Poor user experience

The content is great, but the experience to watch them is not, especially if you’re trying to binge. It doesn’t save your searches, no option to skip intros, and that annoying HBO Now 8 second logo clip they insist on playing is really annoying.

The worst though is the experience trying to cast to my Chromecast. I have to keep connecting and reconnecting to get sound, usually it takes me 2-3 attempts, and then I’m constantly having to search for the show again because it takes me back to the homepage or rewind with loads of buffering because it takes so long to get volume.

Loved the HBO Go app this is a bummer.

Terrible service

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.

Apple TV connection window keeps repeatedly opening during streaming

Used to love this app, but lately every time I attempt to watch a show from my phone, the “Start watching by connecting HBO Now” notification window pops up on the screen asking me to connect to Apple TV. I select “Don’t Allow” because 1) I don’t have Apple TV and 2) I need to watch from my phone. Then a confirmation window pops up, and I click “OK” to exit back to my show. Video resumes.

Between 5 seconds and 1 minute later, the SAME screens pop up and I have to go through the process again (...and again...and again...). As I write this review, I’m 18 minutes into my show and have had this happen at least 20 times.

Yes, I have restarted my phone (iPhone 7+ running iOS 12.4). I have also deleted and re-installed the HBO Now app and deleted the Apple TV app (which I have no use for). I don’t have notifications turned on for HBO Now or Apple TV. What gives? Fix your app.
