I have HBO GO on the computer and on my iPad. I really want it on Roku, too. Any chance of that???

I just got a Roku with one of the specific reasons being able to use the HBO GO. I was very disappointed to find out that I can get the most of my HBO subscription. Come on Xfinity, you're the middle man here.
I have other options in my area like Astound, AT&T Uverse and Dish. Please quit cheating HBO customers.
Roku and Xfinity customers, like this Facebook page:
Here's another request for HBO Go on Roku. Just hooked everything up to find out that it wasn't available. I don't really understand why it would be available on XBox and not on the Roku.
I also would like Comcast to offer HBOGO on the ROKU player. I subscribe to HBO and I would like it available on ROKU through Comcast. Thanks.
You can write to the Comcast CEO and ask him about why HBOGO is not available on Roku. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Someone from Corporate resolutions will contact you. This is the best way to make yourself heard by the company.
I wonder why Comcast does not support Roku streaming devices. I pay for HBO and am entitled to HBOGO but Comcast does not support the device. I do not think that is fair. I urge Comcast to support Roku streaming devices.
will comcast ever support HBOgo on Roku

Interestingly enough, with Dish, although Dish supports it, you don't need the Roku for HBO Go, since the Dish on Demand for HBO includes all the HBO Go content (at least for all the HBO series, I have not compared movies, but it looks like they are all there also.) I agree their on Demand is not as robust when it comes to the big 4 networks, although the Hopper seems to pickup the same episodes that are available on demand when set to PTAT. Wierd.
"they have said first half this year."
No, I'm pretty sure they never said that. Can you point us to a source?
I think it is an "annual announcement" to keep the plebs happy.
Well it'd be good to get some sort of official verification too.
Enough is enough here... I'm moving to DISH next month. Better DVR too as the Hopper can record more then 2 shows at a time which causes major grief in my house, plus I'll get EPIX on my Roku with DISH and be paying much less.
