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

Sorry my bad - I just updated the HBOGo app released on Feb 12 and it now does work. Good deal. Would still like to see on Roku.
Great info about the Sony, The Original Logitech GoogleTV is what I have been using, still rather it be on my ROKU, COMCAST!

That's a big investment in gear if all you're interested in is HBOgo, so not really a solution other than for committed Apple addicts. I have all the gear, but would still prefer to access HBOgo through my Roku ... so much more convenient and elegant a solution.

Not to mention, the Roku is a device I already own.
I am writing this in Feb. 2013. Comcast still allows no access to HBO Go via Roku. They're spending 16 billion to buy up NBC Universal. Yet cannot afford to allow HBO GO on Roku. ??!
You van get all the episodes of many show. The cable box will only give you a few.
I've made a pledge not to buy any OnDemand movies from Xfinity until Comcast adds allows HBO Go to be streamed through Roku. I won't buy any Comcast products, period. This is sheer insolence and greed.
By the way Comcast, you have so many hot new ideas ... how about a fast forward that doesn't move at a snail's pace?
why is comcast holding us back from Roku? Do you want itto be an xtra charge for it? Comcast is a rip off compared to other cable companies.
Not having HBOGO on either your HBO premium package service or through the Roku box is really a big disapointment for me a customer who recently upgraded to your HD service!
I've been a long time Comcast and roku user, WHY can't I have access to my comcast services through my roku. The cable box is in an in convient location in my house and with my roku I can watch TV on it from any location i put my tv. Unlike the cable box and wiring. SO frustrating. I think its time to explore dish options and Not to mention STILL unable to get access to HBO on my roku
Why is Comcast not available on HBO.GO for ROKU? It is supported by Cos, ATT, and all other major cable providers. I tried it 6 months ago and again today. Still not available on my ROKU. Is all of HBO.GO programming available on Xfinity On Demand?
