Update is trash.

To be honest I’m not sure which action fixed my issue below after the update rendered my app unusable, but between deleting then reinstalling the app, then restarting the my phone after that didn’t quite work. The app started to work post update. But it did not work when just restarting the phone after the update so I can only think that the combination of both deletion/reinstallation, and the restart combined triggered operation 🤷🏾‍♂️. All is right with the world for now. Stars upgrade to 4... -1 because I like total solutions and an unknown variable doesn’t sit well with me. I prefer knowing exactly what the cause and action of correction really was...

I was forced to update as the app said update required and would not open. Updated in the App Store and now the app starts to open when selected then closes out immediately back to my phone’s home screen where I selected the app. I am mostly away from home so this is how I watch HBO while my family who lives at the house can enjoy the traditional way. But I got it for me mostly. I Might as well cancel the HBO altogether if I can’t watch it. I’m the one who watches it the most...

What happened? Problem now Fixed!

Updated again 5/5/19: my iPad did not recognize Charter/Spectrum as my provider. I signed out of Charter on my iPad then signed back in under Spectrum and now the HBO Go app works. That may help others who are having the same problem.

Updated 5/4/19: I tried the steps to get in to HBOGo from the link as the representative said below and still can not get in to the app. It still shows three blinking dots but nothing else, then times out after entering Spectrum as my provider in the log in screen. I also contacted HBO with my information as the representative asked. Still not a happy customer. If something works so I can get in, I will change my 1 star rating for the HBO app. I really do not want to leave such a horrible review and hope HBO does whatever is necessary to make me a happy customer once again.

HBO Go used to work on my iPad in the past but now it does not recognize Spectrum when I try to log in. I am paying for HBO but am not getting all of what I am paying for. What gives?

Worst streaming service app I have ever used (or tried to use)

I would say that this app works only about 1/2 the time. When I click on a show, it just can’t connect to it. The creek is black and nothing is happening. Sometimes I get error messages and sometimes it remains black. I have to try over and over again. Last night, I could not watch anything at all and I seem to be having the same problem today. It also buffers mid-show all the time. No other streaming service has that problem.

In terms of design, I don’t understand why they don’t put the shows I am in the middle of watching in the opening page. I guess I have to search for it? That’s just dumb. Look at any other streaming service. They out the shows and series you are working on in a very obvious place when you open the app. This app does not do that. It also doesn’t remember from device to device where you are so you can’t switch devices like you can with Netflix. Maybe this has something to do with connecting through my cable company account but it seems like they could do this better.
