HBO NOW Reviews


Pathetic app !!!! A kid could code a better app then this  Varunverma13  1 star

This app is so irritating , you pay to have seamless video and audio but this one here is worst then any app around , if it wasn’t for game of thrones I wouldn’t use it for free , video hangs on 100 mbps , they have irritating ads to follow ...its watching tv in 90s compared to Netflix , I would have rated this -000000 if I had that option


Impossible to read titles on Apple TV  skiaddict  2 star

The white text superimposed over content photos on the Apple TV is nearly impossible to read and makes choosing content VERY PAINFUL! Seriously needs some aesthetic improvement!.

Terrible App, Great Content  Createnick name  2 star

Obviously HBO puts out great content, but ended my subscription because of how non-user friendly the app is. Search bar is awful, chrome casting is a nightmare, and organization of content is atrocious.


Improve  Batmanrock  1 star

Please improve this app!!! Take inspiration from Netflix.


Buyer beware. Impossible to cancel subscription  Claude99999  1 star

I have been trying for over an hour to cancel this subscription. Shady shady


Don’t buy if you’re using fire stick  Dave619999  1 star

If you’re using this for amazon fire stick you need to sign up using that. Paying through apple will get you in an endless login loop with no Single sign on. Some dumb people over there.


Attempting to Chrome cast immediately crashes the app  Brakx  1 star

If I attempt to use my Bravias built in chrome cast, the app immediately crashes. It’s completely unusable and I’m unable to use my subscription. If I attempt to use an external chrome cast It says there was an error decrypting the video. Other apps don’t have this problem. Why is this app so unstable after years of development?


Weakest of the major streaming apps  skeeJay  2 star

The most backwards app of all the major streaming services. The gray letterboxing makes for a poor cinematic experience on iPhone. Tiny scrubber bar makes scrubbing hard. And no HBO app on any platform supports 4K or HDR. HBO’s tech lets its content down massively.


Don’t do the 1month free trial  Sparty1435  1 star

Dumb app charges you right away there’s no such things a 1month free trial when it charges you $15.93 the next day. Also super slow movies outdated and app shuts down out of the blue


Slow  Clb5119  1 star

Takes forever to load a video and half the time it won't load at all on the mobile app and it also doesn't save your recently watched most of the time too

Inman legacies

Another scam and another reason to boycott hbo  Inman legacies  1 star

Aside from paying my cable tv package extra for hbo and having Apple TV which enables me to use this already paid for app, all these negative reviews are right and look at the automated bogies replies from the developer. You put a review in after losing time and money and they ask all of you to provide more info. I like the movies and some shows but Bill Maher and others are too political and completely like hbo is a far left liberal agenda and I can watch political shows on actual news stations that provide more than one point of view. You are part of an uprising of Americans who like me don’t care about what political side you are on, we are sick of being scammed and ignored and you not taking responsibility for more garbage to try and make money off people who are innocently just trying to use an app that doesn’t do what you say or does so get rid of it and come back when you have grown out of screwing people over and profiting off people who try using this and follow your steps and don’t get the results you pay for. You own up to your crappy app and scheme to rip people off or you will Continue to have more boycotts by others and they will boycott anything else affiliated with you so you are costing people you are in business with future money because you truly are a shady lying piece of trash. Fix it or you’ll be exposed more than you can imagine by the American people. Stop replying to people’s reviews acting like you are fixing these problems. All your con artist lies are shameful. I really hope you all experience unnecessary financial problems and get conned and scammed in your lives and I hope it has the same effects it has had on so many, a cast majority of users to destroy and ruin yalls own lives and your families since you are in the business of doing that to all of us hard working Americans. Folks there are other ways that are out there to get hbo and stop using for Then m f v


Buffering  0123455  1 star

The stupid buffering is horrible. It takes soooo long for the content to load up. And it’s just this app. All my other video apps like Hulu, Netflix, YouTube work perfect and load pretty instantly. This is horrible.....


Enough of the buffering!!  AMM10101010101010  1 star

I have the best internet there is and I can’t ever get through a show without the constant freeze and buffer! I hate it! It’s not worth even $2 a month let alone what I’m paying.


Great content, awful app  HBOhonestrevoew  1 star

I’ve never written an app review before, but after crashing for the fifth time before playing a show, I felt it warranted such a review. Never had I thought I would choose a different streaming service just because a service crashes so frequently! Scroll through the available content too quickly and the app crashes. Rewind and hit play and the app crashes. PAUSE AND THE APP CRASHES. I expected more for 15 bucks a month. Hell I expected more from HBO. This app is crap. Please, for the love of god, patch this abomination.


Always worked well for me  JohnSHK  5 star

I’ve been using this app on and off for a few years now, mostly on pc and Apple TV (through two generations) and never had any of the problems I’ve been reading about in some of the reviews. I have experienced some issues with streaming error messages in the past, though, but they haven’t been too terrible. I’d say they’re worth it for the much higher quality of content.


Content great. App is a disaster.  legalizefreedom420  1 star

HBO should invest more development into their app (like STARZ) for better functionality and to squash software bugs.

This garbage application thinks I am not in the service area. I am. I've tried removing and re adding.


Garbage  Sarahthebeastt  1 star

Honestly I used this for awhile and even the smart TV app is trash. It does a horrible job of remembering where you left off frequently goes on for several minutes of buffering regardless of how good the internet is the fast forwarding is hard to control and of course after it forgets where you were at you have to fast forward or sit the while 10 min or so through it even if you were JUST watching it, or if you’re on your phone watching and say close the app for .2 seconds and it takes you back pretty much a whole 20 minutes. This app is garbage. Shows are great. With all the money they spend on those you’d think they want to put them on a good platform for watching. No. Trash.

Login. Login. Login.  Curt J  1 star

It’s not enough to buy this through the iTunes Store and pay the egregious monthly fee. Now you have to create an account and tie it to your Apple TV. And then, get ready to login ALL THE TIME. I have three Apple TVs, and I can no longer handle the “activate” ritual — this is completely unnecessary to deliver the content, and an unacceptable experience. HBO’s content isn’t good enough to justify the clunky logins, so I have canceled my subscription.
