Still no HBOGO on Amazon Fire..... Comcast forgets WE pay for the service

Why should Amazon Fire fans be short changed vs Roku or Samsung Smart TVs? One of the many reasons Comcast is the most hated company. And they do not care...

 

The day HBOGo is availabe as a standalone I am dumping Comcast. I know I will lose some other stuff, but it will feel sooo good.

 

 

Why does Comcast hate it's customers? They sure love out money.

Why do you just jump to the worst possible conclusion, without using logic to get there?

 

HBOGo just became available to Roku a month or two ago. Who's to say it's not a contractual thing or an R&D issue?

Works for me. Wasnt easy but its worth it. Sideload the HBO GO apk Then use a bluetooth or usb keyboard with a touchpad for the mouse or use one of several remote control apps on your device and select mouse mode. Then you can click and type in the login info.

Sideload HBOGO onto your firetv/stick Install Wukong remote app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wukongtv.wkremote.client.en&hl=en In the top right corner of Wukong click on settings and select mouse mode. Open HBOGO app and using Wukong to navigate and the firetv remote to type in letters to login.

I dont want to sideload anything. I'd like Comcast to ok my use of the service that I pay for on the device of my choosing. As it stands I'm stuck with comcast as a cable provider and they get to dictate what equipment I can an cannot use? I'm not OK with that.

 

Comcast: I want HBO on my FireTV and FireTV stick.
