  • Pretty bad development

    By The Faj
    The iOS apps and Apple TV apps are not good. TV programming is top notch, but they really hired bad designers & developers. The sync to Apple’s TV app doesn’t work well either. Also, where’s the 4K streaming???
  • Poor user interface

    By Nicsmom03
    1. Parental controls are on/off with no override for single watching. 2. Can't add a series or season to watchlist
  • Can't turn off auto play for series

    By Teriberi999
    If you are not going to allow the user to control auto play, then it shouldn't be a feature.
  • Hard to reach customer service

    By Dark3vil1
    I got this on my Samsung TV and it’s been a hell to get them to cancel my free trial. I’ve sent them at least two emails already and it’s like they don’t even care. Such a bad customer service from them.
  • Surprised it's so bad

    By MisterToad
    I expected a lot more from HBO. App is glitchy, often quitting when moving around the UI. Buffering often, when all my other apps like Hulu, Netflix work smoothly, and I have a very fast connection. Also, why are shows delayed? Real Time, John Oliver etc are delayed hours. Why? Just today, Saturday 8/19 Real Time episode from last night still isn't available, and what shows in the app is an incomplete version starting halfway through. And why, oh why, is something as simple as a ‘season pass’ not enabled? It’s 2017; most other streaming apps let you set a favorite series and tracks your episodes watched, even partial episodes. The developers need to look at Hulu or Netflix as examples of how to write a proper streaming app. Very poor, and damaging to HBO's reputation.
  • Awful...

    By Jen @ah0ybutternuts
    I never write reviews. But my God this app is awful. I love HBO which is why I will continue to use it to stream on my chrome cast but it is such a frustrating app. Not user friendly at all. My biggest issue is that I takes forever to load and it doesn't automatically play next episodes. I was reading other reviews an they basically touch on everything I feel. This app needs a good and necessary update soon!
  • Weak sauce

    By Sam the nerd
    I tried getting it to play video 5-7 times and not one time was it working, it's a very unreliable and way over priced app
  • Terrible streaming quality

    By Inraptureusee
    Not even through my free trial and I cant get through one session without it crashing. Happens on all of my devices.
  • POS - canceling subscription.

    By Ranger Ken
    Had MAJOR playability issues in August on both web interface on my Mac and my iPad. The "official" troubleshooting page said to delete and reinstall the iPad app. Deleting went just fine. Have been unable to re-download the app for a month - the progress circle s l o w l yyyy fills, then nothing for a few minutes, then I get an error message (twice!) that the app "can't be downloaded right now – try again later." Meanwhile, the web interface on my Mac has become unwatchable due to constantly buffering and regular "plug-in crash" problems. Have tried all four different browsers on my machine – no improvement. Consensus seems to be that it's a problem with using the [outdated] Flash technology. Most galling, the helpline lead you through a multi step menu and then loops back to directions to go to the [useless, uninformative, incomplete] online troubleshooting help. Don't. Waste. Your. Money
  • Awful expensive and not updated

    By Ronnica44
    As expensive as this app is, it should perform extremely well but the movies, shows constantly pause and stall. It is not worth the money at all for the monthly price charged.
