It would be awesome if this were available to non cable subscribers. I believe there is a market for people that just want cable or satellite like services for tablets, phones and computers without the need for a home cable box with subscription. I would be willing to pay like 5 to 10 bucks a month directly to hbo just for access to the content in the hbo go library

4.0 out of 5 stars HBO GO January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
The HBO GO (Kindle Tablet Edition) is a good app, and does what it is supposed to, however, be advised that you can not connect your Kindle HD Tablet to your television, as HBO blocks this function. You will be limited to watching only on your tablet (therefore the 4 star rating). Update of my previous review (31 July 2013); I now give it 5 stars as the streaming issue has been resolved. I highly recommend this app. This is an update to my previous update(04/08/2014; HBO still blocks streaming to television via my Kindle Fire HD tablet, yet claims to be resolving the issue. I therefore change my rating back to the original 4 star rating. As for the new Amazon Fire TV, I do not have it nor do I intend to purchase it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why only Portrait? July 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I must say that watching HBOGO on an actual Kindle App, instead of a side-loaded Android app, is much more convenient. No more turning off the wifi, launching the app, then turning on the wifi and hitting "try again" to bypass that pesky error that pops up on the side-loaded version. I can also adjust the volume without the software stopping playback and forcing me to restart the video from the beginning. The image is much clearer, and now that they've resolved that pesky Time Warner issue, things are looking up.

But here's my problem. Every video shows in portrait. That means every movie, documentary, whatever that I watch shows up in a 4.7" x 3" box across the center of the screen. Or, if you remove it from "full screen" mode, it shows it at the top, with all the information about the video on the bottom. And, no, tilting the device does not change the orientation.

In the side-loaded version, it shows the video in landscape and it takes up the whole screen. I'm not sure why the video orientation is different on the kindle app, but it seems like a complete waste to show the content in such a tiny area when you have a whole 7-inch screen at your disposal.

I mean, if I only want to watch a 4-inch image, I can watch it on my phone.

****Edited to Add***
After looking at the sample photos, I realized that the image is SUPPOSED to show up landscape, so I investigated further. It turns out that the screen rotation on my Kindle Fire was somehow locked. I have no idea how that occurred since I didn't lock it. But, there you go. I unlocked it and now the image toggles to landscape when I tilt.

Since I can now view in landscape, I'm upgrading my rating to five, because it now works exactly the way I need it too. However, you might want to periodically check your screen and make sure it's not locked.

Worth the wait! Great picture quality and it runs just fine on the Kindle Fire. Does go through the battery pretty quick but that's what the charger is for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Battery hog but access to all HBO shows June 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
So far I've only tested the Kindle Fire app sparingly but I like the look. The app isn't as nice as for iPad but chalk that up to Android.

Playback is fairly decent but some WiFi lag is noticeable especially if trying to go back or advance a show. The app will also drain the battery fairly quickly depending on length of video. If you go back to your Home screen make sure to kill the app with something like Task Killer in order to prevent battery drain when not using the app.

I'll use the app more over the next couple of weeks to see how it fairs longer term.

3.0 out of 5 stars App is great as long as you are lucky enough to not have Comcast.
HBO GO is a nicely laid out app with access to some great content.

That being said it is horribly stained by the filthy greed monger known as COMCAST. Read more

HBO Go Issue With Chromecast
I don't believe the Kindle version of the HBO GO app has been updated with Chromecast support. I'd also like to know when this might become available.

hbogo for Amazon TV?
What is Amazons answer to this question...I am ready to buy Roku because Fire TV does not support HBO would think if it close they would say so just to sell more Fire TV units.
