App quality doesn’t match content quality
This app is just not great. There are a few basic features that would make it so much better. For instance if I finish an episode in a series and want to continue watching that series later, even if I add it to my list it’s nowhere to be found in the homepage. I have to search for it and select the show from search results. Would it be a huge leap to add a “recently watched” or “continue watching” banner? Even just ending an episode and attempting to start the next usually overwhelms the app and kicks me out. And that’s the real issue common to whatever platform we use with the hbo now interface, it’s just glitchy as heck. You never know when you’ll get the blue elipse of death that maybe will end in finishing an episode, maybe not. And there’s no way that I can see to download an episode which seems to me like an achievable kind of magic based on the ability to do so with other streaming apps.
To recap, content great, app not so much.

We appreciate your feedback about making your watched series easier to access and your comments about adding offline viewing and will share them with our team for review. Please feel free to reach out to us here: itsh.bo/NOW-request, should any other suggestions come to mind or for any support needed in using HBO NOW. Thanks. ^HBO NOW Customer Support.
The app is terribly designed only allowing a 10 second skip in any direction. Each video is proceeded by a 10 second preload screen to show you the rating followed by an ad. I try to skip ahead with the slider but it is so terrible it will just choose a random time and bit the time selected. The load times are terrible. I can load Netflix on the same device and it will start before the hbo app.
It linked to my iTunes account and I though great I can watch it on that app. No, it just wants to connect to it for information. You cannot watch any hbo videos except in the hbo app. I would love to discinnect it but U will have go online to fund out how.
Now lets talk about continue watching and adding a shiw to your watch list. Well it does not work. Sure you can add Fame if Thrones to your watch list, and it will always go to whatever episode you were watching and not the series. So yoy have to search your show, find the correct season, and then find the correct episode. Continue watching? It only saves the episode you were watching that did not play to the expected end time. I do not have the next episode waiting for mr buy a list of all the shoes I stopped watching before the credits.
In short, it is overpriced, full of ads, low on content, hard to navigate and not designed to help with viewing pleasure.

What year is it? Come on HBO...
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!
