    Very few new releases- lots of spanish titles and older movies I've never heard of before, and I'm a big movie buff. You can create a watchlist, but there's no option to watch trailers, no reviews or even a star rating for titles. Starz is cheaper monthly, ($8.99) has a better selection, star ratings for titles and you can watch trailers of movies. You do get free one month trial, so check it out, but I cancelled my subscription within about 3 hours of installing the app and starting my trial. Full Review

    Constant playback issues. When trying to watch multiple episodes in a row, you have to completely back out of the app, reconnect to Chromecast, find your show, find the episode you need, then play. Every other streaming app has a "play next episode" feature and stays signed in and connected while you're watching. If it weren't for shows like game of thrones and westworld, I would delete this app and not recommend it anyone. Full Review

    Overall I like this app and would have given it many more stars, but tonight the app has decided it no longer wants to work for me. First it wouldn't load on my phone, so I tried to open it on my husband's phone and was prompted to sign in. Okay, no problem (I thought), but when I tried to sign in I was told my subscription has ended and to go to manage subscription in the app. Again, I do as prompted, however it says that my app is set to automatically renew on February 12th, so please explain to me what is going on. If I am going to spend $14.99/month on an app I would like it to always work. Full Review

    I've used this app for months with no problems at all. I had to update it tonight (or it wouldn't let me open the app) and now I'm getting a 'can't play this video right now' message every 10 minutes. I have to close the app and reopen to watch 10 more minutes. WTH! For $16 freaking dollars, this shouldn't happen. (Internet is fine, Netflix, Hulu and others working, no problem) Full Review

    With the new update the ability to clear my continue watching is gone. Disappointing. And it buffers much more frequently than before. After updating, I have to log in again. A slight annoyance. I DO like having some of my favorite shows and other movies available to watch, so all in all its a solid "OK". Full Review

    After several hours of trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, I gave up. I wanted to use the free 30 day subscription. I signed up. Then when I went to watch a show, it told me to create an acct. I already had one, so I hit that button and it still doesn't work. I feel like this was a scam just to get my credit card info.

    The app stalls and reloads no matter how fast your Internet connection is. Plus there is no way to perform basic functions like seeing details for something you want to watch or many other basic operations. Worst app for a big company I've seen. Plus it is overpriced at $15 per month. If you like 5 shows you can purchase them at $24 per season or $120 per year vs. The app at $15 per month or $180 per year. Full Review

    Long load times, unwieldy app. Did like ALL the Latino content. Made me feel like I was in Mexico while living in the USA....Got it as a New Years promotion. You can beat I won't be buying it again! Full Review

    I installed this app just about a week ago, and despite the occasional buffer, it was all good at first. Now it crashed and everytime I try to open, it always says "an error occurred" and that it will "restart". But it's the same problem over and over. Full Review

    Signed up for the 50% deal and they charged me full price. They didn't even tell me they were charging me full price or I wouldn't have signed up. At least tell someone what they're actually paying when they sign up. Full Review

    The continue watching movie feature should be editable, I don't really need to be reminded that I haven't watched the 8 minutes of credits at the end of Lego Batman every time I open the app. I have tried to ffwd through, but I don't get credit, it's annoying. Full Review

    My husband got HBO now and put it on my card. We never use it so i keep trying to cancel it and it tells me that now things are billed through google play. However it doesnt show up in any of the devices that we own. I am beyond frustrated and mad that i have paid for this account. Had i known how awful this process was going to be i never wouldve gotten it. Full Review

    Gave it a shot with the free trial, but also have Amazon and Netflix aside from cable..so I didn't really use it..and the day before the month cycle I tried to cancel it only to find out that it was on auto payment; cannot be cancelled until next month. Contacted them and basically, no refunds. I didn't even use it -___- Full Review

    Ed Jones Published date: February 7, 2018

    Out of all the streaming services, this is the most laggy. Videos take so long to load compared to others. If you make the mistake of forwarding a video for 10 seconds, be ready to wait for 30-50 seconds for the video to playback again. Constant playback errors. Being the relatively pricier on demand service, you would think this app is top notch compared to Netflix, Hulu etc. Full Review

    Sergio Garcia Published date: December 26, 2017

    HBO Now is a pretty cool service with great content. This app however is poor. Unintuitive and inconsistent navigation. Glitchy playback. It has felt crude and unfinished for a year now with no real sign of inprovement. Full Review

    Ed Carden Published date: February 8, 2018

    I love the app. However, I'm having a Chromecast issue that's really annoying. The persistent notification that pops up while playing keeps getting frozen. The pause and X buttons stop responding to touch inputs and the notification itself refuses to dismiss. I have to force stop the app to make it go away. Please fix this, it's extremely annoying. I love HBO and this app, but this has been happening for about 4 or 5 months now and needs to be addressed. Full Review

    Doesn't stream very good, constantly skipping and going back about 3 seconds, takes allot of time midway through the movie loading... Very irritating. I don't have this issue with youtube or netflix. Its only this app. Full Review

    Why does it always freeze up... i always try to watch a show and it keeps loading!!! Sometimes I feel like canceling my subscription if it keeps doing it while I'm watching my shows... you pay to have it and doesn't even stream good!!!🤔🤔😤😤 Full Review

    It's almost impossible to play/pause! The controls don't work. For some reason everything I hit the button it rewind 10 seconds, and in order to get it to fast forward, you actually have to hit the rewind button. It's like the buttons and what they do aren't lined up. Completely unsure, downloaded only to watch Game of Thrones, uninstalling Full Review

    I love the content. HBO has great shows and great selection of movies. That being said, have you guys seen the Hulu plus app that's an app that is very well design, beautiful presentation and great features. HBO your app looks like a startup that just made their first app and the tv app on my Samsung smart TV is even worse you guys need to redesigned the whole thing from scratch. Also how come Netflix and amazon have 4K HDR content but u don't have any? Come on HBO u need to step up your game is embarrassing Full Review

    Get your app together HBO, this app behaves extremely unstable, not only does it not recognize my subscriptions, but also does it constantly crash. Also, check your compatibility, this app is a mess on Chromebooks. Learn a little from Netflix. Full Review

    Charles Eye Published date: December 8, 2017

    I pray for the ability to watch your content on my tablet. If every other update is going to make it unwatchable, I'm going to stop paying you. Simple enough? Stop doing things that make the video buffer constantly. Everyone else can do it, so why not you? Full Review

    Couldn't make the app work on phone or tablet. I had MULTIPLE sign in issues and then couldn't get it to talk to Google Play. Possible server issue but not my problem. I wasted an hour and a half trying to get this to work. I SINCERELY hope that this cancellation stops payment. I HAVENT WATCHED ANYTHING ON THIS..... Full Review

    Eric Cooley Published date: December 7, 2017

    It's the most expensive app I have and also the buggiest. I don't have any issues with other pay to stream apps. The only one that gives me trouble is PBS and that's free and still way less of a hassle than HBO. Once GoT is done, I'm probably canceling this expensive PITA. Full Review

    Em R Published date: December 27, 2017

    I tried the free month to see if I truly wanted to switch from Netflix to this one. I thought the extra money I would pay would be worth the extra shows. I was completely wrong. This app has yet to stream one entire show without buffering every 20 or so minuets, sometimes every couple minuets. I keep getting the message that something is wrong with my Chromecast but EVERYTHING else's on my phone streams with no problem at all. I have tried uninstalling the app to reinstall it, turning it off and on, ect., ect. Untill this streams better, I'm not going to pay for it. Full Review

    Philip McArthur Published date: February 12, 2018

    It's called HBO Now, but I have to wait a day or two for Real Time and Last Week Tonight to be available.... That's my only qualm. By that time I've already seen them on YouTube. I'm figuring Game of Thrones will be the same way when it airs... 😑 Make your series available as soon as they air please. Full Review

    Stephen Kuehl Published date: December 19, 2017

    Crashes constantly. Does not remember where you left off in a show. Does not track what you have or haven't watched. HBO has way too many resources to justify an app this sloppy. There have been a few minor improvents lately, but it is still the worst designed video streaming app I've ever used. The HBO content is the only reason to consider patlying $15/month for this piece of garbage. Maybe they just want people to pirate it instead? Full Review

    Brad Wilber Published date: January 28, 2018

    The app works flawlessly. Signing up was super easy. In fact, I was able to sign up with my phone. I gave it 2 starts when I decided to cancel my subscription. You want to cancel on the same phone/ipad? Forget it. Impossible. You have to either call in or login on a computer. It seems very deceptive and it was very frustrating. Why am I able to give them credit card info from my phone but I'm not able to cancel with same device? Edit: After I cancelled, I received an email asking if I "meant" to cancel. And if I wanted to re-subscribe, I just had to click a button. From my email. Unbelievable. Full Review

    Recent update removed the ability to see my entire watchlist, I'm only able to see the most recent 30. What problem did that solve. Also would like a "watch next episode" like Netflix and Amazon have when I'm binge watching a series. Full Review

    Julia Colvin Published date: December 29, 2017

    This was already suggested, but its annoying that it's no binge-watching playback when casting to Chromecast from a mobile device - when watching a series, you have to re-search to move to the next episode. This should happen automatically and it effects your viewing pleasure. Works fine on Smart TV app. Full Review

    Sky Kelsey Published date: February 5, 2018

    To get to 5 stars: 1. Remember the shows I watch and show a list of them when I open the app. 2. Provide reputable ratings next to all the terrible movies in your library. 3. Fix the connection to Chromecast, which comes untethered from the app so that the persistent notification doesn't work. Full Review

    Justin Perry Published date: December 11, 2017

    Love HBO Now! The quality of content is amazing, but I'm having an issue with Google Play now and can't get HBO Now in any form! For two straight months they have withdrawn from my bank account and HBO Now says my account ended a few months ago. Somehow Google Play isn't paying HBO with my $16 a month, don't want to have to cancel HBO, I'm hoping to resolve this soon, otherwise it's a 5 star rating! Although HBO is great with customer support normally, not being able to resolve their own payment issue is a little frustrating. Problem resolved quickly! Full Review
