Comcast does not allow HBOGO on other streaming devices!

Comcast does not allow HBOGO on other streaming devices!

Comcast is just about the only company that does not allow the use of devices like PS4 or Roku to stream HBOGO. Mean while the OnDemand continuously freezes and skips. Why?

HBO Go availability on third-party devices are business decisions and deal with business terms that have not yet been agreed to between the parties.

How disappointing, again. Looking forward to the death of Comcast as anything more than an internet service provider. Please contact your congressperson to alert them against the Comcast-Time Warner merger or more of the country will be the victims of these poor customer service decisions.

 

Then again, Time Warner does not block HBOGO from the PS4. Maybe Comcast execs should listen to them.

HBO GO seems to have stopped working for Comcast subscribers. When I try to complete the activation process for my Roku 3 at hbogo.com/activate, after logging in with my Comcast credentials, I am shown a screen that says "Good news! You already have HBO as part of your XFINITY subscription." But it does not allow me to enter the Roku activation code and pair my device. The same thing occurs if I try to use the HBO GO app on my iPad.
