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

Since July 7, 2016 a bar showing the elapsed time and remaining time appears across the bottom of the screen. A bar showing the movie title appears across the top. I cannot get rid of this bar making any video practically unwatchable. The so called Help Center has not been helpful.

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.

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.

HBO, if you're reading this, please know I am a huge fan of your original productions. I never missed a Sopranos episode, and your documentaries are absolutely incredible. I am such a fan of yours, but am very disheartened with the HBO GO app for the Kindle. I downloaded it originally the first time quite a few months ago as I was ECSTATIC that I could take your shows into bed with me, or even on my travels. Unfortunately, I had to uninstall your app because I simply could not get more than two minutes into any show I chose to watch without the app shutting down on me and kicking me out or freezing my Kindle. I waited a couple months more hoping this issue would be fixed and reinstalled it only to face the same issues. It even shuts down or freezes while just scrolling through the myriad of optional shows to choose from. I am sure I am not the only one with a Kindle facing these issues, so why not fix it after months of complaints? Or, maybe I am just one of the lucky (har har) people with a glitchy Kindle. If it weren't for the fact that the crashes this apps causes to my Kindle basically rendering it useless, HBO GO would get 5 stars, no question. The layout is user friendly and you can find a whole host of movies, original series, and awesome documentaries HBO is known for that aren't always on your t.v. If there was an HBO movie on your t.v. you missed, you will most likely be able to find it on this app. Too bad I can't.

The worst app ever. You literally couldn't make it worse if you tried. Constantly hangs and if you pause, adjust volume or touch the screen mid-play for any reason; it constantly flashes headers and footers, which might actually induce a seizure. Biggest POS ever from a company you've actually heard of and I am a fool actually paying for the HBO service in the first place to be tormented by this garbage.
