just can’t afford it haha.

We have Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go. I have to say I use this the least although I was SO excited about it! It does have a nice selection of movies, new and old. Usually has movies that are newer than Netflix/Hulu. My biggest complaint is figuring out how to easily find what I was just watching. Either they dont offer it in a way that I see it or they don't save it somewhere at all...

Let me first just say, I'm so glad Amazon streams Game of Thrones now. I must just be missing the point of this app. In this day and age, most people have fortunately released themselves from the evil grips of cable and satellite companies for more practical streaming websites such as Netflix and Hulu. What I don't understand is you need a satellite service provider for this app? I understand they have recently came out with HBO Now, which is totally practical. But HBO Go just doesn't make sense to me. If you have satellite with HBO I don't understand why you would need HBO streaming services. I understand wanting to stream your shows on demand but again, if that's how you watch TV why have satellite? The only practical use of this app is for watching HBO outside of your home, but there just isn't a full selection of movies and shows for it to be useful in my opinion. It seems redundant and a lot of extra dollars for no reason. Just being real. I also used my in-laws version of this for new Game of Thrones until it kept signing us all out repeatedly. My father-in-law wasn't having that ish on the night of a new episode, so we promptly purchased Amazon's streaming services and have had no problems. Also the layout is just as terrible as the movie selection. 1/5.

3 words... GAME OF THRONES.

That's the ONLY reason I downloaded this app. AND Jason Mamoa hahaha. If it wasn't for Game Of Thrones and Jason Mamoa I would've never downloaded this app.

HBOgo is a great App. This is the way to watch your favorite shows on the go. I absolutely hate traveling somewhere and can't catch up on my shows. I can access it from anywhere on all of my devices. Go get the app!

HBO Go is a great way to watch their ground breaking tv shows on your mobile device when you find yourself with unexpected time to kill or cable outages. I recently used it to finish watching a mini series when my cable box wouldn't load the final part, instead I pulled up HBO GO and used Chrome Cast to send it to my television when it was nowhere to be found on Netflix.

My husband & I use HBO Go on Apple TV and it's 100% worth the $15 subscription fee! It's very easy to use, and has an amazing range of high quality shows. I think we use it as much as both Netflix and Hulu combined, and those have a shows from a wider range of providers.

Shows I recommend:  VeepGame of ThronesGirlsSilicon Valley ... and so many more!

HBO's selection has gotten limited over time, and seems to be focused on GOT and other shows that are doing really well with minimal movies. I'm mixed on if it's worth the extra charge each month because the same shows and movies are always playing (for the past 2 months now) without any new entertainment added. I can pay less for Netflix that has a variety to choose from without a large charge each month.
